Friends of Bosley St Mary's PTA
Welcome to Bosley School Parent Teacher Association (Bosley PTA)
Our PTA is a registered charity (Charity No. 1094545) which was formed to raise funds to benefit the children of our school and is managed by a committee of 3 trustees. Every parent of the children enrolled at school is automatically a ‘member’ of the PTA and is welcome to come along to our termly Committee meetings and encouraged to attend our Annual General Meeting in the autumn term.
Our main fundraising events are the Christmas Fair and the summer Rose Queen Fair (In partnership with Bosley Church and Chapel) but we also organise lots of fun events for the children throughout the year.
PTA Events held in the 2021/22 academic year
- Christmas Fair – over £1,200 raised
- Pumpkin party, Movie night and Beetledrive - £328 raised
- Stay and play with cake - £95.65 in donations
- Sports day refreshments - £50.25 in donations

Spending this academic year
- Coaches for school trips (Oak class residential, Y6 Tegg’s Nose trip, Cricket Tournament)
- BOSFEST – thanks to your fundraising support, we were able to offer children entrance to the Bosley School Festival free of charge this year.
We have plans for improvements to the Blossom classroom and would like to invest in a screen for the school hall.
How can you get involved?
We have a team of regular helpers who are an enormous help but as we are a small school, we always need more!
We need people to:
- help run events like school discos, games nights or the school fairs
- organise donations for raffle prizes
- man stalls at the school fairs
- set up/take down marquees and stalls
- bake cakes
- help with the banking and accounts or communications
- come up with new fundraising ideas.
If you would like to get involved, please let us know in September (or before!). You would be made very welcome and it’s a great way to get to know other parents and staff. You can get in touch via the school office or by contacting bosleyschoolPTA@gmail.com. We have also have a Facebook page “Friends of Bosley PTA”.
