All Hallows PTA
All Hallows PTA
We are a group of like-minded caring parents/guardians that want to give back, to support the school and its students and teachers and make a positive impact on student’s lives.
As parents ourselves, we know you are busy and have limited time so the PTA organises one event a term to reduce the commitment required. All parents are welcome to join and support the PTA activities as little or as much as you can do.
Like the All Hallows Catholic School PTA Facebook page for updates on meetings and activities. PTA Facebook page. If you want to get more involved, please email either
Matthew McGrory – Chair@pta.allhallows.net or
Phil Howell on email@example.com
The PTA started in 2019 and have run a series of fun Quiz’s, Bingo evenings, and a Jazz Supper. We have helped build the schools careers programme and set up Alumni portal. We raised £2130 up to the end of May 2020 and we continue to raise money. During lockdown, we were able to provide support to disadvantaged families within our school community. As we all experienced, things were more challenging during Covid and lockdown, so we adapted and were able to run events online. If you would like to make a donation, please go to our JustGiving fundraising page here.
PTA Mission statement
“To support the wellbeing of the students at the school”
We will seek to help to create a positive school experience for all current students and work towards forming long-term connections with the alumni.
PTA Strategic Initiatives
• Support a diverse Careers programme
• Raise money and support key initiatives
• Leverage the talents of the school community, to enhance the school experience and opportunities for students.
As a parent or carer, how can you help?
Help us build a diverse Careers Programme
• Talk about your career
• Mentor students
• Take part in the career’s day
• Provide training to students/teachers on your career area
• Give students interview practice (Any involvement with students will be managed through the school in accordance with the schools’ safeguarding policies and procedures).
So, if you have a career journey to share, interview techniques to advise on, you work or study at a university or have experience of being or managing apprentices, we really would like to hear from you and encourage you to sign up via the link. Mr Carney, Careers Lead will then be in touch.

The PTA are supported currently by the school Finance Office, who do a great job and we are very grateful to them. However, we plan to move towards charitable status once we raise over £5000 in a year.
