Parent Teachers Association Information


What is the Micklem PTA and what does it do?


It is the school's Parent-Teachers' Association. The Micklem School Association organises events and raises funds for the school, to be spent on things that the school budget cannot pay for. In the last year the PTA has paid for many things for the school including

  • Educational resources for each class
  • Subsidising pupil's school visits
  • New play equipment for the playground
  • Whole school visit to the Pantomime, Whipsnade Zoo and Knebworth House
  • Digital stop watch for the playground


Recent events have included:


  • Summer Fair / Barbecue
  • DVD Movie Night
  • Regular Discos
  • School uniform shop
  • Quiz Night

We also fund raise through the Giving Machine Website and easyfundraising. Please join at and  and help us raise funds


We are currently raising money towards improving the school playground.


Committee Members


These are elected at the AGM. Committee members plan and organise events and also decide on how money raised is to be spent. Committee meetings are held once per half term and before a big event. Committee members can attend as many meetings as they are able. In the future some meetings may be held in the daytime, to allow members who cannot get childcare to attend.

If you are interested in helping the PTA in anyway then contact the school office.

Forthcoming Events


Please find below dates for our forthcoming events



PRE-LOVED school uniform items can be purchased within the School Shop on Arbor.  These are items that have been donated by parents and then washed by the PTA, ready to sell for as little as £1.00 per item.


Should you be interested in making a purchase, please remember that the School Shop can be found on the main dashboard of your child’s profile, at the very bottom within Arbor. You can only put through a purchase if the number of items you are trying to purchase is the same as or less than the number of items we physically have in stock. For example, if we have 2 book bags left and you try to purchase 3 you will receive a note, and must change it to this number or below e.g. "The maximum value for this field is 2". If there aren’t any items available, the +Add button will disappear, and you won't be able to pay through the Arbor App.


The office staff will check Arbor once a week for purchases made and we shall send your items home with your child, however should you require something urgently, please let us know.
