Welcome to St Agnes ACE Academy Parent Teacher Association (St Agnes PTA). St Agnes PTA is a registered charity, run by parents, teachers and carers who arrange fundraising events throughout the academic year to raise money to enhance the educational experience of children attending the school. This year the main focuses of the fundraising are for the new library and the playground.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Please come along to one of our meetings. They are usually held at the start of every term. Dates are on the school calendar, the school newsletter and the PTA Facebook page. We welcome and actively encourage parents to attend any of these meetings.

Our current Chair is Liz Parkins, Secretary Tamsin Ranson and secretary Pippa Sandham.

IMPACT OF PREVIOUS FUNDING
The PTA raise money to enhance the school experience for the children. Over the last academic year we funded coaches (for up to 2 trips per class as well as a choir trip), wet weather gear for year 1, a microscope, additional books for the library, tracksuit tops and football kit, 16 tablets and a charging trolley, Christmas presents for each class, a theatre trip for years 5&6 and recorders. We also funded workshops for the whole school.
Gift Aid fundraising
St Agnes PTA is now registered with HMRC for gift aid. This means we can claim tax back on donations including the disco and film night payments and any direct donations. We cannot claim tax back on any money given in exchange for goods (eg a raffle or cake/uniform sale).
Now that we are registered with gift aid we will occasionally try to raise money via direct donations for specific items for the school. Donors and individual amounts will not be published – a record will be kept for HMRC purposes only.
If you would like to contribute towards this, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
