The role of the PTA is to bring together parents, teachers and sponsors to raise funds and to have fun doing it! With our fundraising we aim to enrich our children’s education by providing valuable equipment, books and materials, and undertaking projects to enhance the building and facilities of the school. In addition, the PTA fund Christmas parties and other treats. We do this by organising a variety of fundraising social and educational events throughout the year.
All parents are automatically members of the PTA and we welcome anyone who has time, skills and talents to offer, or can help in any way with our fundraising activities.
The Sacred Heart PTA is affiliated to the National Confederation of Parent Teacher Associations and we have adopted the standard constitution. We also pay an annual sum to the NCPTA for insurance that covers events and public liability.
We are also registered with the Charity Commission and as such our Trustees are bound by signed declaration. Our accounts are filed every year within 10 months of the end of the PTA financial year. That is, the end of June.
For 2018/19 we will hold meetings each term in the school and these meetings will be advertised in advance in both the school newsletter and on the playground announcement board.
As PTA members you are all invited to come along and have your say. If you cannot make a meeting, minutes will be published to all those on the PTA email distribution list, uploaded to the school website and displayed on the PTA notice board. If you have any suggestions that you would like to raise with the PTA Committee, then come and talk to us, either in the playground at the beginning or end of the school day or via our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
