Parent and Staff Association
A message from St Agatha's PSA Team
Welcome to the PSA section of St Agatha's School website.
We are very fortunate to have a PSA that is such an integral part of the school community and has been so for many years. In its time, the PSA has raised many thousands of pounds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and the facilities in school in general.
But it’s about much more than just fundraising.
The PSA exists to support and celebrate the wonderful community spirit we have at St Agatha's. It aims to provide closer links between home and school, and it's an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school - all working towards a common goal. And most importantly, it’s about having fun!
Every parent and staff member is part of the PSA community. If you would like to be actively involved, we would love to hear from you – whether you can give an hour of your time, you have an idea for an event or activity, you have a skill you can share, or you simply would like to make new friends within the school. You can contact us via this website or simply email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our school is a place where we have great friends, a place of great community spirit - and we're excited about some of the great activities the PSA is supporting in the year ahead.
On behalf of all the children we would like to thank you for your very valuable support of the PSA which enriches their learning experiences and makes their time in school so enjoyable.
For a more comprehensive guide to the PSA please see the document below.
The PSA Committee
St Agatha's PSA is a voluntary charitable organisation made up of parents and staff members, with the aim of creating a sense of community within the school whilst raising funds that can be used to help enrich the learning environment for our children.
Our Class Representatives provide the day to day link between the PSA and parents and help organise volunteers for fundraising events such as Summer/Christmas Fairs and Cake Sales. Informal social events can be arranged by Class Reps and tickets for end of term school social events are often sold this way. In order for the Class Reps to communicate effectively with Parents and Carers they will put together a class list which contains contact information for those parents who wish to be included.
Examples of information on this list are;
Child Date of Birth
Parent Telephone Number
Parents can chose which information they share with the class representative and also have the option of their information being shared with other parents within the class. The sharing of the class list is done to help parents communicate with each other independently. In providing your contact details to your Class Rep you are giving them consent to use these details to contact you about school and PSA related events.
If you chose to be included on the list shared with other parents you are consenting to other parents contacting you if they wish. Parents have the right to have withdraw their information from the class list at any point but if they have previously given consent for their information to be shared with other parents within the class they would need to contact each of these parents themselves if they no longer wished them to hold their information. St Agatha's Primary School and St Agatha's PSA operate independently and St Agatha's Primary School do not share contact information with the PSA.
