» Earn Money for AVA PTA by labelling your children's school clothes!!!!


Welcome to the PTA section of our website. The AVA PTA is very active and raises thousands of pounds every year to enhance the education of the children at the school.  The PTA is a way for parents and carers of children in the academy to come together and help support the work of the school.


We're a friendly, welcoming group and all parents are automatically members. Please come along to a meeting or speak to a committee member if you'd like to find out more, alternatively email theavapta1@gmail.com.

We organise a number of fun events for Parents, Children and the Community. These include:

  • Bingo
  • Quiz
  • Discos
  • Magic Show
  • Christmas Fair
  • Film Afternoons

We have recently contributed towards the following trips/experiences:

  • Outdoor toys for Primary school
  • Trip to the Zoo for KS1
  • Farm Experience for Early Years
  • Year 6 Residential
  • Year 4 Residential
  • Pantomime for all Primary children
  • Recorders for Year 3

PTA Latest News


During these uncertain times, the AVA PTA have cancelled all public events for the foreseeable future until we’re told it is safe to resume. By doing so, we are ensuring that we are all staying safe. However, in the wake of this, we will lose thousands of pounds of revenue, so we are looking towards other avenues whereby our parental and local community can help support us at no additional cost to them, but by using one of the refusal links below, this will enable the AVA PTA to generate some donations back from the companies. 

These are just some of the ways the AVA PTA are raising funds. Please help support us by shopping via the following link for the just giving machine, or maybe you need arts and crafts, why not try a free toucan box (+p&p), or maybe you’ve thought about changing energy supplier to Octopus! Then please use our unique link. 

The Giving Machine 🛍 🛒 💻 

We encourage you all to stay home and stay safe. If you do need supplies from the shops, please look to doing what you can online to avoid unnecessary outings. If you are ordering online, please can I ask you use our platform THE GIVING MACHINE. It’s basically a search engine for all major retailers and supermarkets in one place and our PTA will get a small percentage back. As always, the AVA PTA want to thank you for your support. We are truly blessed to be part of this community. 


Toucan Box Subscriptions🎨 

Try a FREE toucan box (plus £2.95 postage) 

For those of you looking for activities to entertain the kids while schools are closed during these horrible times, the AVA PTA have partnered with Toucan Box, the PTA will receive £5 per subscription. Please stay at home and keep safe. 


Octopus energy🐙 

If you’ve decided to change your gas and or electricity supplier and have done the necessary research and then decide to go with Octopus Energy, please sign up via this link and both yourself and the AVA PTA will receive a £50 credit each. 


As always I’d like to thank you all for your support and remember please stay home & stay safe.
