Christ Church School Parent School Association

The PSA supports the vision and aims of the school by promoting parental and family involvement in the life of the school. We organise fund raising and social events to contribute to the development of a stimulating learning environment for all our children.

What events are organised?

Every year we hold a very popular Summer Barbecue and Christmas Bazaar. We have also organised events for children including Discos, Cinema Nights and Easter Egg Hunts. Events for parents have included Ladies Pamper Evenings, Quiz Nights and a Wine Tasting. We also provide coffee at School Church Services.

What is the money used for?

The main criteria for funding projects is that it will be universal (ie benefit the whole Key Stage or school, or year group - if future year groups also benefit).The main focus in recent years has been developing the school grounds. We provided new play equipment for the front playground and also the school field, including the trim trail and developing a nature area. This year we part funded a trim trail around the play equipment outside the library to make it suitable for all-weather play. We have funded the purchase of IPads to be shared by a whole class and equipment for Charanga, the new popular music scheme. We have provided new play equipment for Nursery. We subsidise theatre visits (such as pantomime), music programmes such as the popular steel drumming workshops and provide autograph books for Year 6 children as they leave the school.

How do I know what’s going on?

There are PSA Notice boards next to the office window and outside the nursery. We publish a PSA Newsletter and post to the Christ Church School group on Facebook:

How can I help?

Parents support the school in many different ways from running after school clubs, helping on school trips and hearing children read. You can help the PSA to support the school by coming along to events, offering to help out or even helping to organise events. You can also help by sharing your ideas for fund raising or social events, and by attending the AGM in the Autumn term.

Easy Fundraising

An easy way to help fundraising is to buy online goods via 'Easy Fundraising'. It doesn't cost you anything, you access all your usual favourite shopping sites, but the PSA is paid for every hit!

If you buy your school name tags (iron on and stickers) for clothes and belongings from My Nametags, please use this link
