Paxcroft School Association (PSA) is a charity set up to raise money to enrich the school experience for all children at Paxcroft. We can provide things that the standard school budget cannot stretch to and give opportunities to bring our school community together.
Successful events have included Christmas and Summer Fayres, discos, movie mornings, bake sales, treasure hunts, craft afternoons, bingo and the popular ice-cream Fridays in Summer!
We contribute to the Key Stage 1 Christmas Party and Key Stage 2 pantomime trips each year, as well as providing leavers’ gifts (e.g. tee-shirts) at the end of Year 6. We have also raised money for the Key Stage 1 pirate ship, Key Stage 2 adventure trail, seating around the school grounds, playground toys, speakers and lighting for productions, as well as library books and atlases.
All families are automatically PSA members and volunteers are always welcomed for organising or helping at events. The Annual General Meeting each October is where elections are held to form the committee, and to plan the coming year’s activities.
The PSA Facebook page is a good source of information about fundraising initiatives: https://www.facebook.com/groups/PaxcroftPSA
Ongoing activities include our successful nearly-new uniform stall – a chance to snap up good quality bargains, either at table-top sales, or through our Facebook page.
Funds can also be raised during routine online shopping, at no cost to you, by signing up to Easy Fundraising, and Amazon Smile. They donate a percentage from sales to the PSA, so please encourage friends and family to sign up via the following links:
