Sebright Parent and Staff Association (PSA) is the coming together of parents and staff of Sebright Primary to raise funds to enhance the education and experience of all Sebright pupils. Money raised via PSA events is used to help pay for a range of school activities, from excursions and one off experiences, to providing professional development for teaching and non-teaching staff, as well as helping to upgrade the school and its surroundings.
Alongside fundraising, a key aim of Sebright PSA is to build a stronger school community, with events throughout the year that are focused specifically on bringing Sebright families together.
Sebright PSA is committed to celebrating the diversity of our school - it is one of our many strengths of our school community and we’re proud of it.
If you have any ideas on how to raise funds, or otherwise help build the community, please feel free to approach any of the SPA committee members if you see them in and around the school or attend one of our regular meetings the first Friday of each half term at 2:30pm. We are always looking for help in planning or delivering events - so please do get involved! Everyone is welcome.
Update - 16th November 2020
First, a big thank you!
We were able to hold our AGM on October 23rd and able to vote in our new Constitution and confirm our Committee Members. It took us a lot longer than we were expecting to get to this point (thanks again Covid!) but the meeting took less than 15mins. That has got to be some kind of record for an AGM! Thank you to everyone who attended - it was great to see so many new faces and old friends - lets hope we can get back together in person for the next one.
As you can imagine, fundraising in the current Covid climate is challenging. Our first event was the Bright clothes uniform free day, where the school came together to raise £280! We are also selling the Key Stage tea towels, and I know there orders well in excess of 150. Orders are now closed, but we may have some spares - get in touch if you haven’t put in an order, but still want one.
All this is just to get the ball rolling - now we’d now like to hear from you - the Sebright School community and your ideas. Our next Fundraising meeting will be November 26th at 1pm on Zoom - details to follow and EVERYONE is welcome! So please join us and share your ideas and plans!
We currently have some festive fun planned for class bubbles, so keep an eye out for further information and call outs for help.
But importantly, we’re also looking to run online Sebright community events! One idea is an online quiz - has lockdown sharpened your general knowledge? Have you run an amazing quiz for your family and/or friends? Are you keen to run a zoom quiz night for the school community? If you are that person (and there must be one amongst us), please do get in touch or better yet come to the meeting on the 26th! All other ideas for online events welcome.
The Sebright PSA team are looking forward to working with you all.
See you soon,
Margo Clark and Sam Willis
