Wood Field Primary School PSA is made up of parents and staff who work together to raise funds to support the children in school. We have a committee in place to ensure the everyday running of the PSA is seamless and that everyone gets the most from the fundraising. We are a registered charity with the Charity Commission and we are also members of Parenkind. Every parent is automatically a member of the PSA and we welcome any support you can give.
You can help by:
- Giving your time: Without volunteers we can not run our events
- Giving your money: Your donations/payments for events go a long way
- Entering our School Lottery
- Purchasing 'My Name Tags' name labels for school uniform
- Using the 'Easy Fundrasing' app
In the academic year 2021-22, the PSA fundraised a staggering £30,052 for the school.
The PSA set up class Whatsapp groups each year to help with communication regarding PE days, school trips etc. Please see the Whatsapp guidelines here.
Whether they’re returning to nursery, primary, or secondary school your child will have plenty of clothing and equipment they’ll need to take with them for the day. Every year, towards the end of the school holidays, parents make a mad dash around the shops getting the last minute school essentials such as backpacks and highlighter pens.
All parents know that the chances of some of these items making it to the end of the school year is pretty slim, but that doesn’t stop your child nagging you to buy the latest style of bag or pencils with their favourite cartoon character on them. One solution to tackling missing clothing and equipment is to invest in name labels that can be attached before the start of term to avoid things going walkabout, and help to return them to you if they do.
In fact, a My Nametags study revealed that school jumpers, school books, and stationery are the top three most commonly lost items for children, making it all the more important to label your child’s belongings before term starts.
