Welcome to The Winns Primary School PSA

 

Who are we?

We are you! If you are a parent of a child at Winns Primary School or a member of staff at the school, you're automatically a member of the PSA (Parent Staff Association) – your membership begins on your child's first day at the school and ends when your last child leaves us. Being part of the PSA is also a great way of meeting people and to find out what’s going on throughout the whole school.

 

What do we do?

We have fun! The main aims of the PSA are to support the whole school community, bringing together parents, staff and students. We also raise funds to purchase equipment and provide facilities for the children that are not normally paid for by the Local Authority.

PSA Calendar for 2016

Our aim is to celebrate and punctuate the school calendar with events, fundraisers and arts projects. Here are some of the events we have planned for this term:

 

Spring and Summer Terms

Mad Hatter's Tea Party - Thursday 28th April, 3:30 p.m. in the playground.

Summer Community Day - Saturday 2nd July

 

We are now looking for volunteers to help at these events. If you'd like to make some props, bake cakes (can be any kind of snacks too), help on the day at an event or help in any kind of way, we'd love to hear from you! Please contact us at PSA@winns.waltham.sch.uk.

'Carnival' Community Day

This year’s Community Day took place on Saturday, 2nd July.  The weather stayed dry and lots of people came along to join in the Carnival fun.  There were tasty refreshments, games to play and inflatable fun for both adults and children; everybody had a brilliant time.  Thank you to everybody who came along and supported the event; over £1400 was raised for the school. Thank you to the parents and staff of the PSA for organising and running the day.  Everybody’s hard work certainly paid off.

 

Some projects we funded this year!

£800 was contributed to help fund the Farms for City Children trip at Treginis Farm, in Pembrokeshire. This kept costs low for parents and provided a wonderful experience for the children. 

 

£2000 was spent on replenishing the children’s golden time toys. There was a huge sort out and reorganising of all the existing toys and games and a whole load of new ones brought for every class to enjoy.

 

£3000 paid for a range of musical workshops enjoyed by all years, from Nursery to Year 6. 

 

What can you do to help?

We need people who can spare a small amount of their time to help the PSA. Can you make coffee? Bake a cake? Count money? Listen to a child read? There are a huge number of ways you can be part of the PSA – either as a committee member or on an ad-hoc basis.

 

We want to hear from you!

We welcome anyone who wants to get involved. You can help out at specific events, like our Community Day, or volunteer on an ad-hoc basis. We need all types of skills from running a stall and folding paper to sourcing gifts for a raffle. Go on, get involved! .
