Everyone is welcome to get involved with the PSA, at any level of commitment.
Check out our newsletters for details of the next PSA meeting. These are held either in the mornings at school, or in the evenings at The Papermakers Arms.
We appreciate that it is not always possible to attend PSA meetings, so feel free to contact any of the PSA committee or your class rep, with ideas, suggestions and feedback. Contact details are below.
We are always looks for help and support at events both at planning stages and on the day, either behind the scenes or in the thick of it.
New ideas for fundraising are always needed and we will support any individuals or groups that would like to take on an event themselves.

Did you know that whenever you buy anything online - from your weekly shop to your annual holiday - you could be collecting free donations for Plaxtol School.
There are over 3,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation, including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline and Sainsbury's – it doesn't cost you a penny extra!
It's as easy as 1, 2, 3...
1. Head to https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/plaxtolsa/ and join for free.
2. Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping.
3. After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to your good cause for no extra cost whatsoever!
There are no catches or hidden charges and Plaxtol School will be really grateful for your donations.
Thank you for your support.
We are very lucky to have been chosen as a recipient of the Coop Local Community Fund to help us raise money towards an all-weather canopy in the playground. This will give the children more opportunity to play and learn outside.
It’s really easy to help towards the fund. All you have to do is to become a member of the Coop (i.e. register for a loyalty card) shop at the Coop and make Plaxtol School your ‘chosen cause’. Plaxtol School will receive 1% of every Coop own brand product you buy and 5% from the value of a carrier bag. As a member you will also receive 5% back to spend at your leisure.
Once you have chosen Plaxtol School via your online account or by telephone it doesn’t matter which branch you shop at (our three nearest are Borough Green, York Parade in Shipbourne, and just off Higham Lane), because when you buy your items your membership card will register your purchases and chosen cause. I also need to mention that this also applies to the purchasing of funeral arrangements. Hopefully no one will be needing this service and we can raise the money just by buying food.!
Please let your friends and family know as they can help too. In fact anyone living within 15 miles of the school can choose Plaxtol as their local cause. They can log on to their Coop account and find Plaxtol School under the Community Local Fund section.
The websites below will give you some more information.
Please do spread the word as this is such an effortless way for us to raise money, all we need to do is our normal shopping.
We will remain a selected cause until 27 October 2018 so we have lots of time to buy from the Coop and keep raising money.
