Plaxtol Primary School is fortunate in having a flourishing parent association, the Plaxtol School Association (PSA).
The PSA is a registered charity (number 1026804) and its objectives are to advance the education of pupils of Plaxtol Primary School. All families of pupils at our school, as well as staff, are members of the PSA. The PSA holds social events, fundraising activities and applies grants to support Plaxtol School. More than ever we need your help, ideas and experience!
The PSA has a closed Facebook group for parents and carers of current pupils only. The group is used to share information, publicise the work of the PSA and promote fundraising events. The group is run by parents for parents, and there is no representation from the school itself. If you are a parent or carer of a current pupil at Plaxtol School and would like to join the Facebook group, please click on the link below:
Do you have some time to help us, either as a Trustee or general volunteer? We have a wide range of activities, including fundraising, which you can get involved in - for any length of time. Volunteering is fun, and a great way to meet other parents and get involved in the school. Please contact the PSA for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org We'd love to hear from you!
Most years, the PSA runs a Summer Fair and a Christmas Fair, open to the school and local community. The PSA also organises Plaxtol Fireworks. There are many other events - look out for them on the PSA Facebook page and advertised around the village!
As the PSA is a registered charity, we are able to claim an extra 25% of all monies given by parents who are taxpayers (as straight donations or by way of purchases at fundraising events), from the government. Gift Aid is an enormous benefit to the School - and so we ask all parents who are taxpayers to complete a gift aid form (below) to accompany any donation or purchases at PSA events to the PSA and return it to School.
It's completely free and you shop in exactly the same way, but companies make a donation to the PSA every time you shop!

The PSA has teamed up with Stikins to offer parents the opportunity to purchase labels for your children's school uniform, whilst earning the school commission at the same time! The labels simply stick onto the wash-care label of clothing. They can also be used in shoes, on bags and on water bottles. Each order placed quoting the school reference number (15918) will provide the school with 30% commission. Click here to order Stikins name labels and raise money for Plaxtol School.
