The PSA is a registered charity (number 1026804). 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 for grants to support Plaxtol School. More than ever we need your help, ideas and experience!
As a charity, the PSA is legally required to have trustees with legal responsibility for the charity's budget and to ensure that decisions are made in line with the charity's constitution. These currently comprise of the chair, treasurer, secretary, and two committee officers – all of whom are trustees. Decisions about how PSA money is spent are usually made at regular PSA meetings. Requests from the School for funding come to the PSA trustees, via the headteacher, and are discussed by all those at the PSA meetings to ensure they fulfil the purpose of the charity.
Every parent/carer at Plaxtol Primary School is part of the PSA and can get involved fundraising for our School - you can give as little or as much time as you like! It's a great way to meet and get to know other parents/carers, and to see the School in action. New ideas for fundraising are always welcome, and support will be given if you would like to run a fundraiser yourself. PSA meetings are held each term. Dates are advertised in School newsletters, on the PSA Facebook page and on posters outside School.
Please contact the PSA for more information: email@example.com

Our next PSA meeting is on Monday 25th September 2023, 2-3pm, at School. Everyone welcome!
