The main aim of Ashley Down’s PSA is to create and maintain a sense of community between families and staff which supports the school as a whole. The PSA are also passionate about raising additional funds for the school in order to support and enrich the fantastic teaching and learning environment which already exists at Ashley Down Primary.
Events have a community and social focus and include Christmas and summer fairs, table top sales, film nights, music nights, quiz nights and school discos. If you have any ideas about other events you would like to see please contact us.
How is the money allocated?
All funds raised are banked with the Treasurer in the main PSA account, apart from the cake sale money, which is retained by the school and used directly by the year group that raised it.
Anyone can make a bid to the PSA requesting funds for a project that benefits the children. These are submitted on a bid form and discussed by the PSA before they decide whether to support it or not.
A bid is generally more likely to be approved if it benefits a wide range of the school population. However, all bids are welcome and will each be considered on their own merits.
What has the PSA funded?
Lots of the activities and resources that the 400+ pupils enjoy at school are funded by the PSA. Our school has benefited from theatre performances, poetry workshops and visiting birds of prey, all of which wouldn’t have been possible without the PSA’s funding.
