What is the PSA and what do we do?
 
 
The Crofton Infant School Parent Staff Association (PSA) is a group of 50 members of parents and staff from the school. Working as a registered charity (No. 1052854) , our key role is to coordinate numerous fundraising events throughout the school year in order to help fund educational or fun projects within the school that the school may otherwise not be able to provide. In addition, we run a highly successful school shop (further details below).
 
We also see that the role of the PSA is to raise these funds in a way that adds fun for the children and parents as well, which is why our motto is “Fun for Funds”.
Recent projects include:

    * Funding of new blinds for the school (£2,300)

    * Outdoor classroom, reading areas and storage (£6,000)

    * Play equipment and guided reading books (£6,000)
   
    * Running track and its additional facilities (£20,000) 
 
    * Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) (£22,000)

PSA Meeting Minutes and Financial status
 
Below are links to the most recent minutes and accounts:

* 2012-2013 PSA Accounts

Matched Funding Scheme

This a staff benefit, generally offered by larger employers such as Banks and Insurance companies. It offers a £ for £ donation to match a sum of funds that you, the employee, has raised for a charity of your choosing, usually up to a maximum sum per year.
 
Please remember that many companies want employees to participate in matched funding, and actively encourage them to become involved in community projects, including School Fairs, Cake Sales etc, by offering to match any funds they raise.
 
We are looking for more of people to get involved. We can't raise the funds for all the extras our children need, if we don't have your support! Please contact your HR department to see if they are interested in being part of the scheme.
 
Full details of the scheme can be found here
