Parent School Association
Chestnuts Parent Support Association is all about fund-raising events to support the school. We are a registered charity #1147386
All parents and carers belong to the PSA and we are always happy to welcome new faces who want to be involved. Please get in touch. In our March AGM we appointed Becky Rykalski (Y2 & Y6 parent) and Clare Beasley (Reception, Y2 & Y6 parent) as Co-Chairs, and officially named Michelle Sidhu (Y2 parent) as Treasurer. Download their first newsletter from the bottom of this page.
We work together with all our parents and carers, and local community groups on fun family fund-raising events: , the Winter Fair, Year 6 Careers Day and other occasional events.

SPECIAL PROJECT: POOL REFURBISHMENT
This year the PSA have agreed a special project to fund. The pool is in desperate need of refurbishment – the floor and walls need significant improvement. The WHOLE school benefits from this facility with on-site swimming lessons but unfortunately the hire costs only pay for the daily upkeep. There will be a target of £7000 and we hope that dedicated events such as the Barn Dance will raise the money to enable the school to continue to have this fantastic facility.
Join our meetings to plan events and vote on funding applications - everyone is welcome.
Meetings Schedule - 7:30pm in the school's Meetings Room
Evening meetings are on different days of the week to offer everyone a chance to come.
Emma (Reception parent) is running coffee mornings soon after evening meetings for those who find it easier to come during the school day.
