Parents Association

Sebright Parents’ Association was set up at the end of 2013 and officially launched on February 14th 2014. We aim to work
together with Sebright’s parents, carers, staff and children to build a strong community within the school, put on events and raise funds for activities and trips.

We have hosted a very successful Winter Festival for the last 3 years, and organized various events including a school disco and a trip to a west end theatre production of Stick Man. We are always open to parents’ suggestions of other events or trips we could
organise.

All parents are welcome to join SPA – or drop in when they can. All help, small or huge, is needed and appreciated. Committee meetings are held every 2/3 weeks (a text is sent out to parents) and everyone is welcome to attend. When planning big events, posters inform parents of help needed and important meetings planned. Please email us at sebrightparentsassociation@hotmail.com with any questions or comments.

Summer 2017

SPA has ended the school year on a high! A whole school theatre experience (of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe), a glow-fest of a school disco, a cinema trip for Year 6, goodies for sale at the school's annual summer fair and ice lolly sales on Fridays to finish the summer term! SPA is rightly not only proud of the all the amazing parents that helped make this long list of FUN happen, but the school's support has been outstanding and SPA is extremely grateful. SPA is already making plans for the new school year in the autumn- starting with the new Year 6 going to see Dr Seuss 'The Lorax' at the Old Vic in October 2017. We wish all the parents, but in particular school staff, a restful and fun summer holiday.

How is money raised?

Sebright Parent Association raises money through events. They often hold one main event each school term – for example, a Christmas fair in the winter, a quiz in the spring, and a summer fair. Other Sebright Parent events include school uniform sales, discos, international evenings and many more. They’re always looking for new fundraising ideas

How is money spent?

Funds raised by Sebright Parent Association are intended to provide ‘extras’ not already provided by the school's main income – often 'fun things' that make learning more interesting and exciting.

Sebright Parent association and the Executive Head teacher decide how to spend funds.

How can I be involved in Sebright Parent Association?

There are many different ways you can help with Sebright Parent Association whether you have lots of time to offer or not.

Some of the roles are time-consuming, although also rewarding. If you can’t commit to a big job, look out for things you can do less frequently (eg running a stall at the summer fair, baking for a cake sale). And you can always support Sebright Parent Association events by simply turning up.

"Being part of SPA has been a wonderful way to meet other parents and connect with the community at Sebright. Working together to put on events and special days for the kids is fun and rewarding. It's also a great way for parents to voice their opinions and any concerns they might have regarding the school in a relaxed and comfortable environment”
