Parents, Staff & Friends Association
The aim of the PSFA (Parents, Staff & Friends Association)
Whether you join Ewell Castle School as a parent or member of staff, you are automatically a member of the PSFA. The aim of the PSFA (formerly PTA) is to organise social events and fund-raising activities for the purpose of creating a "Ewell Castle School Community" involving children, families and staff from our three School sites – Chessington Lodge, Glyn House and The Castle. We are a parent led association, with involvement from various members of staff who provide experience and knowledge of the School. We hold meetings once a term to discuss and decide upon upcoming events – some of which include a hugely popular Summer Ball, Christmas Fair, and our not to be missed annual Fireworks Night. We also support the events at the beginning of the academic year to welcome new families to the School.
What we have raised money for
The PSFA provided a large contribution towards the funding of the new School minibus and outdoor furniture (including table tennis tables) at The Castle and Glyn House. We have also been able to support the School by making a contribution towards the cost of a 3D Laser Printer for the DT Department. Help us raise even more funds this year so we can purchase additional equipment and items that will immediately benefit all the children at the School.
How we work
We hold an AGM every year and anyone is welcome to come along. Our fund raising and social events rely on the support of parents and we are always grateful for a fresh pair of eyes and new ideas. We hope you and your children will enjoy everything on offer at Ewell Castle, and we count on your support to make our events a success, for the benefit of all the children at the School. If you can spare even a small amount of time, we would love to hear from you at email@example.com as there are many other ways to get involved – for example to help organise and manage our events. We will keep you updated on forthcoming events via the PSFA tab on the School website, via the Parent Portal and via our Facebook and Twitter pages (@EwellCastlePSFA). Please also look out for our termly newsletter. Just email us your suggestions, and let us know what events you are able to help with. We look forward to seeing you throughout the year!
