Who are we?
Welcome to the Parents’ Association of St Edmund’s Primary School. We are a registered charity dedicated to supporting the school as it educates, nurtures and inspires our children (Charity No. 1096121). We do this through:
- Raising funds to enrich the school’s resources
- Enhancing the community spirit of our school by organising a range a social events
Typical fundraising events include: bake sales, school discos, summer festivals, raffles and Easter egg hunts, and we’re always keen to develop new ideas and social events, so come and share your ideas with us.
How you can get involved
We are a welcoming group, which meets regularly to organise events and activities for the school community. All parents and guardian automatically become members of the PA when their child joins the school, and all are warmly invited to join our meetings. Dates will be advertised on Parent Mail.
If you can’t make it to our meetings, but have some time to volunteer on an ad hoc basis, we’d love to hear from you. We are always in need of an ‘extra pairs of hands’ at events, or to bake cakes, make tea, or ‘hold the fort’.
You can also support us through Easyfundraising. It is free to register, and when you buy online the PA benefits with a small donation, and these quickly add up: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/stedmundsrcprimaryschoolabingdon/

How we spend the money
We make decisions on how money should be spent at our regularly meetings. Some events are organised to raise funds for specific items, such as new sports equipment. Other events are aimed at general fundraising and the money generated enables us to respond to need as it arises or assist the school with their Wish List.
At the moment, we are raising funds for:
- A new canopy
- Maths equipment
- Graded reading books
- Playground equipment
