How you can get involved

 

School Community

Westbury Park School is renowned for it's strong community and lively social events. This year we've purchased a Shaun the Sheep figure, which we'd love all the children to decorate. Download the form here and design a disc to be stuck on Shaun to make your mark! Deadline is 1 June 2015.

Come along to meetings

We hold one WPSA meeting each term to which everyone is invited. The agenda is sent out to all parents via the class reps before the meeting. At the meetings we discuss:

  • how much money we need to raise;
  • what events need to be run in order to raise the money;
  • what we are going to spend the money on (the fun bit!).

 

Join the committee

Being part of the team is fun and rewarding. Not only that, but the work you do positively benefits all of our children! We're currently looking to recruit a Communications Officer, starting this Autumn term. Email us to find out more: wpsateam@gmail.com

 

Volunteer to help organise events

Major fundraisers, such as the Christmas Bazaar, are organised by a team of volunteers from across the school. In addition, each year group is allocated one cake sale and one event to organise, which are run by the class reps with the help of parents in that year group.

Volunteers are often needed for a whole host of tasks including selling tickets, helping on the day, counting money after the event, etc..

If you'd like to help with organising an event, please email us at: wpsateam@gmail.com

If you've volunteered recently and need to claim back expenses, click here to print a WPSA Expenses Claims Form.

 

Donate to the school

Some parents are able to give their time to organising or running events throughout the year. But what if you want to contribute but other commitments are preventing you from getting involved in a hands-on way? Well, there are other ways to help…..

Join the Westbury Park Gift Aid scheme: Gift Aid is a way for UK tax payers to increase the value of donations they make to charity by allowing the charity to reclaim the tax they paid on the money they’ve donated.

Sign up to raise money for our school through Easyfundraising: Easyfundraising is a way of raising money for the school simply by shopping online. It doesn’t cost you anything – when you make purchases through retailers who are signed up to the scheme they automatically donate a percentage to the school. Simple!
