The Parent School Association’s aim is to raise money in support of the school and forge closer links between home, school and the local community. Alongside all other parents and staff, you are an automatic member of the Association.
Your PSA is run by a committee which holds regular planning meetings and provides weekly information via the school newsletter.
Throughout the year we organise a variety of events which we hope will appeal to all the different age groups and interests that make up our school community, Christmas Fayres, Easter Egg Hunts, School Discos and Quiz Nights to name but a few.
Funds raised by the PSA can be directed where the staff, parents and carers feel the money is needed most; refurbishing play areas or buying IT equipment for example.
How you get involved is up to you but please do get involved! Whether you’re joining the committee or buying a raffle ticket – everyone’s contribution is equally welcome and valid. The PSA is a major contributor to school funds.
There are many ways you can help:
Such an easy way to raise money for minimal effort. Last year we raised over £330 from just 32 registered users. So whether you’re doing Christmas shopping or your normal online grocery delivery please use Easyfundraising.org.uk!

Buying Clothes Labels
We are registered with two companies who print labels for clothing, equipment, lunchboxes etc. We can receive money from these companies if you buy through them and make the appropriate reference to Ightham School:
- My Name Tags – Go to www.mynametags.com and enter our school ID 31516 on the checkout page.
- Simply Stuck – Go to www.simplystuck.com and click on the ‘raise money for schools’ button at the checkout and select county ‘Kent’ and town ‘Sevenoaks’ from the drop down menus and finally click on Ightham School.
Participation, donations and other requests for help will come to you via parentmail and/or bookbags so please keep up to date with all our info to find out what events are coming up, how you can help and how we've helped the school.
