Parents' Association - UPS PA

Mission Statement

The Parents' Association (PA) mission is to help assist the spiritual and social development of the school community and to raise funds for the school to be used to help enhance the children's education.

The PA should not be involved in the 'day to day' running of the school, any queries should be directed to the Headteacher or the Senior Management Team.

PA Members

Each family becomes a member of the Parents' Association on joining the school and contributes an annual fee of £20 which is included in the Autumn term account. Subs are usually added to the Autumn term school bills and then transferred to the PA accounts at a later date. The PA holds a meeting once every half term and all members are welcome. The Headteacher is not a member of the PA, but is invited to all meetings to aid communication between the school and the PA.

PA Events

Throughout the year the PA organises a variety of events for the parents, children and the school. Some of the following are annual events, whilst others we change to keep the social occasions interesting:

  • Children's Disco
  • Christmas Fair
  • Dads & Daughters Film Night
  • Parents' Party
  • Children's Bingo
  • Parents' Quiz Night
  • Summer Family Fun Day

Parents please check the PA News & Events webpage regularly for information about forthcoming UPSPA events and for information on UPSPA fund-raising schemes.

The PA also run the Drop and Go service, Friday Morning Café, Secondhand Uniform Sales, Theatre Tickets etc. Details can be found in the calendar and the PA Newsletter.

Funds raised from events are put towards a variety of school projects that provide resources and equipment for the school. In the past the PA has helped provide an outdoor climbing area and stage, equipment for the science lab, interactive whiteboards, computers, books, a school mini bus, AstroTurf and lighting, the Woodland Walk and fitting out the new St Ursula's chalet.

We know that everyone leads busy lives with many family commitments, but we would be pleased to have your support in any way possible, either by volunteering your help at an event, or just seeing you there.
