- About Us
- Pupil Care
- Outside the Classroom
We are a group of parents and staff from The Elms who:
We have year group class representatives that liaise with parents and the PSA to promote events and enable parents to contact each other.
We are fortunate to be able to raise funds at these events and we donate money to the school for various projects or equipment. This further enhances the already excellent facilities at the school and makes the children aware of how fundraising works. We set aside funds each year to contribute to the Year 6 leavers.
Supporting the school
The PSA uses some of the profits made to support the school in non-academic activities, usually by donating equipment or sponsoring extra-curricular activities.
Examples of these include infant playground equipment for the Lower School, the Lower School trim trail, the Gazebo and the new adventure playground at the Upper School, the outdoor classroom at the Lower School and a set of 25 mountain bikes at the Upper School to assist with cycling proficiency and an after school cycling club.
Support for Charity
The Children of Hondurus Trust (the Valley of the Angels Orphanage) receives our donations of old uniforms, along with outgrown black school shoes and other clothing and shoes. For more information visit www.chtrust.org.uk
To contact the PSA, please contact any committee member at the school gate, email us firstname.lastname@example.org or alternatively leave a note with Mrs Cullen at the Upper School or Mrs Christie at the Lower School. Also please look at our notice board for future events and information.

The ‘Nearly New’ Uniform shop provides a great source of low-cost Elms uniform and a way for parents to sell on uniform that no longer fits. The revenue is split between the parent and the PSA.
The shop is run a parent volunteers.
The Nearly New Shop will accept your clean items in good condition for sale. Items which are not in good enough condition for sale, or are not current uniform, will be donated to our chosen charity.
All items should be bagged and labelled, with a completed ‘Items For Sale Form’ enclosed inside the bag. There is no need to enter a price on the form as this will be completed by the Committee.
The price is set at half of the original purchase price or less, depending on the condition. If no label is present the items will be determined to be a donation to the PSA.
Labelled bags can be left at the shop during opening hours, with Gemma at the school gate, or alternatively they can be left at the Lower or Upper School reception.
