St James CE Primary School

St James School Association (SJSA)

Who are we?

Every parent and staff member of the school automatically becomes part of our School Association. We are a registered charity, with the purpose of raising funds to support the education of the children at Saint James. A small group of parents and teachers meet regularly to organise events and activities that raise money for the school.

How do we raise money?

We run Christmas and Summer Fairs, Discos, Film Nights, Easter Hunts, Bingo and Quiz nights, a School Lottery and more!

We also use cashback schemes including easy fund raising and textile recycling, we use local sponsorship and sell second hand uniform.

What do we spend the money on?

In the past we have paid for scooter shelters, a pirate ship play area, outdoor play equipment, school laptops and a vast range of extra learning resources for the children.

We are currently fundraising to purchase some fantastic new playground equipment for the children!
