About

  • Funded By The CSA

 

When your child starts at Cassiobury in the Nursery, Infant or Junior School, you automatically become a member of the Cassiobury Schools Association. There is no subscription fee and it is entirely up to you to decide how much you want to get involved.

We are the Parent Teacher Association for both schools. Our aims are to create a friendly, strong school community by organising fun activities for children and parents.

Through the money we raise, we fund projects for both schools such as white boards, computers, playground extensions and outdoor equipment that would not otherwise be in the schools’ budget.

There is usually a committee of 16 members plus 8 co-opted members that organise and plan fundraising and social events during school year. We always welcome more parents to come along and help on the committee. We meet once a month in the evening, along with the heads of both schools, to plan and discuss events and where the funds should be spent. Why not come along just to see how it works?

Getting Involved

 

There are lots of ways you can support and help your child through the CSA:

Become involved with the committee

  • Volunteer to be a committee member. You can find out more about what the different roles on the committee do here.
  • Pop along to any of our committee meetings. Dates can be found here.
  • Come along and support the AGM and give us your ideas for fundraising events. Find the date of the next AGM here.

Helping Out

Offering to help before, during or after events. It doesn’t matter if you can’t help on a regular basis, or even if you cant come into school. There are always little jobs that can be done from home if you have half an hour to spare,  e.g. Wrapping gifts, preparing raffle tickets.  Please contact us and let us know what help your able to give. We really appreciate any contribution, however big or small. The more people we have helping, the easier events are to organise and run and the more successful they will be.

We need you!

If you have any contacts or skills we could use – everything is potentially valuable to us. For example, use of a van, links to companies/ people who might be able to donate raffle prizes, skills you could transfer from your work to helping the committee.
If you’re keen to run your own idea or event then please also review our Events Checklist
