Parent Staff Association

Welcome to the Bishops Down PSA community (registered charity no:  1044070)

Hello and welcome to the Bishops Down PSA community. The Bishops Down PSA is the registered charity that fundraises for Bishops Down Primary and Nursery School. All parents, teachers and staff of Bishops Down automatically become members of the PSA when they join the school. This means that we have a fabulous community that love the school and want to see it thrive and enrich the lives of all our children. 

 You can email us on:

Thanks to your help, the money raised through the PSA has had a massive impact on the resources Bishops Down Primary and Nursery School is able to offer its students. And it has enriched the experiences and opportunities available to all pupils. We are grateful for every donation we receive, every fundraising activity that is undertaken and every volunteer at an event.

In the past we have contributed so much to the school from new iPads and laptops to a brand new library. This is an amazing achievement and should be celebrated. So thank you for everything that you have done to help the PSA have such an impact on Bishops Down Primary and Nursery School. We really couldn’t do this without you.

Why should I help?

The PSA is a very friendly community and we would love to have more parents or guardians help us in any way that they feel they can. By joining the PSA you will be giving back to our wonderful school. You will also be able to connect with other parents and teachers, be the first to know about new fundraising initiatives and become a role model for our school and your children. Participating in the PSA community is also great fun and a brilliant way to meet other parents and guardians.

Simple ways to help

There are also many other simple ways that you can help our community raise much-needed funds for the school. You will find a number of these below.

Stikins School Uniform Labels

We have teamed up with name labels Stikins to help us fundraise and to help you make sure that your children’s clothes are properly labelled. Stikins produce stick-on name labels that can be easily placed on the wash-care label of clothing. They can also be used on shoes, lunch boxes and other personal items.

For each packet of name labels sold, we will earn a 30% commission from the sale. So this is a really easy way to raise money for our school. All you need to do to order your name labels is visit the Stikins website or call 01270 668076 to order over the phone and quote the school reference number: 36216. Please note that we will only earn a commission if the school reference number (36216) is quoted.
