Rushey Green Parent/Carers support

Rushey Green School Association

RGSA is Rushey Green's parent teacher association. All parents and carers are automatically members when their child starts school and we are hoping for more parents and carers to become involved.RGSA has a long tradition of active involvement with the school arranging activities that have included: book fairs, cake sales, fêtes and various fund-raising events. The money raised is used to provide extras and special equipment for the children that would not be affordable from school finances due to the public government cuts to state funded education. The Association aims to engage with all families and our local community and embrace the cultural diversity to make our children’s learning experiences more fulfilling and exciting.

Mission Statement

  • We aim to develop effective relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school
  • Arrange events and activities that raise funds for equipment and projects in school to enhance the education of all pupils and any extra facilities needed
  • Organise social events for the enjoyment of the pupils, their families and the wider community. For example, we need volunteers for our summer fair. We need as many parents involved as possible, you do not need to give a lot of your time but anything you can do, however small would be much appreciated. It really is a case of ‘many hands make light work’. We’d love to hear from anyone who has any particular skills or knowledge they think would be useful or from anyone who has any ideas for events or fundraising ideas.
