Parent Staff Association - PSA

Who we are:

The Marshgate Parents Staff Association (PSA) was entered on the Register of Charities in March 2004. All parents, carers and staff are members of our PSA and have voting rights. The objective of the PSA is to advance and enhance the education of the pupils in Marshgate Primary School and to improve relations between staff at the school, parents and the community. Without limitation the PSA may:

(a) raise funds for curricular and non-curricular activities and resources;

(b) organise social events amongst the members; and

(c) provide a point of contact between parents and staff as required


As a group we want to welcome our new members and help them settle in, and to assist those who need it. We aim to support our school with our ideas, enthusiasm, abilities and skills and, of course, with fundraising.


How you can help and why your help is needed!

The funds raised by the PSA for the school, provide much needed supplemental finance for the school.


In 2017-18 academic year we are raising money to help fund the following activities and school enhancements:

  • A Visualiser for each class. A Visualiser is a powerful digital camera device that enables teachers to display objects, documents, pictures etc. with superb clarity
  • Lighting for the outdoor sport’s courts/playground
  • Portable playground games e.g. Jenga, Connect 4 and Lego


These are all items which, we are sure you will agree, will enrich our children’s time at Marshgate. Without your help and support, we would not be able to achieve our goals!


The PSA here at Marshgate relies on the goodwill and generosity our parents and carers. Throughout the year we will regularly ask for donations and volunteers to support our fundraising efforts!


There are of course many other ways in which you could help.


You will see that we hold many events throughout the year including:


  • Bingo and quiz nights
  • Bake Sales
  • Winter Party for adults
  • Film nights for the children
  • Winter Fayre
  • And of course our main event…..the Summer Fair!


In addition to this we create, with the children’s help, keepsake items and memorabilia such as calendars and tea towels.


We always welcome new ideas and suggestions and encourage this from all parents and carers.


In addition, if you feel that you have a particular skill or talent that you think could help us in any of events or fundraising activities then please let us know.


Please do come along to a meeting and share your ideas, email your class rep or any of the committee members whenever you have five minutes, or catch us on the playground. It will be a pleasure to hear from you or to meet you. Please contact us on our email which is
