Welcome to the Sussex Road School Association Page
We are a group of parents and teachers who give up some of our time, as and when we can, to help raise money for the School.
The aim of the Association is to advance the education of the pupils by providing, or assisting in the provision of, facilities for the School. We also work to extend the relationship between Staff, parents and others associated with the School and engage in activities which support the School and advance the education of pupils attending it.
PTA events are planned by an enthusiastic Committee of about fifteen parents (but we would like more!) who meet approximately once a month during term time. We also have 'Friends of the SRSA' for parents who do not have the time to attend the regular meetings but still like to help out at occasional events. If you are interested in finding out more, please ask a Committee member.
Current Committee: Chair: Kelly Flower, Vice Chair: Ness Moon Treasurer: Lisa Timbers, Secretary Karyn Brannigan. Committee members: Emma Gill, Becky Jones, Justine Glover, Monique Lavers, Josephine Sinclair, Emma Newstead, Clare Grubb, Kim Roberts President: Sarah Bowles Teacher rep: Cerys Stoneman Governor rep: Louisa Rowlands
There are many good reasons to get involved with the SRSA, the obvious one being to help raise funds for the school and the pupils. However, there are lots of other benefits and reasons to be a SRSA member or friend. You can: learn more about school life and how the school works, you can be a part of teachers and parents working together for the school and it’s future while making lots of new friends.
We hold meetings once a month, generally on a Tuesday evening. Attending meetings is not compulsory but a really good way to mix with other committee members and find out what is going on. Agendas and Minutes are sent out by email to all members after the meetings. They are also published on this website for everyone to read and keep up to date, should they wish to. Our meetings are good fun, light hearted but do follow an agenda to ensure we cover all necessary items.

KS1 & KS2 Spring discos were hosted by DJ Vicky! They were a great success and all attendees had a lovely time.
