St Edmund's PA

Introduction to the PA

The PA is a registered charity created to raise money for our school and produce a positive social environment that encourages the school’s parents and children to get to know each other.

We consider the social aspect of the PA to be very important. Just as it is a part of a child’s education to interact with others in and out of school, it also helps if the parents are friends. Your children will spend seven years together at St Edmund’s and as they grow they will become good friends and spend more time together outside school. You will want to get to know the parents of your child’s friends, building mutual trust, to enable visits and spend time in other’s company.

The money that the PA raise, is used to benefit the children of St. Edmund’s to purchase items for the school beyond its own budget. Any money raised by the PA is used to fund items that are ‘nice to have’ and make your child’s stay in St Edmund’s even more pleasant. The more people we can get to be active on the PA the more funds we can raise.

In a nutshell you, as parents of St Edmund’s school children, are the Parents Association. When you and your family join St. Edmund’s school you automatically become a very welcome member of the PA.

We are an inclusive bunch and would love for new parents to become actively involved in the PA. This could mean helping out at events, promoting our events to the wider community, sharing your skills or simply making a donation. The PA are predominately concerned with raising much-needed funds for the children at St. Edmund’s, we are also about being sociable and inclusive. We hope that you and your family will be able to attend and support the many fun social events we put on throughout the year.

Recent purchases for our school have included an Early Years climbing frame, new reading books, ICT contributions, awnings and astro turf and the library bus to name but a few.

Rugby/Event Parking

St Edmund's is the right parking choice to ensure you have safe and secure parking for your vehicle. Before the event you can come early and visit one of the many local pubs or cafes in Whitton within a 5 minute walk. We recommend you book in advance to guarantee a space as we are normally fully booked for major events. Parking spaces are sometimes available on the day - on a first come, first served basis. Please bring your booking confirmation either printed or on your smartphone, thank you.

Our address for satellite navigation users is Nelson Rd, Twickenham TW2 7BB

Please note that we open 4 hours before advertised Kick Off (KO) time and that there is no facility to park before then.
