New parents’ association committee needed after October 2013

Stopfordian Parents' Association

The current SPA committee comes to the end of its three year term in October 2013, and we’re looking for volunteers for a number of roles.

The SPA consists of the five committee officials plus a council of 11 members. The committee is the driving force behind planned activities, while the council members have voting powers and, along with many other parents, provide the very welcome support to deliver the events. The amount of time given is completely dependent on the amount of time an individual can give.

The committee is made up of five official roles – all of these roles will be vacant in October and the current committee is committed to providing a thorough handover. Without a new committee the SPA will not be able to function and the valuable work done to raise funds, for the benefit all of our children and external charities, along with the various social events organised will halt.

We need volunteers for the following roles:


Provides leadership for the SPA, liaises with the school (heads/bursar/governors/external relations) to further the SPA aims, leads AGM and other meetings.
