Welcome to the Southcott School Association (SSA), a fundraising group available for all parents and teachers of pupils at Southcott Lower School.
The Southcott School Association raises funds for the benefit of the children at Southcott and brings together children, staff and parents in a social and fun environment.
After a successful AGM in October, your SSA committee is gearing up to deliver a full programme of events for the year ahead. Our aim is to provide fun, exciting opportunities for all Southcott children and their families, to bring together the school community and to raise vital funds to support the school.
Thanks to your generous support we smashed our £10,000 income target last year, and this year we have set the ambitious goal of raising £12,000. The money we raise goes towards a wide variety of enrichment activities at Southcott such as Forest School, the panto, the annual SingUp! event and more.
How to support the SSA
The easiest way to support our fundraising efforts is to buy tickets and attend our events. To help people plan ahead, here is a list of all our planned activities so far.
Further information about future events will be released in due course but in the meantime...

Your SSA needs you!
There are two ways to get involved and support the SSA to be as successful as possible. Firstly, we are actively recruiting for new committee members to help with the planning and organisation of events. The meetings for this term are listed below; as you can see the time commitment isn’t huge and everyone is always welcome. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more, or feel free to just come along.
Upcoming meetings will be held at The Hare in Linslade at 8pm on
Tuesday 4th November
Tuesday 28th November
We also rely heavily on parents (and grandparents!) as event volunteers, so if you want to help out without necessarily being on the committee this is for you! This can involve anything from helping out at a school disco to decorating the grotto to wrapping tombola prizes in the evening at home. ALL help is sincerely appreciated and much needed, so if you are happy to be added to the list of possible event volunteers, please email email@example.com and let us know.
Contacting the SSA
There are a number of ways that you can contact us with any questions or ideas that you want to pass to the committee members. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, give your details to the office staff or place a note with your details in the brown box, next to the door in the school reception area, or catch one of the committee members in the playground. We’d love to hear from you.
