The purpose of the BSA is to nurture the community spirit of our school and to raise funds.

What does the BSA do?

We organise events such as the summer fair, school discos and Christmas fair as well as sales of items (edible or otherwise). These events have the aim of either fundraising or promoting ‘school spirit’ or more usually, both.


We coordinate a class rep system to act as a liaison between teachers and parents for classwide issues and to encourage a community feel amongst class parents.


We spend money raised to provide those little (or sometimes big) extras that can make the children’s experience of school really enriching and rewarding.

Who are the BSA?

The Basildon School Association (BSA) is the parent-teacher association group at the school. All parents and teachers at the school are part of the BSA and it is totally up to you how much you get involved – we are always grateful for any level of support!

The BSA is a charity and has three trustees, a Chair, Treasurer and Secretary. We also have a committee of interested parents who volunteer as and when they can throughout the year.
