As a parent or guardian of a pupil at Rayne School, you automatically become a member of the Parent Staff Association.  An AGM is held each September to elect a committee and make plans for the coming year’s events – usually a wide variety of functions which seek to bring families and school together as well as to raise funds.  The P.S.A. aims to do all it can to further the education of our children and they deserve all our support.

Money raised by the P.S.A. pays for many extra things we would otherwise be unable to afford, as well as giving support to outings and entertainment.

In its time the PSA has raised thousands of pounds. This money has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our childrens educational experiences and the school facilities.  

All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available. Donations from Parents and Friends are extremely important to us; you can donate time, money, items for sale, raffle prizes or by offering up your services and skills.

We are a small and friendly team and we try to meet on a regular basis, usually one a month.

We hold several events throughout the year ranging from Cake Sales, Christmas Events, School Discos and the annual Summer and Christmas Fetes. We are always open to new ideas and would love to hear from you if you have any suggestions.

In the last few years we have donated a new projector and hall equipment, a mud kitchen for EYFS, a jungle gym, a sand pit, bean bags, KS1 and KS2 dictionaries, activity tables and benches.  We always endeavour to spend the funds in ways that will benefit children across all areas of the school and curriculum.

Many thanks for all your support, we really do appreciate it.

Rayne PSA Christmas Fete

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who attended, supported and volunteered at the Rayne PSA Christmas Fete on Saturday 30th November.

It was a wonderfully festive afternoon, full of community spirit. 117 children had a train ride courtesy of Braintree Lions and visited Father Christmas in the Winter Wonderland Grotto.

There were lots of festive games, a Grand Prize Draw, Christmas food and treats were enjoyed, there were a host of shopping stalls and craft activities. A fantastic afternoon enjoyed by all.

An absolutely amazing £3,300 was raised!!

Thank you one and all!

How we help?

APRIL 2019

We were delighted that the brand new outdoor classroom was unveiled recently. A fantastic added resource which will be used by the whole school for lessons outside and will also provide shade during play and lunchtimes. Well done to everyone who worked hard to fundraise for this beautiful structure.



Thanks to a wonderful donation from local restaurant 47 The Street, Rayne we were able to purchase a new portable cooking trolley which can be used by the whole school. This will make cooking and baking much easier and aid the children in learning new life skills.


KS2 Books

Due to the fantastic support we have received at recent events the PSA have been able to donate some brand new books to the KS2 library.

Development of Outside Space

The PSA have recently donated and volunteered their time to develop the outside space in both KS1 & KS2 for the children to use at break times and lunch times.  Bean bags, a lego table, books, wooden play & learning benches and a sandpit have been provided and built by the PSA to provide a relaxing area with activities for the children to enjoy.

PSA volunteers also donated their time to paint the pergola and provide beautiful planters which are being looked after by some of the children.
