Welcome to Athelstan Community Primary School

Who are we and what do we do?

The Athelstan Parents' and Supporters' Association (APSA) are a group of parents, school staff and people from the local community. The group’s main aim is to raise funds to buy ‘little extras’ for school. Funds are raised in a variety of ways e.g. through events such as discos, family night, pamper evenings, Christmas fair, etc. The Friends also meet to consider requests for funds from staff and pupils. The Friends give up their valuable time but always do their best, often under difficult circumstances to make a difference to the children at school.
