SSA – School Association

Selside School Association is a registered charity formed of parents and friends of the school who offer support by organising fundraising events to fund essential items to enhance the children’s learning.

The SSA have proudly funded the following along with other School essentials in 2022:

  • Transport for all year groups to watch Sleeping Beauty
  • ‘The Weekly Magazine’ – a children’s current affairs newspaper
  • The sponsor of a child in an under privileged country via Action Aid

Looking forward into 2023, plans are in place to fund redevelopment of the school field and surrounding areas to enhance the children’s outdoor learning.  Plans include rewilding the area, rebuild of the bird hide and new outdoor learning facilities.

Funds have previously been raised as a result of some fantastic SSA events including:

  • An organised Family Camp out enjoyed by friends of the school every summer
  • The SSA Summer Ball which was a huge hit in June 2022
  • A lovely Christmas Fair attended by the Selside community annually
  • ‘Potter The Fell’ which was completed by Friends of the School and the local community
