Kidgate Primary Academy

Home School Association (HSA)


What is the HSA?

The HSA is a group of parents and staff members who organise events such as the Summer Fair, Bingo evenings and School Discos in order to raise funds to be used on projects or opportunities, supplementary to the curriculum, designed to benefit the children and enhance their whole school experiences.  It is made up of a combined group of staff and parents; some with committee roles, and others with member roles. Your generosity in supporting the HSA events contributes to your child's experience within the school.

Many thanks to everyone who came along to support our Easter Bingo and to those who

helped by donating prizes.

The event was very well attended and we raised a fantastic £433 - a fun evening was had by all.

The sound of sleigh bells announced the arrival of our very special guest, Santa Claus, Accompanied by Mr Lidbury, he visited the children in their classrooms during their party afternoon to deliver them with a gift.

Was lovely to see such excitement and so many smiles.


Christmas Bingo a huge success!

A huge thank you to everybody that came and made last night’s Bingo event such a success.  With the tree up, and Christmas music playing, the event had a real festive feel and it was so lovely that so many people turned out to join us. Thanks to your very generous donations last week on non-uniform day, we made £520 profit – this will help us enrich school life for all the children at Kidgate.
