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 supported our Summer Fair.  What a fantastic evening - raising an amazing £3400!

All set up ready for our Summer Fair to start!

The children at Kidgate were very excited when a very special person came to visit them today!  He delivered a sack of presents to each classroom and all the children were given a gift to take home.

A very special visitor comes to Kidgate

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.
