Welcome to KESA!

If your child is at our school, you are automatically a member of the Kidmore End School Association of parents, teachers and governors. We are a very friendly and active group, who organise fun social events throughout the year that raise much-needed funds for our school.  Last year, we were fortunate to be supported by Sonning Common Co-op, adding nearly £4000 to our fundraising!  

Our Committee

Our committee consists of volunteers voted in at the AGM but we always appreciate any time you can spare and invite you to get involved in any way you would like, whether this is taking on a specific role in the committee, replying to an email request from us or just enjoying the events that we organise! If you would like to find out more, please email kesachair@hotmail.co.uk or speak to one of our current committee members.

Current committee members: 

  • Co-chairs – Amy Collier & Vicky Jones
  • Treasurer: Catherine Hodges 
  • Secretary: Lucy Shah
  • Committee members: Colleen Paviour, Hannah Johnstone, Tara Gibbon, Clare Wright

We are always keen to hear new ideas for fund-raising events.

To mark Outdoor Classroom Day KESA funded a kite for each child, to enjoy the outdoors. It was a glorious sunny day.  The children ran around the field accompanied by music ‘Let’s go fly a kite’

KESA funded School Council’s Healthy Snack Taster Session, initiated by the children to encourage all to choose healthier snacks

One of our main fundraising events is the Christmas Fair, where we come together as a school community with the local Kidmore End community to kick off Christmas celebrations
