Welcome to the Kibworth Parent Association
Welcome to the Kibworth Parent Association
The KPA is Kibworth Primary School’s Parents Association – we’re a team of volunteer parents, carers and teachers who help raise funds to enrich our children’s learning experience and support the superb work of the school.
Our fundraising is becoming increasingly vital to supplement ever-declining school budgets, and since its inception the KPAhas raised literally thousands of pounds, which have been spent on replacing and improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and the facilities in school in general. Since May 2015 funds raised by the KPA have been invested in the amazing Rainforest Library and new books, new furniture in Foundation Stage and chairs for the ICT suite, PE clothing and school refurbishment.
If you’d like to get more involved, meet other parents, have a say in how we spend the funds, or have some great fundraising ideas to share, why not come to a KPA meeting? We usually meet every 4-6 weeks, on Mondays at 7pm in the school staff room. Whether you can only come to the occasional meeting to chip in your ideas, or would like to have a ‘formal’ role on the committee, you’re always very welcome! We are particularly keen for new parents to join us so please do come along if you can.
Thank you to all our children, parents, school staff and local businesses who support our events and activities - we couldn’t do it without you! The KPA team

Meetings and Events
Our current committee comprises parents, grandparents, past parents and teachers and we are looking forward to welcoming more members in the future. We also have parents, carers, friends and staff who regularly help at events or give their time and talent throughout the year as they are able.

Here are details of two very simple schemes that you can be part of throughout the year, raising regular funds for the school with very little effort at all:
Use a Sainsbury's Card
If you or your friends and family buy groceries in store at Sainsbury’s (anywhere in the UK) please consider using one of our Sainsbury’s cards. You can sign up at any time of year and it takes just a few minutes to set up and earns regular £s for the school every month at absolutely no cost to you. Simply fill in a short form (available from the school office), arrange a monthly standing order from your bank account to the ‘Kibworth Parents Association’. Account average is around £50-150 per month, but you can do any amount you choose, and we upload the full amount to your Sainsbury’s card each month, which you can then spend in store, just like cash, whenever you wish to. S Sainsbury’s then give us around 4% of all spend back again so if you spend £100 per month, that’s a regular donation of £4 per month to the school. And anyone can have one, not just parents, so why not ask your friends, grandparents, wider family and colleagues to also sign up?
