Embley Parents’ Association
Embley Parents’ Association is a team of parents and members of staff that help bring our school community together to have fun and fundraise through popular social events such as Fireworks’ Night, the Prep School Easter Egg Hunt and Summer Party. All parents and staff are members of the Parents’ Association and are welcome to get involved and attend as many meetings and events as they wish.
Each year group has a parent representative who organises year-specific social gatherings and represents those parents who are unable to attend the Embley Parents’ Association general meetings.
Parents’ Association Shop
Parent volunteers also run the Parents’ Association shop which sells secondhand uniform and is open during term time on Monday mornings (08:10 – 09:10) and Tuesdays to Friday afternoons (15:00 – 16:00). It is located by the Senior School car park and also stocks new socks, ties and gum shields as well as sample sizes of uniform for children to try.
Parent year representative
Parent year representatives are the voice of all the parents in their year groups and are relied upon by the EPA to help organise volunteers, publicise and support events. Ideally parent year reps are expected to attend at least three meetings in the year to put forward the views of each year group, parents for events and funding requests and also to report back the decisions and workings of the EPA meetings through the minutes.
Embley Parents’ Association hold several meetings a year, including an AGM. All parents are welcome. Dates for 2020/21 meetings are as follows:
Thursday 12 November 2020 (18:30)
Tuesday 26 January 2021 (18:30)
Thursday 11 March 2021 (08:30)
Wednesday 19 May 2021 (18:30)
Tuesday 8 June 2021 (08:30)
