What is CSSG?
The Chawton School Support Group is the school’s PTA, created to raise much needed funds to support whole-school activity and to host fun and engaging events for the children and their families. We host a range of events throughout the year such as discos, cakes sales, quiz nights, second hand uniform sales, challenges and much more.
We are incredibly proud of our links and involvement with the broader Chawton community, such as the Chawton Village Fireworks and close relationships with both Jane Austen and Chawton House. As a supportive and inclusive school community we are fortunate to have a vibrant network of support from our families to help evolve the experience and opportunities for our children.
The children have an active role in supporting the CSSG, helping to get involved with events, ideas, how and where to spend funds raised helping to develop their team collaboration abilities, communication skills and most importantly to empower them to share their views and be part of evolving and supporting their school.
We take great pride in ensuring the children have fun whilst raising funds for the school and without the generosity of every member of the school community, from buying raffle tickets, supporting events, running stalls at one of the fayres and volunteering time and support it simply would not be possible. Every contribution or donation directly impacts and makes a difference to the children here at Chawton and we are unbelievably proud to be part of it.
The CSSG Committee
The CSSG committee is made up of a fabulous bunch of parent volunteers who all have children at the school. We meet throughout the year at The Greyfriars’s in Chawton – it is very informal and a wonderful inclusive and supportive team. We also have a great team of class reps from each year group who work closely with the CSSG committee to help share news, event details and rally up support to help run the events throughout the year.
We are always looking to welcome new members to the committee and if you would like to get involved then do get in touch and say hello at the upcoming events, meetings and join ClassList.
Ticket Payments and Donations for Events
All payments for events is done via ClassList, an app which is quick and easy to get tickets or make donations. You can sign up here: https://classlist.page.link/szcSiJ6KrTiQvDcU7
We arrange a year-round programme of events for the enjoyment of pupils, their families and carers, from cake sales and school discos, to summer and Christmas fayres.
Every parent,or carer, of a child in school automatically becomes part of the CSSG community; and the year’s programme is coordinated by a small, friendly and enthusiastic committee of parent-volunteers.
There is always room for more – more donations, more ideas, more volunteers.
