Embley Parents’ Association
Embley Parents’ Association (EPA) (Registered Charity No. 1179033) 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.
Embley Parents’ Association hold several meetings a year, including an AGM. All parents are welcome.
Parents’ Association Shop
Parent volunteers from Embley Parents’ Association run the shop which sells secondhand uniform and is open during term time on Monday and Friday mornings (08:10 – 09:10) and Tuesdays to Thursday afternoons (15:00 – 16:00). The shop is located by the Senior School car park and also stocks new socks, ties and gum shields and it has 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.
The EPA has an AmazonSmile account to help raise funds. When you shop at Amazon, log in via Amazon Smile and select ‘Embley Parents Association’ as your charity. You will find the same prices, selection and shopping experience but with the added bonus that AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price to the EPA.
