Parents of Aldrington (PoA)

The ‘PoA’ is a very active parents association which holds several events over the year for pupils, parents and families, and raises substantial funds for school equipment and activities. It is a registered charity with the objective to “advance the education of the pupils of the school by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities for education at the school.” We normally meet once every half term and circulate minutes of meetings over email and on Facebook ( - if you have children at Aldrington please join!).


We are always looking for more help from committed parents with time, skills or resources to share. It could be wrapping Lucky Dip prizes, donating auction items, running the refreshments table at a school play, getting a good deal on sports kit, or dressing up as the Easter Bunny (shhh – don’t tell the children!). Many hands make light work, so if you can help out in any way please email us on
