Broomfield House School Parent Teacher Association is very active and has three main functions:
- to form a link between parents and the school
- to organise social events for parents and their children
- to fundraise for specific equipment and events to benefit the children
The PTA Committee is made up of the Head, teachers and parent representatives from each class who are elected at our Annual General Meeting. The officer roles of Chair, Secretary and Treasurer are elected at the first committee meeting. Committee meetings are held once every half-term and all parents are welcome to attend even if they are not a Rep.
The PTA Reps liaise between parents and teachers and are a key part in helping to foster the strong community which Broomfield enjoys. They are responsible for class lists and communication to parents in their class, organising class parties and coffee mornings, helping out at PTA events and representing their class at the PTA meetings. Reps will often also assist on school photo days, class trips or other activities such as our very own cycling event, the Tour de Broomfield.
The PTA organises a number of fundraising and social events throughout the year. These include the themed Summer Fair, an exciting Christmas Market, a very popular annual parents’ social, a quiz night and the second-hand uniform sale.
The funds raised by the PTA finance visiting authors, speakers, musicians, theatre groups and specialist science days. We have helped to fund, amongst many other things, a new mini-bus, playground awnings to enable all-weather-play, sports kits, African drums, library books and playground equipment.
It is a great way to get to know the staff and other parents throughout the school and ultimately benefit your children. We are always grateful for new volunteers and fresh ideas so please do get involved.
