The PTA raised over £5,000 last year which is fantastic, thank you to everyone who baked cakes, helped on a stall or came to an event. Last year, PTA funds provided each class with £250 to subsidise trips, which we will do again this year, reducing the cost to parents. The PTA also funded the Year 6 Leavers’ books and Brambles Leavers’ bags, which we have again pledged to do this year.
We are looking for people who would like to be involved but maybe don’t have time for an ongoing role, to volunteer to organise or help plan a one-off event such as a Cake Friday; if you could help then please get in touch, our email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, our Facebook page is a great way to keep up to date or get in contact so please join the group; search Brampton PTA (Brampton Village School Parent Teacher Association) or the link is here:
Planned events for your calendar are:
Cake Friday 11th October
Christmas Fair 6th December
Our next meeting is on the 18th October at 2.00pm. This meeting we will be planning for our fantastic Christmas fair we have at the school.
Brampton School PTA needs your help!
Can you imagine having NO school discos, NO school fetes, NO santas grotto?! Without the PTA none of this would happen which is why we need your help.
As parents, you are AUTOMATICALLY a member of the PTA – your voice counts. Your involvement can not only help the school provide fun extra-curricular activities but also vital equipment and resources - did you know that the money raised by the PTA has funded new books, computers, play equipment, sound systems, projectors, music players, hand chimes, sports clothing, year 6 leavers books and we also subsidise many school trips.
You are vital to the success of the school
The PTA is a mixture of parents and carers (dads are included too!) that work together for the benefit of the school, some of us are full time parents and some of us work, NONE of us are specialists in fundraising. The PTA depends on a continual cycle of parental involvement and as the children leave, so do their parents. Taking an active role with the PTA is critical for our childrens’ success.
How you can help
There are a variety of ways you can help and be involved - attending meetings, helping to plan events, suggesting new fun ways to raise funds, helping out on the day of an event with setting up/clearing away, running a stall etc.
Obviously the more people we have to help the easier it is for everyone and responsibilities can be shared out fairly rather than relying on just a handful of dedicated parents. Donating just 30 mins of your time to the PTA is invaluable.
Meetings are alternated between day time and evening to ensure they are accessible to all. If you cannot attend meetings you can still be added to our distribution list and give ideas, comments and offers of help via email.
Do you work for a company that might be able to donate a raffle prize for our fayres? Do you work for a company that has a match giving scheme for employees such as a bank or a building society?
You will feel more connected and part of a great network
Do you want to be the first to know what events are being planned and when? There is no better way than by offering your help and support. It is also a good opportunity to meet other like-minded parents who share a common goal of enhancing the experience of all the children in our school.
By getting involved, your children will see you playing an active part in their education and demonstrating good teamwork and community spirit.
The funds raised by the PTA for equipment and resources help to enhance our children’s learning. The events we run will be fondly remembered by our children for a lifetime. Help us to continue to create lasting happy memories for our children by offering your time and support to the PTA.
If you are able to help/join the PTA, have any comments or feedback or would like any further information about the PTA please contact BramptonPTA@outlook.com
If you can spare a little time and help the PTA raise the vital funds needed to make the above happen, then please come along to our next meeting and find out a little more. Alternatively, please email BramptonPTA@outlook.com or see our Facebook page.
