Budbrooke School Parent Teacher Association
Welcome to the new year of Budbrooke Primary School, and the beginning of a new PTA. We've got some amazing events lined up to help us raise money for many wonderful events and opportunities for the children this year.
Annual General Meeting in September
Our Annual General Meeting will take place on Monday 26th September at 20:00 for approximately 90 minutes. This will be our opportunity to recap on the year gone by - the fund raising we've done and the money we've spent, elect the new committee, and talk about the upcoming events and things we would like to raise money for. The AGM is open to all parents and teachers of Budbrooke School, and we'd love as many of you as possible to join us. We will also be looking for new PTA committee members to join the team, so if you can spare a little bit of time, would like to make some new friends, get involved more closely with the school and help raise money to spend on some brilliant things, please come along to the meeting!
Second Hand Uniform
If you're interested in purchasing any of the second hand uniform, please take a look at our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BudbrookeSchoolPTA) to see what we have currently available. Please also get in contact if you have any uniform you'd like to donate to us.
I just wanted to say thank you to all of you in advance for supporting the PTA this year. We've raised a lot of money in the past and as a result we've been able to pay for all sorts of experiences and equipment to enhance the children's lives, and we can't wait to continue this great work.

Budbrooke PTA Information
Parents/Carers of current pupils and teachers are automatically members of Budbrooke PTA. In addition, other members of the community who have an interest in the school (e.g. grandparents) are also welcome to join. The vast majority of members contribute in some way towards the PTA, including supporting by volunteering at or attending events and donating items.
Budbrooke PTA is a registered charity run by a committee. The Committee Officers includes a chair, vice chair, treasurer and secretary. The chair, treasurer and secretary also act as trustees for the charity. All of these positions are elected on an annual basis at the Annual General Meeting, which is held at the start of each academic year. Anyone who is a member of Budbrooke PTA is able to stand for these positions. PTA members can also volunteer to become Committee Members, who work with the Officers and volunteers to prepare, set up and run the various events and activities during the year.
Budbrooke PTA’s aim is to improve the experience of all the children who attend Budbrooke School by providing ‘WOW’ moments. This is achieved in two ways:
- Organising events for all of the children to enjoy, for example school discos and fetes that will provide memories for both children and parents.
- Fundraising so that we are able to support the school with added extras that are not covered directly by school funds.
There are regular meetings to agree, plan and organise events. These meetings are open to everyone, and the dates will be published on this page. If you wish to get in contact with the PTA Committee Officers or Members, please come and find us in the playground before/after school or email firstname.lastname@example.org. There are lots of ways that people can contribute to the work that we do.
We hold a committee meeting on the first Monday of every month. This is currently via MS Teams video conference. If you would like to know when the next meeting will be taking place, please get in contact.
