Budbrooke School Parent Teacher Association
CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!
It feels like we say that earlier each year, but with Halloween out of the way we've been making preparations for events and initiatives for the festive season. Hot off the heels of the spooky spoon competition held at the end of October, we're not looking to organise for Christmas art gifts featuring the artwork of your children. There is a form at the bottom of this page that you can print out, your child can create an artful masterpiece, and then bring the form along with the ticked selection and money (cash or cheque made payable to Budbrooke School PTA) into the school by Wednesday 24th November. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me by email, or reach out via our Facebook page.
We'll be updating this website with more details of what's happening throughout the year, so please remember to come back and check what's going on. We'll also continue to publish news and information via the school weekly newsletter.

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 email@example.com. There are lots of ways that people can contribute to the work that we do.
We hold a committee meeting on the first Thursday of every month. This is currently via MS Teams video conference due to the current situation. The next one will take place on Thursday 2nd December 2021.
