Budbrooke School Parent Teacher Association
Welcome back to a new school year everybody, and a very warm welcome to new parents joining the school. We are all set for an exciting year ahead and hope to continue to support the school and provide some moments of fun for the children.
You will have received a newsletter from us at the start of the year, which you’ll also find in the “Files To Download” section below. This is part of how we will look to keep you informed moving forwards. Our AGM will be held on 15th October from 5pm to 6pm in the School hall, and we would love to see you there. If you would like information about how to become a committee member or to stand for Chair, Secretary or Treasurer, details will be made available or you could just have a chat with one of us (I can often be found in The Open Door nursing a coffee). If you would rather email us, you can find the brand spanking new email address in the about section at the top of the page.
Remember, every parent at Budbrooke is automatically a member of the PTA, it is up to you how much you wish to be involved. We are a good crowd and what we do is fun and rewarding. We look forward to seeing everyone for The Christmas Fayre, school discos, next year's Fete and much, much more!

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.
The date of our Annual General Meeting will be Tuesday 15th October, from 17:00 – 18:00 in the Budbrooke School Hall. All Budbrooke PTA members are welcome to attend. If you would like to stand for a Committee Officer role, please send an email to the PTA ahead of the meeting. The minutes for the AGM will be added to this page for everyone to read, once they have been reviewed and approved by the Committee following the meeting. The roles and responsibilities for the Officer roles can be found below in the “Files to Download” section of this page.
