Budbrooke School Parent Teacher Association
Welcome to the official PTA webpage, where you'll find the latest information about what's going on with the PTA and all the relevant files and meeting minutes. 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.
Every term we release a newsletter, which you'll find in the "files to download" section below. This gives you lots of useful information about what we've been doing and what we've got coming up. In the latest issue, a call went out asking for new volunteers to join the committee, as well as starting the search for a new Honorary Treasurer - we'll update you after Easter as to how successful we've been (hint: very successful!). If you'd like to join the committee or volunteer to support us in any way, please drop me an email, and we'll take it from there.
This Easter, we have a competition for the children to take part in. Simply design your own Easter egg using the form in th e"files to download" section below, pay £1 and hand it in to your teacher by 31st March to be in with a chance of winning an Easter egg. There will be a winner per class, and each winner will have their design featured in the entrance. All entrants will received a cadburys creme egg for entering the competition. So get out your felt tip pens, crayons, glitter or anything else hiding in your craft box, and see what you can create!

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. We hold Annual General Meetings towards the start of every Autumn term, with details of when and where shared at the start of the term. 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. If you would like to join the Committee, you can sign up on the night with no prior email required. 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 also be found below.
