Welcome to the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) area of the website. We hope this will give you a good understanding of what the PTA does, what we have planned in the coming year and how these activities generate very well received funds for the school. Perhaps we may even convince you to get involved.
What is the PTA?
The PTA is essentially a fundraising organisation whose sole aim is to raise funds to support the pupils of Broadoak School. It is made up of a small committee of teachers and parents who work together.
What does the PTA do?
Throughout the year, the PTA plan and run a number of events aimed at raising funds for the school.
Our aim is to raise between £10,000 and £20,000 per year for the school. All the money raised is used to improve facilities or enhance the curriculum for the schools children. Decisions around how the money raised is distributed are made in collaboration between the PTA members and teaching staff.
A schedule of events are planned at the start of the academic year. Letters will then be sent out ahead of events asking for volunteers. If you can spare time, please volunteer as without this support, the running of events can become challenging.
