This website aims to provide information on all the activities of Busbridge Infant School's Parent Teachers Association (PTA) throughout the school year. We hope the contents will prove useful to parents and teachers as we organise our fund-raising events and distribute the funds to benefit pupils.
The PTA are always seeking volunteers to help with PTA activities, and welcome all parents and teachers at our termly PTA meetings. A list of dates and times can be found in Forthcoming Events. Further details about some of the activities can be found in the Events Diary.
About the PTA
The PTA is a voluntary independent organisation; the trustees are made up of an elected mixture of parents and teachers. All parents at the school are automatically members of the PTA. Its purpose is to support the school, augmenting the facilities provided by the Local Authority to advance the education of the children, through a strong partnership with the school itself. We do this by fostering close co-operation and communication among parents, staff and others associated with the school, extending our relationship and engaging in activities that support the school.
The PTA plays an important role within the school and local community, with activities centred on two key areas: fundraising and communication. It is also a forum for parents to raise suggestions, ideas and concerns relating to school matters.
If you would like further information regarding the PTA or have any feedback about the website, please contact any of the PTA committee. Alternatively, drop a note addressed to the PTA into the school office. We would also like to hear your fund-raising ideas and how the money might be spent.
A PayPal link has been established, where it is possible to donate directly to the PTA and at the same time secure an additional 25% gift aid contribution from the government.

We look forward to your support over the coming year.
