Welcome to our website!
This website aims to provide information on all the activities of Busbridge Infant School's Parent Teachers Association (PTA) throughout the school year.
About the PTA
The PTA is a voluntary independent charitable 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, acting as a bridge for information between the school, teachers and parents and to enhance 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 serves to keep the flow of information between the school, teachers and parents and is responsible for organising fundraising events throughout the year to raise much-needed funds for the school to enhance the education our children receive.
Who is the PTA committee?
The Committee consists of the Head teacher, Chairperson/s, Vice-Chair person/s, Secretaries, Treasurer and Class representatives – usually 2 from each class.
What do the Class Representatives (Reps) do?
Your Rep provides a vital link between the school, class teachers and PTA. They are responsible for sending out weekly communication to the class about upcoming events (via Classlist) and organising termly social events for the parents as well as at least one fundraising event during the year. They can also pass questions and concerns back to staff. It is a role that is highly valued by parents and carers - school life can get very busy and these reminders help to keep us all on track!
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 fundraising ideas and how the money might be spent.
The PayPal link below makes it 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.
