The school is fortunate in having an active and supportive Parent-Teacher & Friends Association.
Keep up to date on events and ‘Like’ us on Facebook.
The Brooke School Parent, Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA) was constituted in 2007 and is a registered charity. As set out in its Constitution, the role of the PTFA is to help advance the education of pupils in the school through the organisation of fund-raising activities that support the school.
As the name suggests, members of the PTFA can include; parents, guardians, carers of pupils attending the school, friends of the school, and members of the teaching and non-teaching staff currently employed by the school. The head teacher is also an ex-officio member of the PTFA.
An Annual General Meeting takes place in September each year where a Chairperson, a Secretary and a Treasurer are nominated and appointed together with any co-opted members. All PTFA members give their time freely for the benefit of the school.
PTFA meetings take place at least once a term, usually at the Kings Head in Brooke. Sub-groups are also used to plan and organise the various fund-raising events during the year.
There are a number of ways the PTFA communicates with parents. We have an email distribution list of active PTFA members i.e. those who are willing to give their time, input into events and help run them. Any willing volunteer can add their name to this list by contacting the PTFA Secretary who maintains the email group. We update all parents about what is happening through the weekly school ‘Brooke Report’ bulletin too and we also have a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BrookePTFA). Finally, there is a PTFA comments book in the school reception where anyone can leave messages or suggestions for us.
We try to organise at least one fund-raiser every term. Past events have included: Build-a-Guy Competitions, Summer Barbeques, Family Bike Rides, Easter Egg Hunts, Strawberry Teas, Christmas Fayres and much more.
The current appointed members are:
Chairperson: Kate Barmby (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Secretary: Katharine Danks (email@example.com)
Treasurer: Louise Banning (firstname.lastname@example.org)
