Broomgrove Schools’ Parent-Teacher Association

 

Broomgrove Schools' Association (BSA) is the parent/teacher fundraising body for Broomgrove Infant and Junior Schools. The primary role of the BSA is to fund the maintenance of the school swimming pool and help with funding swimming lessons for all children. A further aim is to raise additional funds to benefit the children in other ways, including supplementing excursions, curriculum experiences, books and equipment, outdoor play and sporting equipment.

 

Every parent and carer with a child at Broomgrove School is automatically a member of the BSA; this means that everyone has the automatic right to vote at our AGM each year.

 

Who are we?

We have five core roles for parents/carers to take each year with additional roles on the committee for the Headteachers of each school,

 

Chair: Marisa Brennan
Vice Chair Infants: Emma Lake

Vice Chair Juniors: Stacey Street

Treasurer: Mairgheard Sharpe

Secretary: Claire McCourt

Instagram - we have recently created an account on Instagram. The account will give notice for all our events but will also celebrate the work done by the BSA. Follow us at broomgroveschools

 

What do we do?

It costs at least £6000 to keep the pool running each year, so we cannot possibly achieve this without your help and support.

 

Traditionally, every academic year, we organise three main events:

  • Boomgrove Fireworks Night (on the Friday closest to 5th November) to which the whole community are invited.
  • Easter Egg Hunt
  • Summer Fair (on the first Friday in July

 

We also fundraise across the year and these events include:

  • clothes/textiles collections
  • second-hand uniform sales
  • cake bake sales
  • quizzes
  • design your own Christmas cards

 

Our fundraising has been affected in 2020 due to the onset of the pandemic but we are determined to make the most of online forums, home and community based events in 2021

 

How can you help us?

Our aim for 2021 is to show our support to all families in these extremely difficult days, to bring  a little bit of excitement to your days and to help build the community feel that we will all benefit from, especially when physical connection is so restricted.
