Broomgrove Schools’ Parent-Teacher Association
The Broomgrove Schools’ Association (BSA) was set up to help build the swimming pool, and has continued to raise funds to maintain the pool, giving all our children the wonderful opportunity of swimming lessons in their very own school. We also manage to raise significant additional funds: the infant and junior schools have most recently used these to buy play equipment and library books.
What do we do?
Every year we organize the Summer Fair and the Fireworks (generally the first Friday in July, and the Friday closest to November 5th), as well as the recently-introduced Easter egg hunt. We also fundraise via the clothes/textiles collections, and the Christmas card printing. Other social events (quiz nights, raffles etc.) have been held in the past: the new committee’s aim is to make the existing events better than ever, and to explore more ideas for fun events and activities that also raise money for the schools.
How can you help us?
IDEAS: Please do float any ideas by us – we’ll pursue those that seem to have most support! So far these include:
a ‘walk-to-school’ initiative, a
bring in your old and foreign coins
Do send any additional ideas (or what you think of these ideas listed above) to carolrennie at ymail dot com and we will see what we have support/the energy for!
EVENTS: We would be really grateful for your help at our events. We know you all have many other obligations, but if you are willing in principle, please give us your contact details so we put you on our database and contact you with calls for help – even if it’s just half an hour to help set up/man a stall/pack away.
If you are willing in principle to help, please send your email address to carolrennie at ymail dot com so that we can email you with direct requests for help when we need it. Just let us know your name, and whether you are associated with the infant or junior school. Many thanks!

Who are we?
Anyone with a child at Broomgrove is a member of our Association. Those of us with active roles in 2018/19 are listed below: we meet with the School heads for a formal meeting once a term, and then some of us will meet in little task groups and by email circulation to organize the various activities and events.
Chair: Mrs Karen Pigram - firstname.lastname@example.org
Treasurer: Miss Lucy Webb
Secretary: Mrs Emily Olney - email@example.com
If you are someone who is well networked at the school gates, we’d be really grateful to have a couple of ‘class reps’ for every class, so that we could alert you to BSA activities/ requests for help, and you could then spread the word about these/rally parents in your child’s class to take part or help out (you wouldn’t have to become a formal committee member, or feel obliged to help out yourself, unless you wanted to)
