Our PTA - Friends of Braywood
Everyone is part of this organisation
The school has a thriving parent and teacher group called the 'Friends of Braywood PTA'. Various social and fund-raising events are held throughout the year. Parents feel it offers a positive means by which they can contribute to the school. It also helps to promote a good home and school relationships.
All parents are automatically members of the PTA. A committee is appointed each year and volunteers are always welcome. Many events are organised including a Christmas fair, a social event and a Fête during the summer. These events raise money that would not otherwise be available to the school. Each class has their own 'class rep' who helps the whole year group.
Any of the existing committee members are usually willing to talk about current fund-raising activities and how the committee is organised. Do please come along and attend our regular meetings.
We have a group of parents who are working alongside our residents to ensure that we maintain a positive mutual relationships. If you are interested in supporting this group do contact the office.
