The Bruton Primary School Parent Staff Association is a group of enthusiastic volunteers who coordinate enjoyable fundraisers for the benefit of the school. It is the aim of the PSA to be inclusive, approachable, and fun to support. We also provide a partnership between home and school to bring staff, parents, and friends together socially in support of the children.
All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available. All families are automatically members of the PSA when their child joins our school, but their level of engagement and input is optional. All help, no matter how little, is very much appreciated.
Our Committee consists of Jem Pawsey (Chair), Lorna Taylor (Treasurer), Rachel Brown (Secretary) Rebecca McClelland and Chris Roberts. We also have a wider group of dedicated volunteers who attend committee meetings and help with PSA events on a regular basis.
Meetings are held several times per term, and any parent/guardian or staff member can attend to find out what the association are planning, and to share ideas and get involved.
We welcome any help from parents, teachers and friends. If you would like to join us please speak to a committee member, come along to our next meeting, or email us – firstname.lastname@example.org.
How we raise money
Like most PSAs, the majority of our funds are raised through the events that we run. Donations from parents are extremely important. You can donate time, money, items for sale, raffle prizes and auction lots, or offers of services and skills.
How we spend the money we raise
The PSA committee are responsible for deciding how our PSA funds are spent, with input from our key group of volunteers. Funds are typically spent on the ‘extras’ that are not covered by the school’s budget, thus making our children’s learning experiences so much more fulfilling and exciting. If you wish to be a part of funding allocation decisions, you are very welcome to get in touch.
How we keep you up to date
We have a PSA noticeboard situated on the walkway into school where you’ll find all our posters and news.
