Learn Together - SHARE Success

POMs (Brentry Primary School PTA)

POMS are a rather fantastic group of parents, staff and governors who help the pupils and staff of the school by raising money and supporting at events.  They regularly organise activities such as discos, barbecues, fayres and sales, and the funds raised go on things such as teaching resources, play items, residential camps and trips. The help they provide at school events such as New Parents' Evening and Carols by Candlelight is invaluable.  A more dedicated group of volunteers you couldn't wish to meet...but they always need and welcome fresh faces in the team. If you are interested in helping out, please let the school office know.

Recent Events

Who are we? 

The Brentry Primary School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is run by parents with pupils at Brentry Primary School and staff. We aim to raise funds for the school whilst having fun and we actually do have fun! We promise that all the ‘scary’ jobs are already filled but we are hoping to find extra hands to help us raise much-needed funds for our children.

 

What we do, why do we do it and who benefits?

We meet regularly to discuss ways we can raise new funds for our schools. We are always open to new ideas. In the past, we’ve raised money by running events such as our Christmas & Summer Fairs, Film & Disco Nights, Easter Egg Hunt & Tuck shops which are used to fund items like the following for the school:

- Outfits for dance shows
- Picnic benches for the playground

- Annual panto for pupils

- Sandpit and outdoor equipment
- Contribution to transport for school trips
-  New school football kit
- First Aid training course for children in Years 5 and 6

 

What are we hoping to achieve next?

Each year, the school gives us a wish list that we consider as a group. This year they’ve asked for help re-designing the KS2 outside play areas.

 

What kind of help do we need?

We would love you to get involved in our schools - join the 15.2 million Britons who care enough about their community to volunteer. We want to work together to try and enrich the school environment for our children and for the future. We hope that our new volunteers can bring diversity and different perspectives to our group. Some of the benefits to you and our schools are:

* Making a positive difference to other people * Sharing and learning new skills * Boosting a CV * Meeting new people and having fun* Providing positive adult role models * Involvement in the school and community * Learning new skills * Assisting students to achieve * Feeling welcomed and valued at school * Sharing knowledge and talents * Enriching the school environment * Parent understanding and cooperation * Appreciation for the talents and contributions of teachers, parents and community volunteers

 

If you have any questions or comments, please contact Hannah Jack at school on hjack@brentryprimaryschool.org.uk or through our Facebook page. Please “Like” us on Facebook: Brentry Primary School and be kept up-to-date with all of our events and news.  

 

Thank You!  Brentry PTA
