**SUMMER FAIR - SATURDAY 23rd JUNE 12-3PM**

 Save the date for our fantastic, fun filled fair, kindly sponsored this year by South London Lofts.  We have lots of exciting things planned but  need the support of parents and teachers to make a good day into a brilliant one!  There are many ways you can help.  Please contact broadwaterprimarypta@gmail.com for more information. 

Welcome to Broadwater Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

Broadwater PTA is a voluntary organisation made up of parents, teachers and school staff and has been a registered charity since 2013 (Registered Charity No: 1150858).  Our key goals are:

  • To raise funds to enrich the education of all children at Broadwater Primary School and support school activities;
  • To help build a sense of community between parents, staff and others associated with the school;
  • To ensure that children enjoy their time at Broadwater by providing fun social events and other PTA sponsored activities.

As a parent or carer of a child at Broadwater, you are automatically part of the PTA and we welcome anyone who would like to get involved. The skills, experience and enthusiasm provided by parents and teachers play a vital role in the PTA’s success and all contributions, big or small, are greatly appreciated.

We recently held the PTA Annual General Meeting to elect a Chair, Treasurer and Committee members for the coming year. Your wonderful new PTA heroes for this year are:

We are a friendly and helpful group made up of parents and teachers and look forward to a successful and fun year.  Please come and say hello in the playground - photographs to follow so names can be put to faces. 

The important work we do

The PTA runs several events throughout the year including the Summer Fair, Sport’s Fair and Christmas Fair.  In addition to this we organise cake sales, uniform sales and other fun events for pupils, parents, and staff to enjoy.  Money from these fundraising activities benefit all children at Broadwater and support the school, allowing them to buy new equipment, books and run school trips that otherwise would not be possible.

In 2017 we made a huge £11,955.00. Thank you so much to everyone – parents, teachers, businesses, and our sponsors Landmark Lofts – that contributed to this amazing amount.  It really is a joint effort and a great achievement! 

Hand in hand we can – how you can help

Contributing to the PTA can be a great way to gain confidence, meet other parents and learn new skills.   If you are interested, please email broadwaterprimarypta@gmail.com or why not attend one of the weekly coffee mornings from 8:50AM every Thursday in the Community Room where you can chat to a friendly member of the PTA committee.  

 We always need people to:

  • Share ideas – this is your school and we value your input so if you have an idea about fundraising or an event, please get in touch!
  • Help at upcoming events either on the day or help with preparations
  • Do a spot of gardening in the nursery, reception gardens and the wildlife and growing areas in the field – contact Kate Filby
    broadwatergarden@gmail.com

Easy Fundraising













Help us by collecting free donations every time you shop online. Follow these 3 easy steps:

  1. Join: Head to easyfundraising and search for Broadwater Primary School to start fundraising 
  2. Shop: There are nearly 3,000 retailers on board, so pick the one you want and start shopping
  3. Raise: After you’ve made your purchase, the retailer will make a donation to Broadwater Primary School at no extra cost to you

    Ask if your employer offers Match Funding

Many companies offer ‘matched giving’ to their employees - meaning that if you raise funds for the school, they will also donate funds.  For example, if you help out at a particular event the company will ‘match’ what that event or staff raises.  Please speak to your Charity/Community/Sustainability representative or someone in HR about whether this is something your company does.  It could mean even more money to spend on our school!
