We extend a warm welcome to visitors whether they are current or former students, parents, carers, teachers, friends or members of the local community.
This section of the school website is dedicated to providing up-to-date information and details relating to the activities of 'BPFA'. The committee and their helpers regularly arrange fundraising activities to bring in much needed extra funds for school projects. The students of now and in future years will be able to enjoy items which may not have been otherwise provided through educational budgets and/or grants.
Everyone! All parents and teachers are automatically members of BPFA, and membership is even wider as we have established a Friends Association. So beyond mums dads and carers - grandparents, older siblings and other members of the wider community can also be a great source of support.

What is a Friends Association?
Most schools have a Parent & Teacher Association (PTA) or a Friends Association (FA), which is an organisation of parents and staff. Its role is to encourage closer links between home and school. PTAs are best known for their fundraising work, but they have a useful social function too. Fundraising events provide an opportunity for parents, staff and students to get together.
How is money raised?
Most PTAs raise money through events. They often hold one main event each school term – for example, a Christmas fair in the winter, a quiz in the spring, and a summer fair. Other PTA events include school uniform sales, discos, firework displays, international evenings and many more. They're always looking for new fundraising ideas.
