Buckminster School is fortunate to be supported by an enthusiastic and active PTFA, which makes a considerable contribution to the purchase of equipment and resources for the school, to the cost of some educational visits and to the life of the school in general.

All parents are automatically members and there is no fee. Former parents and interested people may become members as 'friends'. They will receive news of PTFA activities and be invited to take an active part.

The Annual General Meeting is held every October, at which officers are elected; the remainder of the committee comprises volunteer parents and friends, plus the teaching staff. The committee meets at least twice a term.

The PTFA welcomes the support of parents and friends of the school. We can be easily contacted through the school.

All upcoming PTFA fundraising events will be listed on Buckminster Bites and the PTFA Facebook page

Bag2School    Collection Monday 11th March 2019

Mrs Lucy Wallace has arranged for us to receive “Bag2School” bags and they are in the Office for anybody to collect if you are having an early Spring clearout!  If you are unable to make it into the Office then please let us know and we can send a bag home in your child’s bookbag.

For anyone who hasn’t heard of Bag2school before, the Company send us bags, we fill them with clean unwanted clothes, and shoes.  They collect and dispatch to relevant charities in need and we receive a percentage against the weight collected.  So lots of shoes are great!!

Items allowed are clearly marked on bags.  We look forward to receiving your donations which will be much appreciated.  Thank you.
