Friends of Brookfield
As part of the Flourish Federation, it has been agreed that the two PTA’s – the Infants FOBS and Juniors PTFA have merged.
As we are sure you know, our two groups of parents work together with the teachers to provide a fun range of activities for the children and raise valuable funds for the school.
Last school year, the two groups raised over £4000! This money has gone back to the school in order to provide up to date equipment, subsidised school trips or pay for cultural days.
All this cannot be done without a team of people who are willing to help either at events, organise or just show their support. It is always done alongside work, families and life. So members of the two groups are essential and greatly appreciated.

Year 6 Fundraising Team
The Year 6 Fundraising Team have raised an incredible £1263!!
This has been through the tireless efforts of the year 6 parents, helpers and children who are undertaking a huge amount of fundraising themselves under the guidance of our year 6 parent team.
They have been doing cake sales at every possible chance, which is always a big hit and have been bag packing at Morrisons.
They also stood out in the rain proudly representing our school at the light up Larkfield community event.
Cake sales - £167
Bag packing - £620
Light Up Larkfield - £476
All of the year 6 fundraising is for their life skills programme. The Common Room is also underway but the main Juniors pot will cover this as it will be something for all years in time!

Exciting news, our first official joint event...
On Friday 9th February we will be hosting a Pamper Evening!!! This was a much loved event in the past and with the two schools federating we thought it was an ideal opportunity to start these bigger events up again!
Please save the date and we will be sending more information out shortly about how to buy tickets and book treatments.
Don't forget, everyone is welcome to be a part of our team. We have great fun and the more people we have the more we can do for the children and our schools.
