Welcome to the newly named BUDE FEDERATION FRIENDS (BFF) - previously: the Bude Junior School Parents and Teachers Association (PTA)
Our aim is to enhance the learning experience of children in the school. We do this by fundraising to provide additional school equipment and help towards projects. We also aim to provide a forum where parents, staff and children are able to socialise outside of school hours.
We organise a series of fundraising events throughout the year, some for parents and some for the whole family, which we hope are fun and entertaining but also raise funds for our school.
The PTA has managed to raise enough money to pay for lots of items around the school for the benefit of all our children. The new adventure play equipment was funded by the PTA, as were the books that each child received as a Christmas gift.
Once your child starts at Bude Junior you are automatically a member of the PTA. As such, you are welcome to attend any of the meetings that are held. Details are publicised widely before each event.
A new committee has formed this year along with a regular group of parents who have volunteered to help at the different events. We are a friendly bunch and whilst we appreciate that some parents cannot commit on a regular basis, it would be great to have a list of those that are happy to come along and help man our events. Our meetings are short and informal and it is a great opportunity to meet other parents and get help your child’s school.
If you would like to know more, or to get involved, then please contact the Chair of our PTA or our Head Teacher, at the school.
