Friends of Bourton Meadow - PTA
Who are we?
The Friends of Bourton Meadow is the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) for Bourton Meadow Academy. It is run by a committee of parents who work throughout the year organising activities for the children and fund-raising events that involve the whole school and the wider community.
Our 2016-17 committee
Tim Norman: Interim Chair Andi Brown: Vice Chair
Fiona Hebert/Liv Green : Secretaries Louise Dallaway: Treasurer
Sarah Rogers, Pen Croucher, Kay Hannam & Julie Houston: Committee Members
Our aim is to support the school by raising additional funds for equipment that the school budget is unable to provide. We do this by running a few main events throughout the school year.
What have we provided so far .........
In 2013-14 we provided funding of £2,500 to allow the Nursery Kitchen work to take place.
For 2014-15 we raised over £8,600 and provided new playground equipment and audio equipment to the school.
For 2015-16 we have funded over £5,000 towards kitting out the new library
and provided funding for the new KS2 playground.
For 2016-17 FoBM so far have donated over £3000 to fund the pond renovations which were completed in January 2017.
Our next big project is to raise enough funds to build a Multi Use Games Area for BMA. We need to raise £50,000 to fully fund the building of the MUGA on the Academy grounds so all help however big or small is greatly appreciated.
