Parents’ Association

The Brecknock Parents Association exists to promote and enhance the Brecknock community.

We organise events and activities throughout the year to bring together the community and enrich our children’s school experience. Wherever possible we raise money for extra-curricular programmes or to expand school resources. Parents’ Association funds will go towards enhancing playground equipment.  Due to the fund-raising nature of our organisation, we are a charity and have a committee structure in place which exists solely to offer accountability and as a point of contact for the entire Brecknock community.

Every parent or carer with a child at Brecknock Primary School is automatically a part of the Parent’s Association. We regularly hold meetings to plan events and organise volunteers.  Recently, the Parents’ Association coordinated the Eid Tea, and we will be planning upcoming events such as the Christmas Fair, Easter Disco and Summer Community Festival. All parents/carers are welcome to join in, share ideas, skills and get involved in any way they can. Even if you do not wish to become a committee member, we always need volunteers at events and would welcome any help offered.

Our meetings are informal, and we are always pleased to see new faces. Information about up-coming meetings will be displayed on the Parents’ Association notice board and on the Parents’ Association page on the website together with what was discussed in previous meetings. If you wish to participate, please speak to any member of the Parents’ Association whose details are on the notice board or your child’s class Parent Representative who will be delighted to explain it all. You can also email brecknockpta@gmail.com and let us know about you.

You can join us every Tuesday morning after drop off for coffee in the reception area outside the school office. We also have a parents’ gardening club that meets after the coffee on Tuesday mornings. We’d love to have you come along and find out more about how you can become more involved in the life of the school.

The Parents’ Association is a multicultural group that represents the diversity of people at Brecknock. We are proud of our diversity and are keen to share the richness of our cultures. All of our children benefit from the work of the Parents’ Association. Please help continue this work by attending and supporting its activities.
