Laurel’s Update

This week, I am writing to you with an important message about school funding. Today, your child has bought home a letter from the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) which is also available by clicking here. We are all aware of the financial challenges that families, businesses and organisations face – Brookfield is facing these too. If we want to maintain Brookfield’s unique provision (specialist music teachers, artist in residence, Forest School, workshops, free fruit for all children, clubs etc.) we need to be creative about paying for these experiences that go beyond what the government funds. Please consider how you might be able to support future PTA events to raise money for the school or, you might be in a position to sign up for a monthly donation. Thank you for taking the time to read the letter from the PTA.
Thank you for attending parent/teacher meetings at yesterday’s open afternoon. If you were not able to meet your child’s class teacher, please make another appointment before the half term break.
