Brookfield School, like many other schools across London, has had its government income cut in the last few years. This is because of flat funding, increased costs and the proposed ‘Fairer Funding’ initiative. The PTA is committed to raising as much money as possible for the school, which is why we need your help.
The PTA is a registered charity that with the aim of enriching and supporting the education of all Brookfield children. It normally raises money through winter and summer fairs, bake sales and other events. Since the onset of the Coronavirus, this is even more of a challenge.
Each year it funds several trips for the children, including helping towards the costs of the year 6 residential week at Sayers Croft, the year 5 experience, the year 2 trip to Broadstairs and several others. It also helps towards various artistic activities including Shakespeare workshops, the FAB project, music lessons and instruments, swimming, and other learning resources.
If you want to know more about the PTA funded projects, please do get in touch.

How you can help?
You can donate directly via BACS. If you would like to make a regular or one-off donation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get the bank details. We will also ask you to fill out a Gift Aid form so that we can reclaim an extra 25% on any donation.
We will soon be creating a CAF donate account for regular giving donations.
In addition to organising lots of exciting fundraising events, the school has also signed up to Easyfundraising. This will make it easier for people to donate money directly to the school.
By signing up to Easyfundraising, your purchases with over 3,000 shops and sites, (including retailers such as Ocado, Amazon and uSwitch) will mean Brookfield gets a donation every time you shop. You simply install a browser plugin and it works automatically when you go to a participating online retailer. Here’s how to do it.
And it doesn’t cost you anything! Join up and ask family and friends to sign up too.
Every penny raised will help children at Brookfield and your generosity will make a real difference to the lives of children at Brookfield now and in the future.
