Dear Parents and Carers
With so many of us doing our shopping online and Christmas just around the corner we ask you to please download the easyfundraising app. Over 4,000 shops and websites will donate to our school for FREE every time you use the app. These donations will help SO MUCH, so please sign up to support our children - it’s completely FREE and doesn’t take long.
The PTFA will be holding a Bake Sale in the small playground after school on Friday13TH March.
Please could parents and carers of children in Class 3 and 4 donate items for sale.
Thank you for your support.
Recently we had a presentation in the PTFA meeting about the safety of WIFI in schools. The presentation that was available to read through messenger, if any of you have not seen this and would like to read it here is a copy.
In the New year we will proceed with a meeting for parents and teachers. In the mean here are a couple more links that might be helpful with your research over the Christmas break.
We would value your feedback and involvement and look forwards to hearing from you in the NewYear.
We aim to create a safe environment for our children to learn.
So the next big ask is for mulled wine, mince pies and raffle prizes for the school Christmas plays. For new parents, we serve mince pies and mulled wine at the evening performance. Please hand in to the school office if you can donate some.
Help is also needed before both performances. So if you can spare a bit of time please give me or Vicky a shout.
It's that time if year again when we collect all your unwanted clothing to raise some money for school. There is a list of items that are accepted below but if you have any further questions please ask.
A collection bag should be making its way to you via your child at some point soon but if you need any more please see Jo Jones (Tessa's mum) at school pickup alternatively black bags are fine to use too.
Happy cupboard sorting!!! 😊

With it being that time of year when we all start to think about Christmas shopping and preparation I have been asked to share with you a wonderful website that allows you to shop and raise money for the school at the same time - without costing you any extra.
Every time you shop through the app/website retailers make a small donation to your chosen cause. The app is available on all platforms and once downloaded all you need to do is sign up (see below) and choose Broadhempston Primary School, Totnes as your chosen cause.
The app is called easyfundraising and includes over 4000 retailers from Amazon to Tesco (even your food shopping counts) - check out the app/website to see which of your usual websites are offering to donate.
To sign up, use the following link - £5 will automatically be donated to us upon signing up as long as you use the below link!
This is a great opportunity to help the PTFA raise money for the school by simply changing your online shopping habits.
Thank you all for your support - if you would like any more information regarding easyfundraising please see their website or speak to Mr T!
