Loose Parts Play has arrived at Broughton!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the PSA fundraising events last year.

The money raised has allowed us to introduce Loose Parts Play into the playground and provide training for staff. As you can see from the photographs the children are enjoying being creative and imaginative playing with the equipment.

We now look forward to the delivery of the container to store more equipment in!

Each class has been organised a play date for using Loose Parts in May, to which parents and carers are invited!

Please visit your child(ren)’s class page(s) in the ‘Class Information’ section of the website to access these invitations.

Pupils from P1-P7 are running to raise money for ongoing playground improvements. This year we want to buy new picnic benches and loose parts play equipment AND continue the culture fund.

Summer Fair flyer 2016

The Summer Fair is always a very successful fund raising event, but wouldn’t be possible without the fantastic support of our amazing volunteers. We are still looking for volunteers to support this year’s event, so please contact the PSA if you can help in any way!

School Lottery

If you haven’t yet joined our school lottery, but have been thinking about it, now’s the time! There’s an iPad up for grabs, with all new supporters being entered in to the draw to be in with a chance of winning.

To date our 36 supporters have raised £390.40 for PSA funds, and by the end of the year that figure is a predicted £1,144. All that money will be put towards continuing our cultural fund which has been providing extra curricular activities for all year groups.
