Autumn 2023


Christmas Fair! What a HUGE success! Thank you to all the staff, parents, governors and volunteers who helped make the event so fabulous. Collectively, the school and PTA raised over £750!



Join us for our Christmas Fair on Thursday 14th December from 2:45pm. 

 We are busy planning the Christmas Fair! If you have any ideas or would like to help, please email us or come along to one of our meetings - everyone is welcome!



Our Halloween Cinema Night was a great success! The children came in fancy dress with blankets and pillows to get snuggly and comfy to watch the movie. We all had lots of treats and a great time with our friends.


Thank you to the staff and the parent who volunteered their time.

Welcome to Brightside! As a parent or carer of a child at Brightside you are already a member of our 'Friends of Brightside' community. 

We are always on the look-out for new parents, carers and friends to join our meetings and help make our school the very best it can be.

If you have a little time to spare, want to meet new people or have some great ideas to support school then please come along and join us at our next meeting.


We will post the meeting time and date on the school app.


Here is some information about what a PTA is and why they are so valuable:


Summer 2023

June: Many thanks to everyone who attended the meeting on 27.6.23. We have had some great feedback regarding the quiz night which we all agreed was a huge success! 

Further plans were discussed at the meeting - please email if you would like a copy of the minutes. 

May: we had another successful meeting to finalise plans for our upcoming quiz night. Please see the flyer below for more information and email us at to secure a place for your team!

We are also looking into the ideas for the Summer Fayre - please let us know if you have any suggestions!

Spring 2023

 We have had another successful meeting and have some exciting events to share with you.

We would like to ask people in the community to support our events either through donations or by sponsoring an event. We have listed the events below and ideas for how much a local business could sponsor the event for to help make it a success.


Do you know any businesses that could help? If so, please speak to Miss Parker or Mrs Jenkins-Omar. We will be able to offer incentives to businesses such as advertising and promoting as a thank you for their support.


Autumn 2022

We are really excited to be creating our own Friends of Brightside this year (also known as a 'PTA' - Parent Teacher Association).

So far we have held an initial meeting to talk through what a PTA is and make some initial plans about how we would like to help and support the school.

The group had some great fundraising ideas - some of which you will see at the Christmas Fair!
