Welcome to the PJSA webpage!

Thank you to everyone who donated to our Bag2School collection, it was a successful fundraiser.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to Purbrook’s Got Talent.  The Judges certainly had their work cut out this year when making the decision of who was the winner!  Well done!

Details of our forthcoming events can be found further down this page.

PJSA Meeting – Tuesday 7 May 2019 – 3.20pm

Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday 7 May 2019 at 3.20pm.  (Meetings are usually held on the first monday of the month.)  If you would like to join us and bring your ideas/suggestions please enter the school via the office and sign in.  Meetings are usually held in 3B’s classroom.  Children are welcome along too, but remain your responsibility at all times.  If you are unable to attend but would like to send in your ideas/suggestions please email us on the above email address.

Forthcoming events:


Magic Show – Wednesday 1 May – 3.20pm-4.45pm -Silly Scott will be coming to Purbrook Junior School with his magic.

Mufti Day – Monday 20 May – Wear non school uniform in return for a bottle for our bottle tombola at the May Fair.

May Fair – Wednesday 22 May – 3.20pm-5pm – Our annual May Fair will be back with lots of games to be played and prizes to be won.  Lots of help and donations of raffle prizes are gratefully received.  Please let me know your availability to help before, during or after the event.

Sports Day Refreshments – Tuesday 18 June (reserve – Thursday 12 July) – We will need lots of help with setting up from 8am, throughout the day, until the clear up at the end of the school day.  It would be good if we could get volunteers to help, even for just 15 minutes so that the PJSA team can see our children at sports day.  A member of the PJSA team will be on the stall at all times to guide you – you won’t be left on your own!

Details about these events will be displayed around the school, sent home via letter/Parentmail and are available to pick up from the PJSA rack in the Junior School reception area.

All profit made from these events benefits the children at Purbrook Junior School.

Helpers required:

We are always looking for helpers, as without helpers these events would not be possible.  Please contact us on the above email or by leaving your contact details in our PJSA post box (which is located in the Junior School office area) if you are able to help.  We are a friendly bunch of like minded parents/carers and being part of the PJSA is good fun for us as well as the children.

We need:


Items for our raffle or tombola – please leave any unwanted gifts or donations with the Junior School reception staff.  Thank you in advance.

Clean empty jars for the sweet tombola.  Bottles for the bottle tombola.

Sponsorship Requests:

We have purchased a set of 8 virtual reality headsets for the use of the children of Purbrook Junior School which will enhance their technology and learning without having to take them out of the classroom.

We have purchased and installed new picnic benches from recycled plastic which the children are using at breaktimes.  Shortly the fencing around this area will be refurbished and the Gardening Club are going to plant some hardy shrubs to further enhance this area.

Outside the library we are in the process of installing some benches, including two “buddy” benches.  We aim to provide an area where the children can be outside whilst learning.

If you have any suggestions where you would like future funds spent, please get in contact with the PJSA.

If you know of anyone who would like to sponsor any of our fundraising events via match funding or donations please pass our email address on to them.

If you know of anyone/business whom would help with volunteering at our events please ask them to contact purbrookpjsa@gmail.com – we would be really grateful for their help.

Thank you again for your continued support for the benefit of the children of Purbrook Junior School.
