Volunteer opportunities

There are lots of ways to help out and get involved in supporting the school – whether you are able to make a big commitment, or just an hour here and there.  If you would like to help out in any way, contact us at: clerk.bhspc@broughtonhighpc.org

PC members – we are always keen for more parents to come along to PC meetings. The more parents attend, the wider a range of views gets fed back to the school, and small jobs can be shared out more fairly. 

April 2023 – two of our longstanding committee members will be leaving at the end of this school year, so we are urgently looking for Clerk, Treasurer and Communications volunteers! All of these roles can be shared.

Here is a brief summary of the main duties involved for each role:

Parent Council Clerk/ Secretary

  • Take minutes at Parent Council meetings
  • Email notification of upcoming meetings, agenda and minutes to office bearers
  • Mailchimp invite to parents and carers with agenda and minutes
  • Manage the clerk email enquiries: clerk.bhspc@broughtonhighpc.org
  • Act as co-signatory for cheques, with BHSA Treasurer
  • Annually add new subscribers to Mailchimp email list

Parent Council Treasurer

  • Manage Parent Council income and expenditure
  • Ensure out of pocket expenses are reimbursed promptly
  • Maintain records and make accounts available on request
  • Ensure accounts are reviewed annually
  • Report to PC meetings on current balance and planned spending

Parent Council – Communication team

  • Keep website and calendar up-to-date
  • Publicise PC/BHSA events and share other relevant info on social media (Facebook and Twitter)
  • Respond to queries from parents and carers

To find out more or have a chat without making a commitment, email us at intouch@broughtonhighpc.org. The current post-holders are very happy to do a thorough handover and there will be plenty of support from the rest of the committee.

All committee roles (Chair, Vice-Chair, Clerk, Treasurer and Communications) can be shared. Meetings are held approximately once per term – 2022/23 we have been meeting on a Monday evening but this can be changed to suit the new committee.  Dates for the rest of this year are on the calendar in the diary page of this site.

Broughton Association – the Broughton Association undertakes fundraising throughout the year.  Money raised goes to support school departments (see BA page on our site for more details). We would love some new recruits to help with fresh ideas for fundraising and social events.

Our Chair will be moving on at the end of the 23/24 school year so now is an ideal time to get involved and have a chance for a thorough handover. We would also welcome new committee members!

Committee meetings are held approximately once per month on a Wednesday or Thursday evening, 7.30-8.30pm,  throughout term-time, usually at The Place on Raeburn Place, Stockbridge (in the rugby development – entrance is next to the Co-op).  Check our diary page for the next meeting.

Contact Lesley, chair of BHSA, at: bhsassociation@gmail.com for more information.

Bro-Works – the Bro-Works committee are looking for new members.   Parents on the committee support the school’s careers fair, help pupils to find work experience, support the Meaningful May programme and run the hugely successful Bro-Works Careers Breakfasts when they are able to resume.   

This role suits someone who has some time available during the school day as it involves meeting staff at the school approximately once per month during term-time.

200 Club – this charity lottery is another fantastic fundraising initiative, new helpers are always welcome.  The only commitment is to attend short meetings held approximately once a month on a weekday evening.  You can join the 200 Club for a minimum of £5 per month – see Broughton Association page for more details.  Contact Colin Gilbert at: 200Club@broughtonhighpc.org for more information.
