Parents and Friends of Brandhall
A parent-led community with the aim of fundraising and organising school events
We would like to send a huge welcome to those visiting our PFoB page.
We are a group of parents from Brandhall Primary who are continuously raising vital funds for the benefit of the children and most importantly, organise community events which enables the children to have lots of fun in the process (your children will probably recognise us as the mischievous elves from Santa's Grotto, see our pictures in the 'past events' section below!).
Our 'PFOB' has been running for some time but was recently revamped in September 2022 and since then, we have accomplished some great events with much more to come!
Below you can find all the up and coming events we have planned for the children, and the wider community– please do keep an eye on the website, our posters and the Brandhall Beat for more information closer to the dates of the events. We also have a 'Parents and Friends of Brandhall' Facebook page and our own display board in the foyer, where updates are regularly posted.
We are always looking for new input from parents/carers so if you would like to join us and get involved with our planning, idea making and event organising over a cup of coffee, please get in touch with us by contacting the office on 0121 422 5336 (or grab Rachel or Rachael in the playground!).

We kindly ask that any clothes donated are fully washed and ready to wear. Uniforms are limited to 4 items per customer and we are grateful for a suggested donation of £2, or any amount families are able to give.
Past Events 2022-23 Academic Year
Thank you to all parents and pupils that supported our Valentine's Disco on 16th February. We hope children had a fabulous time, dancing their way into half term.
This event helped raise a fantastic £300.64 which will aid in the purchase of playground furniture.
The children got the chance to visit Santa in his beautifully decorated Grotto on the 14th and 16th December; children were given a present and had their picture taken with Santa.
Our mischievous elves sprinkled their festive spirit on the event and it was delightful to see the smiles on all of the children's faces.
Winter Fete:Come and join us after school or prior to/after your parent's evening appointment in the main school hall to purchase refreshments and snacks such as cakes and samosas and visit stalls of local businesses selling some great items.
We are delighted to announce that we are having an autumn disco on Thursday 20th October. Tickets can be purchased on ParentPay at a cost of £1.50 per child and small change can be brought in to use at our tuck shop which will be selling items such as sweets, chocolates and mini cakes.
We hope the children have a wonderful time!
Macmillan Coffee Morning:
Our PFoB leant a helping hand to the Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 30th September. It was a joy to see so many of your faces and we thank you for all of the tasty cake donations, along with the funds raised for such a worthy cause.
