Why do we need the PTA?
The Wessex Primary School PTA (Parent Teachers Association) exists to raise money for the school’s “little extras”.
In the recent past PTA-raised money has funded:
- New Outdoor Lodge Classroom “Treetops”
- The Playground Fort
- Artist visits to school
- Class Christmas gifts
- School trips
- PE equipment
- Football kit for school team
- Ice lollies at sports day
- Visualisers for use in classrooms (sophisticated projectors)
- Garden improvements and play equipment in the nursery
- Part of the Playground Makeover project
- A fully equipped kitchen in Lower School
- Golden time games / activities for all year groups
- Subsidise Year 6 Leavers Party & activities
- Traversing wall
Every parent/guardian of a pupil is automatically a member of the PTA. There is also a PTA Committee which organises and runs events. Any parent/guardian/teacher can join the Committee.
The Wessex Primary School PTA is a registered charity – charity number 1041997.
