Welcome to the Wilstead Primary School PTA page!

Who are the PTA?


The Wilstead Primary School PTA is a charity run by a friendly group of parents who work together to support and add value to the school, largely through fundraising events. These people are in roles for 2022:


PTA Chair: Yvonne Hayes

Secretary: Katherine Picton

Treasurer: Asan Tu


There are many more parents involved, who all work hard to make life more enjoyable for children and parents within the school community. 


What does the PTA do?


Fundraising is the main thing the PTA does, which directly adds value to the improvement of the school. Historically the PTA has funded big extra curricular facilities that Government funding does not allow, for example the treehouse.


But there's a lot more to it than that.


  • Events such as Lambing Days, Summer Fetes and Christmas Trails bring people together within the local area, creating a great sense of community spirit.
  • Pre-Loved Uniform stalls are held in the playground before and after school on a semi regular basis, contributing to sustainable practises around school uniform.
  • School resources such as painting supplies, books and ice lollies in summer are just a few of the more subtle ways that fundraising is able to make school life more enjoyable for the children.


While COVID has stopped bigger events from taking place in recent times, the PTA has continued to add value to school life through fun 'dress down' or 'break-the rules' days for the children - all with the continued support of parents, teachers, and the wonderful school community.


When does the PTA meet?


Meetings are held via zoom (due to COVID) a couple of times each term. Generally once within the first couple of weeks of term, and again after half term. Members meet more regularly if events are in motion, as and when needed.


The next PTA meeting is taking place:

Thursday 13 January 2022, 8pm via Zoom


Interested in getting involved?


Being part of the PTA is a great way of getting to know other families and teachers from the school, while making a valuable contribution to the quality of school life for everyone. It can be really rewarding, children love seeing their parents in school and knowing that they're part of the same community. 


So if you're interested in getting involved, whether it's as an active member of the PTA, or someone who helps out at events, please do get in touch - we'd love to hear from you!
