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
  • Pantomimes
  • 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.
