Hello and welcome to Wheatfield Primary School Families! We are the committee members of the Friends of Wheatfield Primary School Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Here you can see all of the amazing things `The Friends` do for the school! 


Why Do We Have a PTA?

We are very fortunate to have a PTA committee. 'The Friends' as they are known have raised thousands of pounds of which have been spent on improving equipment, resources and facilities in school. But they are about much more than just fundraising. They exist to also help provide closer links between home and school, and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially. All parents and members of our school can get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available. Get in touch and we can show you how.


Our Aims
We are a friendly and enthusiastic bunch who meet regularly to discuss support through fundraising and events. We usually hold meetings once a term. We try to vary the days of the meetings and share the dates with our Registered Helper list. Please feel free to come and join us to find out more about what we are planning. If you are unable to attend but wish to offer support at events or ideas – please contact us either directly at school or using our email pta@wheatfieldprimary.com  


Thank you for your ongoing support
.

Thank you everyone for taking part in the 20p challenge. The total money banked from our 20p challenge was a whopping £1026.16p! What a way to finish our first term!

How can you?

Anything! You can give as much or as little time as you want, from behind the scenes to helping organising events, to making cakes to buying them! But if you have some time to spare...

    We are always in need of helpers! Complete this form and become a `registered helper` - this lets us know how much time you could spare to help us. We will contact you first about upcoming meetings and events!
