Friends of Wheatfield Primary School PTA
Registered charity no. 1149714
Hello and welcome to all 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.
We are a friendly and enthusiastic group of parents who meet regularly volunteering our time to enhance our children's primary school journey by fundraising, collaborating and creating community. We hold meetings termly.
Thank you for your ongoing support. You can find our latest newsletter here.
Committee Members for 2022/2023
Our AGM is held every October where the committee is nominated and voted in. Our meetings take place termly. Below are the volunteer committee members for this academic year. Like you, we are busy parents and although our committee members have formal titles we are really just a group of friendly Mums, Dads and carers that give up our spare time to help the school raise much needed funds.

How can you get involved?
You can give as much or as little time as you want, from behind the scenes to helping at events, to making cakes to buying them from one of our cake sales! But if you have some time to spare...
We are always in need of volunteers. If you would like to help us please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to one of us around the school. We need you and can't run events without you!
- Become a Friends Committee Member
If you think you might be able to donate more of your time than a volunteer, we'd love to hear from you! Committee members are voted in at the start of every school year at our AGM (annual general meeting) each October. Email us at email@example.com for more information.
