Meet the PTA

Welcome from your PTA

 

As a parent of a child at Watlington Primary School you are automatically a member of the PTA (Parent Teacher Associate). Your PTA is about much more than simply fundraising (although we do a lot of that!). The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school and is an excellent way to bring parents, staff and other supporters together socially in support of our lovely school.

 

What does the PTA do?

 

We meet on a regular basis, usually once per term, when all members are very welcome. At these meetings we vote on proposals, form smaller event planning groups for specific initiatives (such as the Christmas disco or the Summer fete) and make suggestions for spending and raising funds. The PTA committee and event planning groups also meet as necessary to manage the charity, fundraising and events.

 

You will receive regular updates via the school newsletter to provide you with information about what the PTA has done, what the future plans are and how you can get involved.

 

We welcome any suggestions for improvement or additions… Just get in touch with one of the Committee!

 

The committee - who are we?

 

We are a group of like minded individuals who are passionate about making a difference in the community and working together with the school to provide the very best for the children of the school. Many of us work full time and juggle our commitments to the Committee with work, childcare, general life admin… but most of all, we all have fun. We have representatives throughout the age groups of the school. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to any of us.

Class Representatives & WhatsApp groups

 

Each class has a PTA class representative, who provides communication between the PTA committee and the school class they are responsible for. This communication is often managed via the class WhatsApp groups. If you need to be added to the WhatsApp group please reach out to Amy on watlingtonoxonpta@gmail.com

Get Involved

The smooth running of the PTA is entirely dependent on volunteers. We know that everyone is busy and joining a PTA can sound daunting. By dividing the workload across multiple roles we ensure that no single individual is overloaded, whilst providing the opportunity for all parents to get involved in a way that suits their schedule.

 

Are you interested in joining us on the PTA? We are always on the lookout for new committee members and fresh ideas! It is a fantastic way to meet like minded parents. We meet once a term to discuss the organisation of local events and fundraising opportunities. To find out about the current vacancies in the PTA committee please contact Amy on watlingtonoxonpta@gmail.com.
