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 Association). 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 plan events and make suggestions for spending funds.  Events are affordable and fun for the children, such as the Christmas disco, Easter trail and film nights.  Money raised enables us to fund regular music and languages teaching programmes for the school and subsidise school trips.  In recent years we’ve also made larger purchases, such as new laptops, ukuleles, picnic benches and an adventure climbing frame.

You will receive regular updates from the PTA via the school newsletter.



The committee - who are we?


The PTA committee are parent volunteers who are passionate about making a difference in the community and working together with the school to provide the very best for all the children.  Please see details of the current team below.  We are always on the lookout for new committee members and fresh ideas!  We also welcome anyone who would like to organise a one-off event or help by gathering donations of raffle prizes without joining the committee regularly. It is a fantastic way to meet like-minded parents and by spreading running activities between a large group it is very manageable and we have fun!  To find out more please contact Amy on

Second-hand Uniform

We have masses of second-hand uniform, all of which is checked when it is donated and only good quality clothing is kept.  It is available for a small donation, though if you are struggling financially we can also provide second-hand uniform for free, please contact the school in confidence with your child’s size.  The second-hand uniform co-ordinators are Jennie Shields and Rebecca Young.


Welcome to our wonderful school!
