PAWoodthorne Primary and Nursery School have an active Parent Teacher Association (PTA).  As the parent of a child who attends Woodthorne School you are automatically a member of our PTA.  How you get involved is entirely up to you!

We always need fresh faces and fresh ideas to ensure that we can support our children’s school and provided as many resources and opportunities as possible.  Our meetings are friendly and informal and give you a chance to meet other parents whilst supporting your child’s education.

Why do we raise funds?

In recent years some of the money raised through these activities has funded:

  • Play equipment and markings on KS1 playground
  • Contributions towards the cost of school trips
  • Complementary school bags for our new starters in Reception
  • Yearbooks for our Year 6 children

We are about to spend some money on the KS2 playground following our hugely successful bingo evening in January.

 What events do we hold?

In recent years the PTA has hosted:

  • The Great British Bake Off
  • Bingo
  • Pamper Nights
  • Discos
  • Summer Raffles
  • Christmas Fairs
  • Easter Extravaganza

As you can see the PTA works hard all year round, and needs your support to keep going!  We always welcome fresh ideas and suggestions.

people Come along to our meetings:

Whether you just listen or pitch in we’d love to see you.  We regularly meet- generally in the evening, but sometimes during the day to ensure as many parents who want are able to come along.   Attending meetings can give parents a really strong connection to the school whilst giving them a great way to meet other parents

handshake Helping Out: 

It takes a few people to plan event but a whole lot more to run one!  Please give us your contact details and we will contact you now and again to see if you can help.  For example you could run a stall at a fayre, or behind the scenes you could stuff raffle tickets into envelopes.
