Wildmoor Heath Parent Teacher Association (WHPTA)
WHPTA is a group of parents and carers, teachers and support staff who work together for the benefit of the children and the wider school environment.
Wildmoor Heath PTA exists for the purpose of raising funds for the school that can be used to improve the experience of its pupils, whilst organising events that provide an opportunity for pupils and their families to come together for enjoyment.
Meetings are held once a month at the school, and are advertised via the school newsletter and Wildmoor Heath PTA facebook page. All parents/carers are welcome to come along to any of our meetings and share their ideas!
2016 saw a range of events held throughout the year to fulfil both elements of this purpose. They included smaller events such a discos and night walks, as well as large events such as the Festival in the Field and the Christmas Fayre, all of which seemed to be thoroughly enjoyed by the children and their families.
These events led to us raising more than £7,500 over the last 12 months, which has been spent on a variety of physical items and enrichment experiences for the whole school to enjoy. As we have done for some years now, we funded £10 towards a school trip for each child and will continue this into the next year.
PTA activities are only able to happen because of the ongoing commitment from the parent/carer community and we would like to thank everyone for their support.
Wildmoor Heath is now registered with Easyfundraising. If you shop online and want to raise money for your school at no cost to you, then please go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk and search for Wildmoor Heath PTA. Signing up is easy and free and everytime you shop with participating retailers, they will give a donation to the school.
So far this year money raised has funded over £9,600 of new equipment and enrichment activities for the benefit of all the children. These included £10 per child towards school trips, £3,000 towards new outdoor play equipment and £3,000 towards the refurbishment of the library/ICT suite.
You can get involved in the following ways:
- behind the scenes help – setting up events, filling rotas, helping at events
- Share any ideas you have for either new events or to help improve existing ones
- by giving us a hand with advertising - word of mouth works a treat!
- Sharing your skills and experience!
Every parent and/or carer becomes part of the PTA when your child joins the school. If you would like to become an active part of the PTA then our group is friendly and very welcoming, there is a core team of committed parents helping to make our events a success. Any parent/carer can join; please do have a chat with any of the committee in the playground if you would like more information about how you can support your school as part of this team. Each class also has a representative and you can sign up your email address to recieve news and information on the PTA from them. You can also follow our Facebook page, Wildmoor Heath PTA . Updates are also posted on the School's Weekly Newsletters.
