By joining the PTA you’ll find it’s a great way to be involved, both socially and practically and, above all, to be part of your child’s journey through secondary school.

Events

The PTA coordinates a number of fun events each year to bring everyone together.Each term there is an Open PTA meeting where all parents are invited to meet other parents, hear about forthcoming events and new initiatives and share ideas. The head teacher, other teachers and governors also attend these and it is a great opportunity to talk through ideas with them.

Other regular fixtures include a lively parent Quiz Night, KS3 Christmas Disco,and the Summer Fair. Extra events planned for this year also include a Palingswick House Gala Fundraising Event. Each year the PTA also support special departmental events including the Music department's Cabaret Evenings and the Sports department's Gala Dinner.

Fundraising

Fundraising is also an important function of the PTA. The money that the PTA raises goes towards making the school a better place. The Headteacher will compile a “wish list”– an annual request for items that he and the staff feel would benefit the school. This year we are raising funds for new sports equipment, musical instruments and items for the Palingswick playground including seating, planting and lunchtime play equipment

You, your family and friends can start to raise funds for the WLFS immediately by using this easy and effortless fundraising scheme:

Register for free at easyfundraising.org.uk as a supporter and nominate the West London Free School as your cause from the list. All retailers listed will give a percentage of what you spend to the WLFS PTA – with no extra cost to you!
