PTA (Parent Teacher Association)
The WLFS PTA’s primary aim is to create a strong supportive school community by holding events and fundraising activities which include parents, carers, pupils and teachers. We develop and maintain a wide range of events, some to build community and some to raise much needed funds for our school. 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 she and the staff feel would benefit the school.
We recently held a very successful auction, with the support of WLFS families and local businesses, and we were able to raise £23,000. These funds are already being put towards various projects and requirements for the school. We have currently approved the purchase of desktop computers for the Art Department along with photoshop licenses; 10 pupil laptops; DNA Modification Equipment for our Year 11s; supplies for the school libraries, both at Franklin House and Palingswick House; iPads for the Maths Department to allow for classes to be more interactive and upgrades to Common Areas at Franklin House, along with a range of other items.
Please Join Us!
All parents and carers are welcome to PTA meetings, and you will find that you can contribute in some way, depending on the level of involvement you want.
Due to Covid 19 we are only meeting virtually at present, but are really keen to find ways to continue to build our community online. Any offers are welcome and there are many roles to play.
Please contact us with your offers, suggestions or feedback at email@example.com.
