PTA news and events
Welcome to the WLPS Parent Teacher Association
The PTA is a group of parents and teachers just like you, who give up some of their time to organise and support school events for our children. The PTA is a way for parents and carers of children WLPS to come together and help support the work of the school.
Without this support WLPS would not be able to have the Christmas Bazaar, craft nights, Discos, Music Soiree, Adventure Island tickets, Cinema nights, The Circus, Easter events or Summer fete & BBQ.
Over the last 5 years, the PTA has raised in excess of £35,000 which has enabled the school to purchase many items outside of the school budget. This includes Year 6 leaver books and 642 books including; phonics, atlas, French dictionaries and many fiction and non-fiction.
The PTA funded the new Outdoor Play and Learning (OPAL) approach for play and lunchtimes. This included the renovation of the school grounds, the building of a sandpit, mud kitchen and digging area, as well as scaffolding planks. The PTA will continue to support the continual development of the outdoor learning area that will benefit every child.

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, our usual events, such as the discos/fetes/gift shops/etc, have had to be paused. We hope to resume them as soon as possible.
In the meantime we are busy thinking of alternative fundraising ideas for our school and we shall keep you posted if and when we find something suitable.
