Our Annual General Meeting is on Monday, 23rd September at 7pm in the school hall - all parents and carers are welcome.
At the meeting we will be giving updates on all the monies raised for the school over recent months and what projects we are supporting for the school as well as planning ahead for events coming up this term. This is a great opportunity for new parents and carers to meet up with others and find out about what the PTA is all about.
The Wellfield Infant and Nursery PTA are a very friendly bunch of parents, carers, teachers and school staff who join together to organise fund raising activities to provide ‘extras’ not already provided by the school's main income – often 'fun things' that make learning more interesting and exciting.
The PTA committee is made up of two joint Chairs, a Secretary and Treasurer. The PTA members, Miss Graham and Teachers decide how to spend PTA funds. Common items include subsidy for the coaches for school trips, playground equipment, ipads and smaller purchases such as presents for Father Christmas to distribute, or lights for a Diwali celebration.
There are many different ways you can help with the PTA, whether you have lots of time to offer or just an hour or two. If you can’t commit to a big job, look out for things you can do less frequently (eg running a stall at the summer fair, baking for a cake sale, helping at the discos). And you can always support PTA events by simply turning up to the events we hold.
If you are interested in joining the PTA or helping at one of the upcoming events, please contact any of the committee members direct, email us at wellfieldPTA@googlegroups.com or speak to the School office.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Over the last year the PTA has helped to provide transport for the chour to attend events and for the children to go on trips. They have also funded a Planetarian experience for the Year Two children and a visit from some birds of prey for Reception.
Over the next few months the PTA will be helping to develop the school grounds. The funds will be used to support the addition of a climbing wall and other physical apparatus on the Year Two playground. In addition to this, the PTA have pledged to donate £6000 towards the revamp of our woodland area. This project includes new surfacing and seating, a circular stage and a teepee.
