Introduction to The PTA

All Parents, Guardians & Staff are members of the PTA, and are welcome to any committee meetings.



It has been a very busy period for the PTA. On a cold and dark evening way back in February we held our first hybrid meeting, with half of us sat in the lovely warm Brewers with a drink in hand, and the rest of us signing in on TEAMS, we think it went pretty well, and hope that this will make joining the PTA and attending meetings more accessible for all.

If you are interested in joining the PTA, email us at contactpta@wanboroughprimary.org for more information. With the clocks springing forward it seems a different time from when it was getting dark not long after getting home from school. The PTA is very much looking forward to getting some summer dates in the diary for events.

At the meeting on the 23rd February, the PTA voted to go with a "Tri-Chair" model and voted in not one but three new chairs. We are very excited with their vision and plans for the future.

Our new Chairs jumped straight into planning and we are happy to con-firm that we will be holding the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 discos on the 9th of June, and that the much loved Wanborough Primary School summer fete will be held on Saturday 15th July.

Please pop these dates in your diary and further information will be sent around nearer to the time. Also we now have a really strong Chair team, but we are still looking for that special person or special people who have a head for numbers.

Could you be our next PTA Treasurer or Co-Treasurer? If this is a position that interests you and you would like to find out more information please email us contactpta@wanboroughprimary.org.

Meet Our Chairs

Our new Chairs are all parents of children in year one. Mel Rodriquez's eldest son joined Wanborough Primary School in September 2021, Mel has jumped straight into planning with our Easter hot cross bun sale.

Becki James youngest son also started in September 2021, but with her eldest already being through the whole School, Becki is really familiar with the school and all the events that we usually host at the school.

Finally Christian Kociuba's son also joined Wanborough Primary School in September 2021, Christian has already been in the school helping with the Erasmus project Small Steps to a Better World and assisted in the workshop to install a rain planter next to the library.

Christmas Movie Night

We are really pleased to confirm that whilst being a lot of fun our film night just before Christmas managed to raise just over £550.

Thank you everyone who came. We hope to bring you news shortly on some of the things that this money will be spent on.


We kick started our events for 2023 with a hot cross bun sale this morning, and we can-not thank you enough for all coming in the rain to buy our hot cross buns, toast and hot chocolate. This is the first time we have done this, and we are so grateful for all the support.

A huge thanks to Sainsbury's who donated us 100 hot cross buns, and the hot chocolate. This donation, as well as the donation of bread, butter, milk and mini marsh-mallow from Mel one of our new Chairs saw us raise over £100.

This money will be used to buy all the children a commemorative gift to mark the upcoming King's coronation.

So thank you to everyone who bought a tasty snack or a warming drink this morning. Happy Easter!!

Ways to help us without spending money?

Do you work for a company that offers "match-funding" or a similar volunteering scheme, ask around and let us know contactpta@wanboroughprimary.org.

We are already aware that Nationwide, Barclays, Burmah Castrol and Aviva do and through their schemes we have managed to significantly add to the money we have raised over the years.

Can you donate a prize for our summer fete raffle?

Every year we host a big raffle which has previously had some amazing prizes, is a prize something your company could donate? Could you company sponsor a prize? We name all companies, organisations and businesses that help us raise money for the school. The biggest prizes get named on the raffle tickets. However all prizes are equally important as they all help us to gather interest and sell tickets.

If you have a prize for our raffle, please email us contactpta@wanboroughprimary.org.

Donate whilst you shop

Are you signed up to Easyfundraising?

With the ending of Amazon Smile we have lost a fund-raising avenue, however Easyfundraising offers an easy, accessible and continual way for us to raise free funds.

Big brands like Tesco, Amazon, M&S and 7,000 others want to give back to schools. When someone shops at one of these brands online, the brand will donate a percentage of what you spend to the PTA. It's like using a cashback site but the funds come to the PTA rather than an individual.

Once you have signed up to Easyfundraising this is how it works: you want to buy new shoes for your kids, instead of heading directly to the Clark's website, you head to the Easyfundraising website or app first and then click on the Clark's link. Once the purchase is made because you went to Easyfundraising first, we will receive a percentage of your spend directly... It's easy!
