PTA

Welcome to the South Wilford PTA!       
 

 

   

About the PTA 

The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is a group of parents and carers who volunteer their time to work together, alongside teachers, to organise fund-raising events for the school. These events provide a great opportunity for parents and children to socialise out of school hours and have fun. The funds that we raise through our events are donated to school to enhance the children’s experiences and to buy some of the ‘extras’ that the budget can’t stretch to.

 

The current members of the PTA are:

Chair: Shelley Pasiak

Treasurer: Kayleigh Leake

Secretary: Jillian Davis

Health and Safety: Damilola Awojide

Staff representative: Cat Lazenby (EYFS Lead)

Other committee members: Manuela Bohatsch, Jennie Maybury, Abbey Potter, Sophie and Chris Glover, Lindsey Guthrie, Michelle Boyce, Helen Cosgrove, Deborah Hinds.
