Whytemead Primary School

PTA Friends of Whytemead

Hello and welcome to the PTA Friends of Whytemead page.

Want to help raise funds and organise fantastic events for your child’s school?

You’re in the right place!

Whytemead PTA/Friends of Whytemead organise a series of fab events throughout the year. In the past we’ve put on:

  • The Christmas Fair
  • The Summer Fair
  • Movie nights
  • Easter bunny bounce
  • Quiz nights
  • Discos
  • Preloved uniform sales


Each of these events are a brilliant way of bringing families, carers, teachers and pupils together as a community, with the added bonus of raising money to support the school.

We’ve raised funds and provided the school with a number of extra resources over the years. If you’d like to help out, the PTA would love to include you. There’s no set roles or responsibilities and even if you can only help out once a year, that’s a huge help.

Unlike some other PTAs, there is no one person in charge. Currently there is a group of about 5-6 of us who do the general running and organising of the events, and which you are welcome to join. But we always need extra hands and we are grateful for any help you can offer us. And if you have new ideas, so much the better!

Anyone is welcome be it parent, carer, extended family or friends. A few examples of how you can help include:

  • Helping prepare Christmas Hampers
  • Manning a stall at the Summer Fair
  • Collecting bits from Bookers
  • Cooking sausages/ wrapping tombola prizes/ folding tombola tickets in preparation for the Fairs
  • Discussing ideas for any of the events, or for new ways of fundraising


If you’d like to help out, do drop us a line at WhytemeadPTA@gmail.com


We also post in the Whytemead Mums and Dads Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/648269235284819) so keep an eye out for our updates.


We look forward to meeting you!
