About the PTA


PTA Logo

Wickham Common Primary School's Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is actively involved in the life of the school. All staff, parents and carers at the school are always welcome to attend meetings and get involved in social events and fund-raising activities.


The object of the PTA is to advance the education of the pupils at the school in the following ways:


  • By developing effective relationships between the staff, parents, and others associated with the school;
  • By engaging in events and providing facilities or equipment which support the school and advance the education of the pupils.
  • Helping ensure that the children have fun and enjoy their time at Wickham Common through social events and other PTA sponsored activities.


The PTA is a registered charity (registration number 1044371).  The PTA Committee, which includes parents, staff and governors, is elected by members annually and is responsible for decisions relating to the Association and its funds.


The PTA's Constitution, which is approved by the Charities Commission, is available here.


Getting Involved


All classes in the school have parent volunteers who act as Class Representatives. In addition to providing a vital link between parents, staff and the PTA Committee, the Class Reps keep other parents informed of PTA discussions and decisions and help to organise PTA events and fund-raising activities.


As a Charity and voluntary Association the PTA can only achieve as much as the commitment of its membership allows. We invite all parents, carers and staff to consider getting involved and helping in whatever way they can to help us support Wickham Common, more details on our Volunteering page.
