Waingroves Primary School

Think. Do. Achieve

Waingroves Primary School Parent, Teacher, Family/Friends Association (PTFA)

The Waingroves P.T.F.A in school is for every parent and everyone is automatically a member.

Parents, governors, staff, and members of the local community work together to raise funds for much needed equipment (we also have a lot of fun doing it!).

We are always keen for more parents to become involved – please do consider giving up spare time for your school.  It usually involves only half termly meetings which are usually less than one hour after school and helping out at various functions.


Co-Chairs - Sarah Somerset and Sarah Byrne

Vice Chair - Rachel Birkett

Secretary - Sarah Marshall

Acquisitions/Purchasing - Charlotte Dennis

Treasurer - Sarah Somerset

Waingroves Primary School PTFA Tote

The WPS Tote is a rewarding an effective way of fundraising. Parents are offered the opportunity of ‘buying’ numbers at a cost of 10p per number, per week. These numbers then go into a weekly prize draw and winners are drawn at random, on a Wednesday, each school week. Prizes are either £5, £4 or £3.

All money collected (minus the weekly winnings!) goes towards buying something extra that the children would like or need.

You do not need to send any money in straight away. Initially we just need to know if you would like to join and how many numbers you would like. Mrs Davies, who runs the tote, will send a note when the money is due, and payment can either be made by cash or cheque. Payments can be made half termly or you can pay for the full year in one go.

There are 39 Wednesdays in the current academic year (2022-23) so one number will cost £3.90 for the whole year, two numbers will cost £7.80, 3 number £11.70, and so on.
