Who are we?
Wray School PTA is a voluntary organisation made up of parents and guardians of the children attending Wray Endowed Primary School, and the teaching staff. You will automatically become a member of the PTA, unless you choose to opt out. All members are welcome to attend any meetings that are held, vote on proposals and make suggestions for spending or raising funds.
PTA meetings are held once a term, the dates and venues of all forthcoming meetings will appear on the website and in the Friday bag. We are aware that many people are very busy and may not be able to attend these meetings due to lack of childcare or work commitment’s, that is why we aim to vary the time of these meetings, as well as providing voting forms and details to allow everyone the opportunity to vote on any expenditure, regardless of attendance.
PTA will provide minutes of all meetings, and a financial report every term, these can be viewed on the website.
The aim of the PTA is to enhance the education and well-being of the children of Wray School. This is done by providing resources and activities for the children.
