All Weald CPS parents, carers, guardians and teaching staff are automatically members of this body. It is a registered charity that aims to advance the education of the children and support the staff of the school. This is achieved through fundraising events, social occasions and open and constructive school-home partnership.
The PTA meets monthly at the school and the date and agenda are published in advance. It aims to be open, accountable and democratic in its decision-making.

The Head Teacher’s View….
Weald Community Primary School is blessed with a highly active and well-supported PTA which organises a wide variety of social events and fundraising projects to benefit the school community.
Innovative ideas coupled with meticulous planning and hard work mean that the Weald PTA is able to deliver a rich mix of activities including the Christmas Fair, Summer Fete, Quiz Night, Dragon-boat racing on Bewl water and much more. The expertise and experience of parents from many walks of life are harnessed to form creative and committed teams of volunteers. The substantial sums of money raised have a valuable impact on the educational provision of the children. In recent times, PTA projects have funded the construction of a Multi-Use Games Area/Playground; a Jungle Gym; the installation of Wi-Fi and multifarious items of sports and other equipment. All of these developments are closely linked to priorities contained within the School Improvement Plan.
The partnership between home and school at Weald is clearly exemplified through the interest and dedication of the PTA. Owing to the strength and vitality of this relationship, we are able to look to the future with a true sense of optimism and collegiality.
