Parent/Carer Teachers Association (PTA)
About the PTA - raising money to enhance our children's education and support our community.
As parents/carers at the school, we are all automatically eligible to be part of the Parents/ Carers Teachers Association (PTA). The two main activities of the PTA are to fundraise for the development of the schools and to hold events to build the community spirit of the two schools.
We do this through a varied mix of events and initiatives: child events (like Coin Snake and Movie Night), parent/carer events (like the Art Show and Quiz & Auction Night) and our family events (Winter & Summer Fairs and the Easter Egg Hunt).
We can only make these events happen with your help and support. Every year as our schools grow, we are looking to strengthen our PTA. Please help us to make this year the most successful to date.

Other ways to support
Easyfundraising - you can raise funds simply by shopping online. All you need to do is register on the Easyfundraising site and then when you purchase from selected retailers they will donate to the school.
Direct Debit - set up a voluntary direct debit donation to the PTA every month. There is no obligation to do this; however, every penny raised to the PTA gets spent on important enhancements the schools can’t pay for out of their traditional funding. You can give a few pounds if that’s all you can afford but if you can spare a little more then there is no maximum limit.
The Earl’s Court and West London Free School Primary dedicated Direct Debit form can be filled in online >> Set up your Direct Debit now >>. Please share this with friends and family too.
