Welcome to the Friends of East Wittering Community Primary School (aka PTA)
Who We Are
The 'Friends' otherwise known as Parent Teacher Friend Association are a group of volunteers who have at some point had connections to the school. Members can be both current and former parents, grandparents, Godparents, teachers or members of the local community. Our current committee members all have children at the school.
Our committee consists of:
Jodie Hennessy - Chair
Jurgita Mikolaitaine - Treasurer
Neil Thomas - Committee Member
Please feel free to contact us: Email - firstname.lastname@example.org
Please follow our Facebook page which can be found by searching 'Friends of East Wittering Community Primary School.'
The Friends work very hard to provide support to the school, to help to improve conditions, facilities and the social environment for the children through raising much needed funds. The PTA helps raise money to support your school, so the school can give the children the best education possible.

How have we spent the money we’ve raised?
Sometimes the Government just does not give us enough funds to fulfil the school’s needs, so we have been able to provide items to give a little “extra” to the pupils. Here are some of the things we have spent the money on.
We bought a Christmas tree for the school, Christmas crackers and provided a Christmas Fair, Santa’s Grotto and paid for half of the panto tickets.
We sold ice lollies at Sports Day. We provided a Summer Fair, end of year disco.
Play equipment for reception.
Visualisers and provided funds for External Speakers to come to the school for year 3/4
A plaque for the new daily mile track.
We will be contributing towards the 2022 leavers hoodies and Leaver’s activity week.
