Parents, Teachers and Friends @Weatherhead

The PTF@Weatherhead meet informally each term to share thoughts on school life and to support or shape events to help the school and families here. Our ideas and fundraising efforts so far have contributed to the behavioural reward scheme IRIS, the Learning Resource Centre, school uniforms, gardening club and most recently to creating a more vibrant outside recreation area. We also seek to champion local initiatives as part of our community role and always seek new ideas and individuals to engage with.

Fundraising

The Parents Teachers and Friends @ Weatherhead (PTF) have been busy raising money for the Weatherhead pupils.

How does the money raised get used?

This is what the PTF have donated to the pupils recently. If you would like more information regarding these donations please contact Suzanne Broster PTF Chair.

Support for Parents

Year 7

As parents ourselves, we know how daunting Year 7 can be for new parents and carers as well as the students. A new school like Weatherhead has so many new aspects and we are here to help make sense of it all.

Year 12

We must not forget that the parents and carers of students new to school in Year 12 might need extra support too. The university open days beckon and student finance looms. Some of us have been there already and can be a useful ally!

We encourage all new parents and carers to come along to one of our informal meetings.

Dates of PTF Meetings are posted on the school calendar and also listed on the weekly Home-School Update.

Usually there will be a representative parent from each year group, or if not, someone who has been through that particular year can help.

PTF meetings will enable you to:

  • Meet with other new parents and friends of Weatherhead
  • Share tales and experience of settling in
  • Discuss any concerns you may have about any aspect of school life
  • Learn more about the Parents, Teachers and Friends @Weatherhead

We all look forward to meeting you!

Goodbye and good luck Michelle Thompson
