Fir Tree School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) works tirelessly to organise fundraising events to enhance the school curriculum. We raise money to pay for extra classroom supplies, play equipment and treats for the children.


We raise money by holding events such as the Christmas Craft Fayre and Summer Fete, running Bingo and Quiz Nights, holding cake sales, and helping with community events such as the Wallingford Fireworks.


Typically, each year the PTA pays for:

  • £100 for each class
  • Memory boxes for new children
  • Gardener and pond maintenance
  • First News subscription
  • Leavers’ party
  • End-of-year ice creams


We have successfully raised money for new staging for plays and concerts, additional tools for the kitchen garden, books and a portable PA system. in addition to these the resurfacing around one of the climbing frames, Bhangra drumming days, new cameras for each classroom, sunshades for the picnic tables and equipping the very popular Forest Fridays.


PTA has also funded and created the new school pond, complete with plants and frogs and contributed to the purchase of recorders for all new year 3 children.


We are successful as we all work together so if you would like to get involved please contact Morag McCracken, chair of the PTA via the school office and your email will be directed to her.


We are pleased to announce the launch of an Amazon Wishlist. It has been populated with items that the school and individual classrooms would like.

Once purchased items are removed from the Wishlist but we would encourage recycling of anything that you have at home that is no longer needed - please mark it as purchased from elsewhere or let us know so we can remove it from the list.


There is absolutely no obligation to buy from Amazon.


Getting involved:

We meet three times a year to plan how to raise and spend money. If you would like to get involved, come along to one of the meetings, email us at or speak with any one of the committee members.

The PTA sends out a termly newsletter with details of upcoming events. We also have a Facebook page  ( where we keep you up to date.
