The Friends of West Lea

Just like every other Parent Teacher Association, our main role is fundraising. Through all sorts of fun events and activities, we help raise those valuable, extra amounts that buy additional equipment and make school life at West Lea extra special. So please keep an eye on our calendar of events and come and support us!

Of course, our events do so much more than simply raise funds for the benefit of West Lea pupils, they offer a wonderful opportunity for you to meet other West Lea parents as well as members of our wider community!

As a PTA  we also provide an important link between parents and school staff, working together to create the best possible learning environment for our children; an environment that stimulates, nurtures and encourages their development – academically, socially and personally.

Best of all, as a West Lea parent, you are already a member of the PTA. So whether it’s helping out at events, or helping to make them successful by coming along with your friends and family, make sure you join in the fun.

If you would like to find out about joining our committee, would like to help out at future events, or simply want to know more about us, please send an email to –

We’d love to hear from you!
