When you’re welcomed into the Wilcombe family we welcome you to the Wilcombe PTFA. At Wilcombe Primary we consider all parents, carers and staff to be members of our PTFA and warmly welcome anyone who wants to help at events or has new ideas to bring to meetings. Please come to our meetings, it is a social event where we share ideas and discuss upcoming events. PTFA needs your ideas and/or help at the events to make them successful so that we can raise lots of money for your children.
We are currently raising money to go towards climbing equipment for the new playground as well as other things that arise.
Please remember that PTFA stands for Parents, Teachers, Family/Friends Association, so please feel free to bring someone along.
Chair – Graham Cossey (Staff)
Secretary – Kristy Baggot (Parent)
Treasurer – Claire Dyer (Parent) and
Kelly Triggs (Staff) Both my daughters attended the school and I already helped out at PTA events. However, this year I wanted to have a more active role in the running of the PTA and am looking forward to my year as Secretary and Treasurer.
Please feel free to come and find us.
Our new PTFA board is located inside the main doors on the right-hand side. This will display meeting times, upcoming events and money raised thermometer as well as much more.
There will be a folder at reception for you to place any ideas or our PTFA website email is WilcombePTFA@ventrus.org.uk
Thanks to all the donations of Easter eggs raised through non-uniform day, the Easter Bingo was a great success. We had a better turn out than expected which gave us a good atmosphere and made a great profit.
Thank you to Tiverton Town Football Club and Dot for providing the Bingo machine and tickets.
Our 2018 Fete was a huge success!
We were so lucky to have had amazing sunshine on our side.
The variety of stalls, PTFA’S and people from the community that supported our event, as well as the Bar, Mad Mikes, Face painting, Bubble Football, performances in the main ring and piccolo pizza co who helped make it a great success. We would like to thank each and everyone who attended. We would like to extend a massive thank you to the fire brigade who brought their fire engine up for the children and the community to explore and get hands-on with the fire hose.
Thank you to the members of the community for supporting our event, without you we would not have raised as much money as we did.
We welcome your support again next year!

This year instead of a Summer Fete the PTA organised a Jubilee Celebration in conjunction with Sunningmead Community Centre. Held over both sites this was a whole community event and was a great success. There was entertainment, a bar, BBQ, as well as the usual stalls such as tombola, candy floss, bouncy castles, wellie wanging and a raffle to name but a few.
The main arena at Wilcombe School site also offered traditional games, for both children and adults, such as a sack race, egg and spoon race, as well as tug of war. The tug of war proved hugely popular with parents when the staff fielded a team!
