Home School Support

Parents-info

Eden Taddese is our Home School Support Worker.  You will find her on the ground floor in the Parents’ Room between the hall and the Nursery. Eden is in school every day and is able to discuss any concerns that you may have about your child’s education, behaviour, homework or anything else that might be affecting their education.

Eden organises Thursday Coffee Mornings for parents.  These take place in the Parents’ Room between 9am and 11am.  The agenda is decided at the beginning of each term.  All parents are very welcome to attend.

Parent and Teacher Association (PTA) 

Edward Wilson Primary School has a very active PTA. The PTA committee is made up of a PTA chair, secretary and our Home School Support Worker. Together the committee leads the PTA (staff and parent representatives) to co-ordinate events and fundraise. Its main aims will be to help to strengthen community links in anyway possible.

The PTA holds discussions about ways of improving the school. It is also used as a way of communicating messages from the school to the parents and extended community.

The wider team of PTA members supports the PTA committee. Members contribute to meetings, to plan events and help out regularly. Our members are invaluable – without them our fairs and cultural events simply wouldn’t happen.
