Your Balksbury PTA 

At Balksbury Federation, the Infant and Junior Schools have a joint Parent Teacher Association working together to raise funds for resources, equipment and activities for all year groups.


Main Members of the Committee


Stacey Knight: Chair of the PTA


I started working with the PTA as a volunteer before becoming Chair last year. I was re-elected at this year’s AGM and am looking forward to bringing some exciting events to the federation this year. I have three children, one in Year 3, one in nursery and my stepson, who is currently in his second year of college. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, reading and going to the cinema.

Zarra Wilkins: Vice Chair of the PTA & Staff Representative


As well as Vice Chair and staff representative of the PTA, I have been supporting the Balksbury federation as an LSA for over five years. I absolutely love my job and you will rarely see me without a smile on my face. I have twins in Year 6 and am best known for my love of any food beginning with the letter C. One of my other passions is music and in my spare time I sing in a rock/covers band.

Kellie Pettengell: Treasurer


As well as Treasurer of the Balksbury Federation PTA, I am a mother of four, Nanna of two granddaughters and a part-time Accounts Administrator for a local electrical contractor. I have been supporting the Balksbury Federation PTA since 2018. My youngest son is currently in Year 5 and I also have a granddaughter in year 1. One of my main enjoyments is reading, whenever I get the chance!


Trisha Williams: Secretary

I have recently been elected as Secretary for the PTA. I have been a volunteer for just over a year now and lots of you have probably seen me regularly at our treat sales! I have 2 children, a son in John Hanson and a daughter in year 3. I love all things spooky and enjoy cuddles with my 4 cats!
