Friends of Woodford Green Primary School
We would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your children. Friends of Woodford Green Primary School replaces the PTA. Therefore, when your children join the school, you as parents, automatically become members of the association. The main aims of the association are to raise funds for the schools and sponsor some special events for the children. Ideally this is to provide extra facilities for the school. However, in the current financial climate with restricted budgets the extra funds may be needed to replace necessary equipment. In either case the funds are used to the direct benefit of your children.
Fundraising is generated through a variety of enjoyable events and schemes including Christmas Bazaar, Summer Fete, cake sales, quiz nights, and many more. We also raise funds through donations from selected companies. We organise some non-fundraising events purely for the children’s enjoyment such as an End of Year Pantomime.
We have a regular slot in the weekly newsletter and details are posted on this site to keep you informed of all the forthcoming events organised by the Friends of Woodford Green Primary (FOWGP). We also have notice boards in the front of the school and will send out reminder text and emails. We try to be as paperless as possible and in future, plan on not sending paper letters out at all.
We hope you will be able to support us as we are all working together to provide the best for our children.
We are always looking for volunteers – any time you can give is greatly appreciated.
If you feel you can volunteer for anything, no matter how small, we would love to hear from you.
