The Parent Teacher Association at Widford School is called the ‘Friends of Widford School’ or more commonly, FOWS. It comprises an enthusiastic group of parents and friends who work to provide social and fund raising functions for the children and families who attend Widford School.
FOWS and the school staff work closely together to plan and run a programme of fun activities throughout the school year. Some of our annual events include a Christmas Wrap, Non-School Uniform days, Quiz night and a Summer fete in the summer! Not only have these events been enjoyable for all participants but they have been very lucrative to the school.
The money raised from these events then goes towards extras for the benefit of everyone at school. In the past, FOWS have helped to fund school trips, build our new resource room, purchase computers and many other items which have been of great help in building improving our small village school. FOWS also fund the Christmas entertainment for the whole school, which ranges from ice skating to the panto!
An Annual General Meeting is held in the autumn of each year. All parents and friends are invited to attend and are welcome to sign up as committee members or helpers for future events. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the school and they will put you in touch with a FOWS member.
