Friends of Wardour

Welcome to Friends of Wardour

Over the past few years, FOW have raised in excess of £22,000, some of which has been spent on various projects, such as the library refurbishment, new computers, the garden shed, Forest school equipment and a successful arts week. None of these things would be possible if it wasn’t for the parents and extended families of the school.  Every penny you can donate, cake you bake or even an hour of your expertise to help build veg beds or mud kitchens are crucial to providing the school with “the frosting on the cupcakes” that help them nurture our children. With government funding cuts its becoming more and more important for our schools to be supported by fundraising. 

There are some very easy ways you can help like https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk where you join up, download the app and select Wardour as your chosen charity. Every time you book a flight, holiday or Christmas shop online through the app the school gets a percentage of the total... PLEASE join up to this scheme.. every little helps. 

Every parent is automatically a Friend of Wardour. Come to our coffee mornings, fun runs, auctions, cake sales, kids discos and raise money for the school whilst having fun.

Get in touch with any of the class reps below if you have a brilliant fundraising idea or want to help out.

FOW Communications are mainly through class rep, emails out to all parents (always good to let your rep know you received their email), Friends of Wardour Facebook page, and also the ever brilliant school PING.  (Please see Mrs Robson if you haven’t already joined PING and downloaded the app. It is vital to the schools communications with all parents). 

September 2021

Hello and welcome to the new school year.

My Name is Sam Clayton and I am the new Chairperson of FOW.  I have big shoes to fill from Chairpersons past!!! To let you know a little bit about me. I have two daughters, Martha who has just left year 6 at Wardour and gone to South Wilts, also Bessie who is currently in year 5. I work at Dinton Pre School and am very lucky to be able to enjoy seeing some of our little pre-school children join Wardour reception class over the last 4 years and watch them all grow in confidence and personality, helped by the wonderful staff at Wardour School.

I would like to thank everyone for their support of FOW last year. It was a very difficult year for all involved.  Georgie Wessels who was our previous chairperson, she did a wonderful job with the help of the committee members keeping everything going behind the scenes, a huge thank you to them all.

All parents and carers of children attending the school are members of the association FOW, Friends of Wardour. We assist school in different ways, like all PTAs they raise funds to help finance purchases not covered by statutory funds. Without volunteers we wouldn’t have a PTA or be able to support the school. The school is lucky to have so many wonderful parents who volunteer to help with events by making cakes, providing raffles prizes, running stalls, cake sales and assisting in so many ways. This support is invaluable, if you feel you would like to volunteer, please contact your class rep to let them know.

Each year group has a class rep that they can talk to and find out information about the school. Your class rep is a great way to connect with other parents and their children in your class. There are class chat groups that you can join, if you have not yet joined and would like to, please contact your class rep.

Class Representatives, Reception  Stephanie with Isabel,  Year 1  Pepa with Amalia,  Year 2 Laura with Freddie,  Year 3 Tanya with Georgia & Jo with Henry,   Year 4 Chloe with Monty,  Year 5  Avon with Saoirse, Year 6  Kate with Martha & Lucy with Arthur,

We are hoping to be able to run some fundraising events this year keeping in line with Covid guidance. We are always looking for new, fun and exciting ideas to raise money for the school, so please contact myself or your class rep with your ideas. In the past we have had, secret Wardour art sales, car boot sales, quiz nights and regular cakes, pizza and ice lolly sales from our playground shelter. We are hoping to have a coffee and cake social event to introduce the new parents to Wardour School, Further details will be sent out soon.

Many thanks for all your support, Friends of Wardour Committee.
