What We Do
The Friends of WCPS provide additional funding for the school and organise social events to bring people together.
Our annual events include themed Discos, an Easter Egg Hunt, Christmas Fayre and our Summer Fete. We also support school run events, like the annual Books and Bangers evening by serving refreshments, and organise the sale of pupil designed Christmas cards and Tea towels to raise funds.
We also fund ad-hoc requests from the school for specific items. For example, in Autumn 2017 we provided an oven for Reception to facilitate easy and plentiful access to baking.
In addition we have long-term fundraising goals for bigger projects within the school.

What have the Friends funded in recent years?
  • Additional reading books for the school
  • Stage lighting for the school Hall
  • Reception class outdoor climbing equipment.
  • Christmas tree, Christmas crackers and chocolates for the school Christmas meal
  • Funds for a Christmas party for each class
  • Goal posts
  • Subsidise performances within the school from outside groups
  • Subsidise school trips
  • Year 6 Leavers gifts (a choice of sweatshirt or memory book)
