Friends of Western Road
Friends of Western Road (FWR)
The Friends of Western Road is the school’s Parent-Teacher Association and is a registered charity. All parents and carers with a child at Western Road are automatically members of FWR and everyone is welcome to attend FWR meetings. FWR is run by an elected committee who organise fundraising and fun events to raise money for the school.
FWR have paid for the complete refurbishment of the EYFS outdoor area and classroom, new interactive whiteboards in classrooms, outside learning equipment for Key Stage One, fun and amazing trips for each class to go on, yoga lessons for the whole school, the Easter Egg hunt, children’s Christmas lunch, Year 6 end of SATS celebration and lots of other things.
Artists and Makers is a hugely successful fundraising event that happens every year; it is professionally run by a team of parents and is supported by FWR. It raises a huge amount of money for the school and is a fantastic event.
Regular events FWR run include the Halloween and Easter Discos, Christmas and Summer Fairs, parents' quiz and auction nights, second hand uniform sales, ice-cream Fridays and other fun events. Please follow our Facebook and Instagram page (@F_o_w_r) and check the newsletters for the latest news.
A big thank you to all of you who support our events – not just the committee but lots of parents and carers help us make every event a success.
We are looking for new members! If you’d like to join our friendly team of parent and staff volunteers, then please speak to one of the Committee members or send us an email.
