Friends of Western Road

Friends of Western Road (FOWR)


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 FOWR and everyone is welcome to attend FOWR meetings. FOWR is run by an elected committee who organise fundraising and fun events to raise money for the school.


FOWR have paid for new interactive white boards in classrooms, a mud kitchen for the reception garden, outside learning equipment for KS1, fun 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 December in Lewes Town Hall, it is professionally run by a team of parents and is supported by FOWR. It raises a huge amount of money for the school and is a fantastic event.


Regular events FOWR run include the Halloween and Easter Discos, Christmas and Summer Fairs, parent’s Quiz and Bingo nights, second hand uniform sales and other fun events. Please follow our Facebook and Instagram page and check the newsletters for the latest news.


A big thank you to all of you who support our events – we are a committee of 13 people but lots of parents and carers help us make every event a success. Please come to a meeting or catch one of us in the playground if you want to find out more about FOWR.

Committee members: Irena Wooler, Cris Winter, Nadine Willcoxs, Lucy Foss, Holly Atkins, Donna Ross, Sandrine Case, Natasha Caughey, Michelle Hockey and Susie Ballentyne.
