We have a very active Parent Teacher Association (P.T.A) called the Wellow School Association (W.S.A) which raises thousands of pounds each year to buy equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education.
But it is much, much more than just fundraising! The W.S.A creates closer links between home and school, and brings staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school. And it’s fun!
All parents and members of the school community can get involved if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available. Not all events are run purely as fundraisers. For example, firework night is run with the aim of providing the children and their families and friends with enjoyment and to develop a community spirit.
If you would like to join the WSA or be a ‘helper’ at our events please contact any of the committee members.

At committee meetings we plan what events we want to run, who can organise them, who will help, and how we will spend the money that has been raised.
We are registered with the easyfundraising.org.uk website, the WSA regularly receive cheques as a result of parents using this website to navigate to sites they then purchase online from. In the time we have been registered, the parents who use the easyfundraising website have raised a considerable amount of money. Please remember to keep doing this – it really is money for nothing! Thank you.
Money well spent
It’s a fantastic range of things the WSA fund; here are just a few that the WSA has paid for from the money raised in the past few years:
- Science shows
- The digital piano in the music room
- Cameras for each classroom
- Christmas parties and crackers at Christmas lunch
- Refreshments after church services
- Picnic benches
