Friends of Winterslow School (FOWS)

Welcome to the PTA section


What Do We Do?

There is a thriving, energetic ‘Friends’ association at our school. We arrange fundraising events throughout the year, and we try to make the events as enjoyable as we can whilst trying to raise as much money as possible. Some of the events are not fund raising but just for enjoyment, for example the children’s disco.


The money raised in recent years has bought many extra items and facilities, which the school would otherwise not have been able to afford. These include:


  • new computer equipment,
  • additional reading scheme and library books,
  • ‘Early Years’ and other classroom equipment,
  • benches and flower tubs for the playground,
  • building improvements and extensions to paved areas outside some classrooms, as well as to the Millennium garden project
  • The Play Trail
  • Subsidising school outings
  • Substantial contributions to the swimming pool project


Tea and Coffee -Yes please!
This very popular social event runs on a monthly basis on a Friday afternoon, monies raised from these events go to each class in turn where the teacher discusses with the children how this extra funding can help enhance their learning environment.



Second Hand Uniform

Second hand school uniform is available through Friends of Winterslow School PTA (FOWs). Periodically throughout the year parents will be asked to donate any good quality second hand uniform to us. This will be available at certain events for a donation back to FOWs. These events will be advertised through the school and on Facebook, but should you wish to purchase some at another time (or make a donation) please contact
