ALL ABOUT US:
Friends of Wellgate is a group for family, friends and carers of children attending Wellgate Primary School. We aim to raise funds to purchase resources and support children in school.
FOW is run in conjunction with the Teaching Team – Mrs Eaton, Mrs Lyman, Miss Slater, Mrs Carver, Miss Binns and Mrs Nicholson and also our Parental Team – Mrs Littledyke, Mrs Snelling, Mrs Curry, Mrs Liska and Mrs Sharp.
Everyone is welcome to get involved – anything from half an hour here and there to help organise a raffle/tombola, listen to children read or to help organise larger events such as the Christmas Fayre.
Support Friends of Wellgate events by donating unwanted items and buying tickets is also a huge bonus.
The group meets on the second Monday of each term at 3.30pm. There is no obligation to attend a meeting as Facebook, texts and the school blog will be used to keep everyone up to date.
If you have some time and would like to get involved, please contact any of the FOW team or alternatively fill in a form at the school office.
We have had great successes with our projects and we were able to:
- Buy a digital camera for each year group
- Buy a digital Video Camera for the school
- Fund part of the Wild Wood developments
- Buy books for school
- Subsidise the fees for school trips in each year group
- Purchase a polytunnel for the school
- Buy laptops and iPads for the children in school to use in lesson time
