Friends Of The Winchcombe School
The Friends of The Winchcombe School are the PTFA (Parent, Teacher, and Friends Association) for The Winchcombe School. We raise additional funds to give our children a boost to their educational opportunities.
Past fundraising events we have organised include Summer Fetes, Christmas events, Disco's, plus Pre-loved Uniform and Cake sales. The money raised from these events goes towards equipment and activities the school would not normally be able to provide. In the past we have helped fund:
Sound equipment for the hall; Library books; IT equipment;
School Minibuses; Outdoor area play equipment;
Pantomimes; Foundation Stage Starter Bookbags.
All parents, carers and Winchcombe School Staff are considered members of 'FoWS' and we value the support given by everyone involved.
We have a Facebook page so you can 'Like' us and keep up to date with the latest information.
Extra funds can be raised every time you shop online by registering with easyfundraising and making all your online purchases - it costs you nothing and raises money for the school, no effort required!
To continue to thrive and enable us to run events to raise more funds, we need more families to join us!
We are looking for more volunteers!
If you would like to join the committee, to volunteer at our events, help us with matched funding, or you just simply want to contact us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Parentkind's model constitution has been written in conjunction with specialist charity lawyers and the Charity Commission and is best practice for all associations.
It was agreed to adopt the ParentKind constitution (above) at the AGM on Wednesday 12th February 2020.
What is a Constitution?
Each association should have a Constitution that states the purpose of the association, and rules and regulations that the committee members should be following. It provides structure for your committee members, giving clear guidance on how the association should be run. Usually it's adopted at an AGM.
Who needs to see it?
All committee members should be aware of the Constitution, each committee member should have a copy.
