Friends of Willington Primary School

Over the past year, the Friends of Willington Primary School have been very busy with organising and running different events to raise money to support the children in school.  Without the support of parents and the families of Willington Primary School, some these opportunities and extra additions to the school would not happen.  The money from these events has been used in lots of different ways to benefit the children and this can be seen below.  The Friends of Willington Primary School are always looking for support with these events.  If you are able to spare an hour supporting at an event, or have some ideas about how money could be raised, please do come along to one of the meetings or let your child's teacher know.  Many thanks for your continued support.

Our ‘Friends’ committee is a small but dedicated group of parents, members of staff and members of our community who are full of enthusiasm and good ideas. They meet about once a term and support at school events. The aim is to organise fund raising events throughout the school year to fund extra-curricular events, increase resources and provide funding for new projects.


There have been many successful events in the past, such as Christmas and Summer Fayres, Discos, Chocolate Bingo, Pumpkin Festivals and many, many raffles. Over the last few years, the ‘Friends’ raised funds to improve our library. ‘Friends’ have recently fundraised to provide a wireless projector for the hall, new engaging reading books and are now raising money to replace the trim trail on the field. This will help children be involved in active play and is sure to be a firm favourite at playtimes and lunchtime. Anyone is very welcome to come and join the ‘Friends’ committee at any point throughout the year and we actively encourage new members. Please ask in school about when the next meeting is happening or look out for information in our newsletters or on the Friends of Willington Primary School Facebook page.
