PTA (Friends of Wyke)
Who are we?
Friends of Wyke is the PTA of Wyke Primary Academy. We are a group of parents and carers who support the school in various ways by volunteering our time and skills. Mostly we fundraise by holding fun events for children and adults, but we also have other fundraising initiatives as well.
How do we support the school?
At the start of each academic year we ask the Head Teacher what’s on their wishlist for the school. All the teachers contribute ideas to this list, which is available on our FOW website (see below). The wishlist usually contains big items for the school, and has previously included iPads for classrooms and an outdoor running track. This year, we are fundraising to cover the cost of coach hire, so that each class can experience an outing that will enrich their learning, without the burden of increased fuel costs being passed on to their parents and carers.
There are various ways to get involved with supporting Wyke Primary Academy. From volunteering your time to donating cakes, cash or raffle prizes, there is something for everyone.
Become a Class Rep!
Each Class has two Class Reps, who meet with the teacher once a term and act as a communication channel between the parents and teacher. Class Reps also share details of Friends of Wyke events with their year groups, helping us to find volunteers to bake cakes, run stalls, hide Easter Eggs, decorate Christmas Trees… If you’d like more information, please email us at the address below
Become a Trustee!
Being a trustee doesn’t necessarily involve taking on a heavy workload. If you’re interested in finding out more about this role, please get in touch.
Join Friends of Wyke!
As a parent or carer of a Wyke pupil, you are automatically a member of FOW. If you would like to offer practical help but don’t want to commit to a formal role, why not join the FOW WhatsApp group, where you can find out what’s happening and get involved as often or as little as you want.
It is great to see new faces and hear fresh ideas. For any further enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com or speak to your class rep.
Events at Wyke
This year the children have enjoyed activities such as the Halloween Disco, Christmas Fair, Spring Fling Disco and Easter Trail, as well as creating Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gifts.
Please check out our website for upcoming meetings and events.
Did you know?
The school has a Charity Clothing Bank hidden to the left of the Main Entrance. By recycling your textiles here, not only is it convenient, but you’ll also be helping us to raise funds for the school.
