Parents of Featherstone Wood   


Get involved with the PTA and help raise much needed funds

New members always welcome


On Friday the 6th July we are holding a and fun afternoon after Sports Day.  We are looking for any volunteers to help on the day.  Please leave your name at the office if you can spare any time



Our new committee members are:

CHAIR - Jo Mallam
VICE TREASURER - Robert Clarke
SECRETARY - Sarah Poulter


Thank you to everyone who was able to attend the meeting on Monday 12th September,  we will be running future meetings on a monthly basis. Dates will be posted on the website and our face book page. These meetings are to discuss ideas for future events for the children and to raise money to provide them with activities and equipment that they will enjoy.

We have lots of exciting events coming up and we hope that you would like to participate in some or all of the activites.  We are in great need for new members to continue the POFW great work. It is not essential to attend all meetings or all of the activities; any help you can give will be greatly received. Without the continued help of parents, grandparents and carers we could not continue the PTA.

We are always on the lookout for new ideas to raise money or things the children would like to participate in, so please feel free to drop us a line or pin your suggestions on the board by the office.

Our facebook page is parents of Featherstone Wood.

Thank you 

Sarah Poulter

PoFW is much more than just fundraising…

PoFW aims to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents, family and friends together socially in support of our children and the school.

PoFW is a fun and encouraging way to meet new parents and carers.

PoFW plan various fundraising events throughout the year to help support the children, staff and the school environment.

We hold cake sales, non-school uniform days, organise school discos and help to serve refreshments on special school event days.


Last year the PoFW were very busy with events to support the children and staff at Featherstone Wood.

  • In October we raised £222.65p at the spooky disco and dress up day, the pupils really had a great time playing games, dancing and winning prizes.


Supporting the school:

  • PoFW are financing portable outside chairs for children that can be used at sports day and other outside events.

  • PoFW have offered to finance new navity play costumes for key stage one pupils.

  • We are very fortunate to have been given some great donations from local business and we would like to say thank you to them all!

You can get involved with PoFW:

We understand that you may not be able to attend PoFW meetings but perhaps there is some other way of being involved? We tend to meet once a month on a Friday.

Can you donate your time or expertise at one of our fundraising events?

Do you know someone who has a local business who would be willing to donate a raffle prize or give us a discount towards a product?

If you would like to be involved, then please contact one of our committee members and he/she will be able to tell you what’s going on or where help is needed. Alternatively you can leave us a note via the school office or join our Facebook page @ parents of Featherstone wood.

Keep a look out on the website as we will be updating information about news and events.

We look forward to meeting you!
