Friends of West Rise

This is the name of our group of supporters. Friends of West Rise is a registered charity. A small group of trustees run the charity with help from parents and staff. All our staff, parents and carers are members of the Friends.

Together we:

  • raise funds for the school
  • provide refreshments and help at school events, like sports days and school plays
  • support national events like Children in Need 

We hold regular events to raise funds. These include discos, Christmas fairs, Easter egg raffles, tombolas, sponsored spelling and times tables competitions.

How we use the funds

We purchase items for the school to improve play facilities and the school environment. In the past these included: 

  • the adventure trail
  • picnic benches
  • books for the library
  • digital cameras
  • televisions and 
  • audio equipment

Every year the Friends pay for a theatre company to visit so all the children can see a pantomime at school.

The Friends began in the Year 2000.  Our Registered Charity No is 1014785
