Friends of Woodfield

The Friends of Woodfield (FoW) is just that – a committee of staff and parents working together for the good of the school. FoW is a bridge between the school and parents and draws them together in a common goal – making Woodfield Academy the best it can be.

The majority of Friends of Woodsfield’s work focuses on fundraising but linked into this is a social aspect – with family fun days or quiz/bingo nights, fetes and fairs. The children and parents and teachers are given a way to enjoy the social aspects of school life and also feel part of the wider community of Redditch. The FoW has a core committee – a team of dedicated organisers who set all the wheels in motion for the main fundraising events and extra-curricular activities provided. The Committee meet on a regular basis – anyone is able to join and new members are always welcome.

Most of the events we run are for fund-raising purposes our Summer Fayre is a very popular date on the school calendar, along with the Christmas Fayre and our annual Christmas Raffle. It’s a wonderful occasion for families to socialise whilst giving something back to the school. FoW are always delighted with any parental help they can get, so if you are able to volunteer at events get in touch!

The children’s discos, held in the school hall, are always a huge hit with the children. Throughout the year we have other events or activities – fantastic bingo nights to name but one, but if there are any budding fundraisers out there, bursting with fresh ideas, we’d love to hear them!
