By Jo watson, Chair of FOWS

Friday 19th January Donation Day

Thursday 1st February School Disco

Its time for pupils to get those dancing shoes on.  £3 per child with a drink and snack included.  Fully supervised by teachers and volunteers so children can be drop off at reception for an evening of fun (sorry but we don’t have the space to allow parents to stay)   

  • Foundation/KS1 4.30-5.30
  • KS2 5.45-7pm

We are looking for a few parent helpers that can help with the smooth running of one or both discos so if you would like to be involved, please get in contact either via our Facebook page or email

FOWS are now a Registered Charity

We are thrilled to announce that In November Friends of Orton Wistow School (FOWS) obtained charitable status! This not only marks a major step forward for our organisation's governance but also opens new avenues for financial support. With our newfound charitable status, we can now tap into additional funding sources such as Gift Aid and grants, empowering us to further enhance our impact and support for Orton Wistow School initiatives.  Charity Number 1205757

Easy Fundraising

Our November Easy Fundraising competition was a great success raising £98 commission in 1 month.  Thank you to everyone who supported this initiative and congratulation to Jo Tomlinson who was our winner, raising the most money just through doing her shopping via the portal

Easy Fundraising isn’t just for Christmas, you can register any time (its just like Top Cashback) so whether you are doing your weekly grocery shop, buying insurance or booking a summer holiday, by going through Easy Fundraising you can help us raise money but at no additional cost to you.  Please take a look

Kind regards
