WISPA - Westfields Infant School Parents Association

Registered Charity No: 11119878

Welcome to WISPA – Westfields Infant School Parents Association.

Thank you for visiting the WISPA page. WISPA is the Parents Association for Westfields Infant School and we take an active role in trying to raise additional funds for the school. These funds are used for things that the school budget can't stretch to but that enrich the learning environment for your children. In the past we have paid for new playground equipment, the climbing frame in the Year R playground, new books for the library and books and book storage for classrooms, the MyHappyMind program and renovating the Nurture Room. We also pay for the 'Text to Parents' service and for the Westie Bears that each child receives in Year R. This year we are raising money to make improvements to the toilets across all year groups.

We welcome any parents, carers, grandparents, family members that would like to be involved. We have a core committee with three main elected positions that are a legal requirement for us as a charity - Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.
We also have a wider general committee that help run individual events, organise banking and marketing, run cake sales or simply offer ideas, advice and input as needed. We welcome any involvement, big or small.

There are also nominated class representatives, usually 2 for each class. The main role of the class rep is to act as liaison between parents/carers and the committee and to enlist the help of non-elected committee members at events such as the Christmas Fayre, May Fayre etc. We also ask each class to run a cake sale each year and the class reps act as a point of contact when organising these.  

The AGM is held either at the end of the summer term or the beginning of the autumn term and then subsequent evening meetings are held 2-3 times termly at the school, to plan & discuss fundraising events.

We do appreciate that some parents are unable to attend these meetings however your contribution of help, encouragement& new ideas are very much welcomed throughout the school year. We also have opportunities to volunteer help with things like wrapping gifts for our Christmas, Mother's and Father's Day gift sales that can be done at home in your own time. You may also work for a company that offers match funding - we would love to hear from you if you do!
