A very warm welcome to Friends of Upper Wharfedale School

Our aim is to help the school to provide additional equipment and resources, which the school budget will not often stretch to, in order to enhance the education of our children. 

The activities and events which we organise help to improve links between parents/carers, children and the school staff to encourage a team spirit to work towards a common goal. 

As Upper Wharfedale is a small school, we feel we need an “all hands on deck” approach to help our children receive the best education possible. The Committee is well supported by staff and parents alike and we have input from the Student Leadership Team who often attend meetings to share ideas from a student perspective. 

I am proud to say that “Friends” are very well supported by the local community. Shops and businesses are very generous in their donations of raffle prizes and are always willing to help with the promotion of our fundraising events.

Our Committee is made up of:

Chair: Judith Lancaster
Vice Chair: Andrew Taylor
Secretary: Jo Selby
Treasurer: Nigel Wain
Members: Clare Oakes, Lisa Roddis, Caroline Johnston

We meet on the second Monday of the month in the school library from 6 pm – please do feel free to pop along to hear in more detail about what we do. We would love to hear your suggestions. If you can’t make the meetings but would like to help in other ways by baking, helping out at events, please get in touch below
