Welcome to the Whitfield Aspen Staff Parents and Friends Association (WASPFA).
WASPFA is a charity created for the purpose of raising money to support Whitfield Aspen School, whilst aiming to provide fun experiences and events for pupils and their families.
Please bear in mind, all WASPFA events are run by volunteers with their own children and jobs, whose time is given for free. As their time is limited they may not always be available to speak to, therefore it would be helpful if parents and pupils could follow any instructions regarding events provided by letter, on our Facebook page or sent via the Home Connect text message or email service.
WASPFA events are not organised or run by the school, therefore any enquires should be directed to WASPFA (contact details below) and not school staff.
All feedback is welcome, but please keep it polite.
WASPFA will not tolerate any abuse directed at its volunteers.
If you are interested in volunteering at WASPFA events please contact us or come and find us. We’d love to hear from you!

You can also contact us in writing, marking correspondence clearly for the attention of WASPFA and handing it into the school office.
