Every parent is automatically a member of the Friends Association. The Friends run fund-raising events for the school as well as extra curricular activities for the children. In previous years the Friends have raised money to buy iPads for the school as well as books and computers.
We also run events for the children such as our annual Easter Egg hunt and Santa's Grotto where every child gets to visit Father Christmas.
We meet monthly to share ideas and discuss different fund-raising events. Our meetings are friendly, informal and a lovely way to meet other parents and make new friends over a cuppa. Meetings are held in the school Community Room on Fridays, either in the afternoons from 2.00pm to 3.00pm or in the mornings from 9.00am to 10.00am.
Please check the weekly newsletters for details of the next meeting. You can also keep up to date with events via the Friends Facebook page. Click the image below to see their latest news.
We have regular collections of unwanted clothes which is a really good way to raise extra funds.
Using 'Phil the Bag' collection services we regularly raise £200 just from parents bringing in bags of old clothes, shoes, bags and linens. Our next collection will be after the Easter holidays so if you are having a Spring clean this Easter please bring the bags to school.
In 2016-17 we are fundraising for an urban Forest School environment
The friends are looking to support the development of an Urban Forest School environment along the back entrance to the school. The walk way past the pond is going to be transformed into an amazing out door learning area for the children to use.To achieve the vision of the school we will be donating all the revenues raised from the events and cake sales that the friends will be hosting this year.
If you have any skills or time you are able to offer to help make this Urban Forest School environment come to life please get in touch.
