What The Friends Do

We are passionate about our school and helping the children be the best they can be. Over the years we have raised money to help the school in numerous ways. Last year, we were asked if we could fund raise towards the new Year 6 Eco Classroom which we did. It is now finished and is a huge asset to the school. Thanks to the effort from children, parents and staff we made it happen and we are very proud of the results.


We are always looking for new fundraising ideas and opportunities, but we usually raise money through fun events and initiatives:

  • Summer Fete

  • Christmas Fayre

  • Christmas cards

  • Tea and cake afternoons

  • Bags to School

Last year we also held Film Nights for the children, an Easter egg competition as well as school discos. If you have any ideas, please do let us know.


Spending money to enrich the children’s education

Following on from replacing the play house in Early years, we are looking towards funding a new playhouse for year 1. We have also recently installed new exercise equipment for the children to use and enjoy before school and at lunch times.


Our next project will be groundwork around the school- replacing the garden shed and tidying up the communal areas outside. We are also looking to secure and raise funding to turn the old year 4 classroom into a more useable space for the children.
