We have a team of extremely hard working parents that devote lots of time to supporting the education and learning environment for all of the children. We are always looking for volunteers to support in any small way. This does not mean devoting hours or days, just half an hour a year will make a huge difference.
How we make a difference..
The Friends help out at most school events by providing refreshments, ranging from teas and coffees at parent meetings to hot dogs at Carols on the Glebe and cream teas on Sports Day. We hold fun events for the children such as Wave Rave and Film Nights. In addition we organise several fundraising events during the year. These have included: Quiz Nights; Easter Fair; sponsored events; Camp Nights; Blue Bell Run and many more.
How do your children benefit.
The Friends meet regularly during the school year to plan events, they also work closely with the headteacher and school staff to make sure that money raised is used effectively.
Over the last year donations to the school have paid for: coaches for school trips, contribution towards the Year 6 leavers events in school; the purchase of IPads; contribution towards the annual whole school pantomime visit; the purchase of reading books for the new reading scheme and much more.
Our elected members are:
Chairman: Mrs Bonita Boyd
Vice-Chairman: Mrs Trina Mealham
Treasurer: Mrs Catherine Martin
Secretary: Mrs Debbie Grant
