Friends Information


The Friends of Loughton Manor First School (FLMFS) was established in November 1997, shortly after the school first opened. It is a registered charity which is run purely on a voluntary basis by parents and carers of children attending the school. We hold a variety of fundraising events throughout the school year in addition to various smaller projects.


Our aims


  • To raise money to be used to enhance the educational experience of the children at the school.
  • To provide an important link between parents, staff, governors, pupils and other people interested in the school.
  • To provide events and activities for the school but also the wider community to enjoy.
  • To provide an opportunity for parents to meet others within the school.



Where the money goes


Over the years, FLMFS has raised substantial amounts of money which have enabled the school to purchase items that enhance the educational experience of the children at the school. In the past these have included:


  • Within the grounds of the school - the Willow classroom, trim trail, climbing wall, sand pit, wooden playhouse at the front of the school and the storage shed for garden equipment.
  • IT equipment and software.
  • Construction toys and musical instruments.



Last financial year


In 2014/15 we raised £10,050.58, and spent £12,617.47 from accumulated funds over the last couple of years. We have helped with the library refurbishment, playground equipment for Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, Clevertouch interactive screens for year 2, subsidising school trips, Christmas parties, safe parking signs among other sundry items.
