Who are we?

The Friends are a group of parents who plan a regular series of events for the children, that also raise funds for the school to spend on items and activities that enhance our children's experience of school. We are a registered charity.

 

Where the money goes

This school year we contributed half the cost of the new outdoor play equipment. We provided a gift and paid for the children's Christmas parties. We paid for the refurbishment of the new library, including a new laptop for the library volunteers. We paid for the safe parking signs. We are subsidising the cost of the main school trip for each year group, as usual. In addition, we were happy to pay for transport so the Year 2 Orchestra could play at Stadium MK. We are now raising money for ICT equipment, musical instrument storage and an outdoor reading area.

 

Recent Events

 

Easter Disco - 26 March

It was wonderful to see so many amazing dancers at our two disco session. Everyone looked like they were enjoying the games too. The craft area was hugely popular this year. We raised a record £639.50. Thank you to all the volunteers for making this such a fun event.

 

May Fayre - 16 May

We hope you all enjoyed the May Fayre. It was great to see so many of you there. We were lucky with the weather again. A huge thank you to everyone who donated an item, attended a planning meeting, helped set up, manned a stall or stayed behind to clear up. Thank you to everyone who came along and spent their hard earned cash. We hope you came away with a few prizes and many happy memories. We particularly enjoyed watching Mooie from MK Dons dancing with the children. Look out for photos from the day appearing on the school website soon.

 

Finally *drum roll* we raised a massive, record-breaking £5,263. On top of this we will also be claiming over £2,300 in matched funding from NHBC and Santander. We are delighted to have raised so much money from one event. We know that the money raised will benefit all the children who attend our wonderful school now and in the future.

The Committee

Some of our committee are 'retiring' at the end of the year, as their children head off to middle school. They will help plan the Year 2 leaver celebrations and then they will handover to the next generation of Friends. So, we are looking for new members. The more the merrier. If you would like to find out more about the work that we do - and make some new friends - please get in touch.
