How can you help?
We run a preloved uniform shop during term time - keep an eye on the school facebook page or contact Haley Tomlin on 07854 110799.
Donate your time
We always welcome helpers - new and old. It doesn't matter how many grand/children you have, how old you are or what your background is. If you are willing to get involved, you will have something to offer. You might be a wonder at wrapping, super at shopping, brilliant at baking, have tonnes of time or endless enthusiasm. Or simply willing.
Vacancy: Grant applications
We are looking for someone to take over the grant applications at the end of this year. This is particularly important given the amounts we need to raise over the coming few years. If you are good with details, organised and reliable please come and join us! The role is explained in more detail here or please email us firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more. If you don't think you can take it on alone, maybe you could operate as a team with someone else?
Vacancy: Uniform sale
We are also looking for someone to take over the pre-loved uniform sales. This is an important part of what we do - encouraging uniforms to be recycled in the best way possible, raising money for the Friends and giving a helping hand to those who struggle to afford uniforms. The role can be what you make of it and can be a fairly 'stand alone' role: collecting donations, selling uniform at school or taking it 'online'.
The Vice-chair doesnt really have a defined role as such - they are there to support the chair and generally be helpful! If you're interested in taking this on, please contact us to have a further discussion.
Recycle, save money and donate to the school all at the same time!
If you have any preloved uniform, Christmas jumpers or book day costumes to donate, please drop it in to the school. We particularly need KS2 purple stuff.
If you have any pre-loved 'small world' toys or books that might be suitable for the school, please contact Claire on 07778 933795. Examples of toys would be trains, vehicles, dolls houses, play kitchens, dolls...
