This year is looking very different for the Friends.
We would usually be busy organising numerous events to take place throughout the year. As these all involve the Friends Committee interacting with the children, we are unable to run these currently due to Covid restrictions.
We need to think outside the box and welcome any new ideas from parents and children.
During December, we normally hold our Christmas Secret Gift event as well as the Winter Disco. We still managed to arrange the secrets gifts, although it was adapted to suit Covid restrictions.
The winter disco went ahead too, but this year it was virtual. It was still lovely for the children to be able to interact with their friends.
Looking forward to the New Year 2021
We are pleased to announce the launch of our "Become a Fundraising Friend" campaign. The fundraising team have come up with a campaign that we think children and their families will be able to do and enjoy while staying safe at home.
Please see the attached information which relates to the 'Fundraising Friend Campaign' which is being launched. If you are interested in taking part then please contact the 'Friends' directly (email is on the attachment).
More information regarding fundraising ideas will be given out to children next week via Google classroom.
We look forward to hearing your ideas for raising funds for our school.

Amazon Year Group Wishlists
Unfortunately due to the current situation with the pandemic, we have been unable to raise as much money to contribute to school resources. As we cannot accept Christmas gifts in school this year , wishlists have been created for the purchase of gifts for those who wanted to purchase items for their child’s class. If you would like to purchase anything to help keep class resources topped up, the links have been included below.

The Clothes Charity Bin
The School has an ongoing clothes bin for donations of textiles that you no longer want.
These get collected by The Salvation Army and the school receives 45p per kilo, which goes towards the school funds.
You can drop any bagged items down by the front door and these will get moved to the recycling station. We accept clothes, bags, shoes, belts, bedding and towels.
