Friends of School

Who are the Committee?

Chair:  Gussie Kerr-Bonner

Secretary:  Lucy Young
Treasurer: Angela Newton

How are they elected?

The committee are elected democratically as per the PTA regulations. We are a friendly and fun bunch who meet at school to discuss a variety of topics, but largely we work on the next event and scratch our heads as to what clever plan we can cook up to put more money in the till!

What are the aims of the Friends?

Our main mission is to ‘Involve the Community’ in order that we can rally support from contributors other than just parents and guardians of the school.
To have fun and do a little good!
Support the extra budgetary requirements of the school.

How is the money spent?

Over the years we have raised money for projects such as:

  • Interactive TV in Thatchers
  • The new playground surface
  • Our EYFS playground .
  • Felting Sound Boards
This year we hope to put our fundraising towards:
  • A new Key Stage 2 Building
Some events we have planned for the year ahead – Christmas workshop – wreaths; Quiz Night, children designing Christmas cards; Beetle drive; disco;
