This school association was set up to support the school through fundraising activities while another aim is to organise social events that will be valued by the local community. It has gained charitable status which is an advantage in fundraising particularly when writing bids to the various trusts and other funding groups.
It has an open membership with anyone welcome to attend the regular meetings that are usually held in the school. There is an AGM each June.
The Friends have, over the years, organised a wide range of events and it is hoped that all new parents will take an interest in it.
The Friends have funded whole school trips to the Christmas Pantomime at Consett Empire Theatre with transport and icecreams for all of the children.
Other projects helped by the Friends fundraising events include the Fitness Trail, Canopy Shelter and Outdoor Classroom.
If you require further information or would like to become a “Friend of the School” please contact the school office.
