Welcome to The Friends of Calverley CE School!

Friends of Calverley

 

The Friends of Calverley CE Primary School (formerly the PTA) plays an active role in supporting the school through its fundraising events and initiatives. Over the past 30 years the Friends have helped to raise thousands of pounds to purchase equipment and teaching resources, such as computers in classrooms, sports equipment including the fantastic adventure playground and interactive whiteboards.

 

What is our aim?

 

Our aim is to advance the education of pupils in the school by:

 

- Developing effective relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school

- Engaging in activities or providing facilities or equipment which support the school and advance the education of the pupils

 

How do we do this?

 

We organise events throughout the year which are supported by parents and carers, children, the staff and the local community. Some of our recent events include the Christmas Shopping Evening, book sales, discos, fashion shows and the Spring Fayre. We also support school events such as sports day and the new parents meeting.

Who are our members?

 

All parents and carers are automatically members of the ‘Friends Association’ along with current school. The Friends also has a Committee which helps to provide a structure to the Friends group and makes decisions about how which fundraisers will take place and how the money might be spent.
