Friends

Chair - Emma Tattersall

Secretary - Nikki Wakefield

We enjoy the support of an active, hardworking parents, teachers and friends association in our school. They organise numerous events during the school year including children's discos, Christmas and Easter get-togethers and our very popular Summer Fayre.

The emphasis is not always about raising money, they provide opportunities for everyone to get together and enjoy themselves.  In addition they help by providing refreshments at school events.

The money they raise is used for the benefit of all the children at Littledean School and Little Acorns Nursery.  In recent years they have purchased presents for year 6 leavers, subsidised transport for school trips reducing the contributions we ask from individual parents,  subsidised productions by theatre groups, outside play equipment and have assisted the school in upgrading our computer equipment and class equipment like visulisers to support interactive learning. The Friends have covered the costs of end of year and Christmas discos.

We are having to adapt how we communicate and fund raise due to the changes we are experiencing because of COVID-19, so please if you have any suggestions for fund raising ideas in these strange times, please feel free to speak to a member of the commitee. Now, it feels more important than ever to be able to support our school and keep the community spirit going while raising much needed funds.

New members to the Friends are always welcome so please consider it!
