The FRIENDS are a group of parents whose children currently or have recently attended the school. They are a vital support to the school, raising money through various after school activities, including termly hot dog and popcorn evenings, discos and bake sales.

In the last few years the FRIENDS have provided boxes of games to every class for use during wet playtime; financed a trip to Dereham Cinema as part of transition activities for the new year 3 children; supported the purchase of books for the school library and annually pay for fish and chips for the year 6 end of year trip to the beach and provide Christmas Crackers for all children for the Christmas celebration lunch each year.

We are incredibly grateful to the support the FRIENDS provide to the school.

All parents are invited to attend meetings and become actively involved. The FRIENDS are a vital part of our school life without which, the children would not receive as many varied opportunities as they do.
