Friends of Cherry Hinton C of E Primary School
If you’re a parent or carer of a child at our school then you’re already part of the Friends community
Who are we and what do we do?
We’re parents and carers working together to raise funds for school resources, and to run and be involved in events which build our school community and encourage our children's learning and growth.
You will have seen some of our work last year - we ran the Christmas Fair, joined by Father Christmas, the tasty Easter Event bake sale, and provided you with strawberries and cream, face painting and games at the Summer Picnic. Our faithful volunteers run Book Club each week. And don’t forget those lollies on hot (and not so hot) Fridays in the summer term!
And you’ll have seen where our (which are really your) funds have been spent - gardening beds upgrade, pergola in the playground, woodworking tools for nursery, upgrades to the hall AV system, loads of new library books.
So get involved!
It’s not ‘us’ and ‘you’ but really ‘all of us together’. We’re a tiny team and can’t have an impact without you:
Give your time - you could sell cakes at a bake sale or run a craft table, do some digging and building in a garden space, help out at the Book Club on a Friday afternoon, and much more.
Give funds - come to our events and take the opportunity to support the school financially while enjoying tasty cake, getting into the glitter and glue of a craft table, and generally having fun!
Be our link to your child’s year group - we want two parents in each class connected to the Friends. You’ll tell parents how they can get involved and events that we’re running, and you’ll be their voice into our decision making and event planning. It’s fun and really rewarding!
Come along to an open meeting - we have meetings each term to review what we’re doing and you’re welcome to join us.
Share your ideas - suggest how we can raise funds, how we can be supporting school, and where we spend our funds.
