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
Hello! Like much of life right now, our plans for this school year are pretty uncertain. Most of the activities we normally run are not social distancing friendly, so we're looking for bright ideas and innovation - if you have any of either then we'd love to hear from you.
What's on so far this year -
Book Club - is now back in action, run by the amazing Donna and team. This continues despite restrictions and is a significant contributor to our fundraising efforts.
Activities this term - we're brainstorming what events we can run under Tier 4 restrictions, if you have ideas then we would love to hear them!
Despite restrictions, you can help us raise funds while you shop online via easyfundraising.org uk, which gives us cashback on some online purchases. Over 4000 shops donate to us when you shop with them, without any additional cost for you. Please take a minute to sign up and support school - visit www.easyfundraising.org.uk, and then search for 'The Friends of Cherry Hinton Primary School'
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 up our school community and encourage our children's learning and growth. In recent years we've run the hugely popular Christmas Fair, the weekly Book Club, Tuck Shop in the playground after school, Easter Events, bake sales and more.
The funds we've raised are invested straight back into school life. In the last few years we've upgraded the hall AV system, donated over £1,000 to buy library books, installed new playground markings for learning and play, built new garden beds and a pergola, and provided funds for class Christmas present treats.
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 - we urgently need help with Book Club on Friday afternoons. And then once life is a bit more back to normal then you could sell cakes at a bake sale or run a craft table, do some digging and building in a garden space, and more.
Give funds - buy Christmas raffle tickets, do your online shopping via our easyfundraising website, donate directly to our library fund.
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.
Your 20-21 core team
We're a very small team this year! If you're interested in joining us, in any capacity, then we'd love to hear from you. Our ambition is to have two class reps per year group to allow us to properly engage with our parent communities.
