Friends of Freeman

Who are we?
The Friends of Freeman School is run by parents and staff of Freeman Community Primary School. We aim to raise funds for the school whilst having fun!

What we do, why do we do it and who benefits?
We meet regularly to discuss ways we can raise new funds for our schools. We are always open to new ideas. In the past, we’ve raised around £2000 - £3000 per year by running events such as our Christmas & Summer Fairs, Discos, Chocolate Bingo and used it to fund items like the following for the schools:

  • Play equipment for the playground
  • Helped Santa to buy iPads for the classrooms
  • Contribution toward transport for a class trips
  • Class presents at special times of the year
  • Helped to buy a wet-play canopy for EYU
  • Contribution towards gazebos

What are we hoping to achieve next?
Each year, the school give us a wish list that we consider as a group. This year they’ve asked for:

  • Contribution toward a new MUGA pitch
  • Library books and facilities
  • Staging and lights

What kind of help do we need?
We would love you to get involved! We want to work together to try and enrich the school environment for our children and for the future.  We hope that our new volunteers can bring diversity and different perspectives to our group. Some of the benefits to you and our schools are:

  • Making a positive difference to other people
  • Sharing and learning new skills
  • Boosting a CV
  • Meeting new people and having fun
  • Providing positive adult role models
  • Involvement in the school and community
  • Learning new skills
  • Assisting our children to achieve
  • Feeling welcomed and valued at school
  • Sharing knowledge and talents
  • Enriching the school environment
  • Parent understanding and cooperation
  • Appreciation for the talents and contributions of teachers, parents and community volunteers

If you have any questions or comments, please contact us via either the School office or in the playground.

Thank You!
