Friends of Birch Hill

All parents and staff are automatically members of the Friends association and are warmly invited to attend the meetings, which are held every month in the staff room. Just turn up!

What do Friends do?Back to top

Our aim is to raise money for the School, mainly through organising fun events for the children, parents and wider community. Past events include a Fireworks display, Circus, Disco, Quiz night, Christmas Bazaar and a Summer Fete. We have also had a community dig to help clear the wild area of the playground to be used for outdoor classes.

Where does the money go Back to top

In 2017 we completed a big fundraising project of around £19k to replace the old climbing frame with a fabulous new one which is being enjoyed by all year groups in the main school.

We are currently contributing towards the cost of up-grading the IT equipment at the school including laptops, desktops PC and Interactive Whiteboards.

How does it work?Back to top

There are a group of members elected at the AGM to run the association including chairing and documenting meetings, communicating with parents, organising events and managing the finances.

The current committee are:

Charley Neale (Yr 2 and Yr 5 parent)
Emma Austin (Yr R and Yr 3 parent)
Lucy Cass (Yr 3 parent)
Sarah Pitcher (Yr R and Yr 3 parent)

Getting Involved Back to top

We are always looking for new ideas and help fundraising. Everyone is welcome to the meetings or get in touch if you are not able to make them but have some suggestions or feedback. Volunteers are very much needed to help at various events.
