Friends of Knavesmire

 

All parents of pupils at Knavesmire are members of the school’s Parent Teacher Association, the Friends of Knavesmire Primary School. This very important group of people meet regularly to organise a wide variety of activities. The social events give great enjoyment to the children (and parents too!) and raise money for the school.

The Friends of Knavesmire Primary School:

  • supports the work of the school by fostering the relationship between parents, staff and others associated with the school;
  • makes contact with new parents at the meetings held prior to children’s admission to the Nursery and to the Reception Class;
  • organises a programme of social and fund-raising events that encourage involvement in the life of the school;
  • supports the education of the pupils.

Regular events include a Christmas Shopping Evening, Easter Fair, Pumpkin Festival, Quiz, and Christmas Discos for all the children. Through their very valuable efforts they have been able to provide useful items of equipment, for example, many of the school’s interactive whiteboard systems and outdoor play area. The “Friends” also pay for transport on many of the visits that the children undertake and for visitors to the school, such as travelling Theatre groups.

Meetings of the “Friends” are informal, and are a good way of making friends with common interests in the school. If you would like to join us, you will be made most welcome. 

 
 The current Officers of the “Friends” are:
  • Chair             Judith Dodd (Y2 and Y4 parent)
  • Vice-Chair     Rebecca Dodgson (Y2 parent)
  • Treasurer      Rachel Waddington-Clarke (Y2 and Y6 parent)
  • Secretary      Kate Hicks (Y6 parent) and Elaine White (Y6 parent)
