About the Friends

During the 2015/2016 academic year the Friends organised and ran several events, raising a staggering £5836.17 for the school. This money will be used over the coming year to support and enhance learning within the classrooms, playground and wider school community.


Over recent years, the funds raised by the Friends’ events has been used for many things, including:


* The school Christmas tree

* iPads for each class

* Cameras for each class

* The well used and much loved, Forest Schools area (behind nursery), plus puddle suits and equipment

* Easter eggs

* Christmas books

* Interactive Whiteboards

* Nativity costumes

* Contribution to end of Year 2 trip




This year we have lots of more exciting events planned. A major art project is already underway involving a local artist who is producing some permanent artwork with your

children. This display has been funded by the Friends of Banks Road and we can’t wait to see it!!!


We are always looking for new committee members, to come along to meetings, to get involved in organising and running events, baking for the occasional cake stall, or just people who want to know a bit more about what we do. We meet as a committee once a term, everyone is welcome and these are publicised on the ‘Friends of Banks Road’ Facebook group.
