Friends of Denver School

Friends of Denver School

The Friends of Denver School is a parent-led group that raises funds for the School. Because you have a child attending Denver Primary School, you automatically become a member of the Friends!

The Commitee

We are a small group of parents and staff made up of:

Chair - Amanda Dawson

Vice Chair - Sarah Pettit

Treasurer - Julia Covell

Shadow Treasurer - Naomi Peach

Secretary - Position Vacant


Despite Covid-19, we had a very successful year in 2020-21, raising an amazing £3484.12!

This year, we are hoping to be able to hold more of our normal fundraising events, as well as a few new ones, and we need your support to do this. Your support will help us to organise fundraising activities and enrichment opportunities for our children so that they can enjoy extra learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom. That support can come in many different forms:

• Attending meetings and sharing ideas

• Helping out at events - making teas, wrapping presents, setting up tables and chairs,  
 contacting someone, writing a letter, fetching and carrying, coming to play bingo, baking
 cakes, washing up, running a raffle, or even just helping to clear up. 
In the past, funds have gone towards the following in school;
  • Pantomimes and puppet shows
  • Playground equipment
  • Interactive whiteboard
  • Music stands
  • Travel costs for school trips
  • Theatre groups visiting the school
  • Theatre trips
  • History and language days
  • Father Christmas' helper and his gifts
  • Mini beast days
  • Reading schemes
  • Classroom resources
  • Ties and Prefect badges for Year 6
  • Book bags and PE bags for reception children
  • Facilitating the change over to book bags for all children

Look out for emails detailing upcoming Friends' meetings. 

It's a great way to meet other parents and to get more involved with your child's school.
We really hope you will be able to join us and look forward to welcoming you at our meetings.
