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 - Position Vacant

Vice Chair - Michelle Caul-Byrne

Treasurer - Julia Covell

Secretary - Victoria Fradley

We made a fantastic start to 2019/20 with a very successful Coffee Morning and Christmas Fair. We also funded for the children in Years 1-6 to visit the pantomime in Ely. However, due to COVID-19, we were unable to go ahead with any of our planned events in the spring and summer terms and our funds are looking a little depleted as a result.  

This year we need your support more than ever so that we can continue 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.
