Friends of St Nicholas School

The Friends of St Nicholas is a group of Parents who volunteer their time to raise funds to provide the children with equipment and facilities that are not provided for by the funding allocated to the school from the government.We try and meet at least once a term to plan and discuss ways we can raise funds and organise events.Friends, Parents, Carers and Grandparents are all welcome to join at any time by leaving their name and a contact number with school. Or you can just turn up to our meetings which will be posted on the schools calendar.At our meetings we put forward ideas for events and activities and if agreed we plan and organise them.

If you would like to help occasionally we would be very pleased to hear from you. Sometimes we just need a cake baking or help serving refreshments and donating a gift or two for raffles and tombola’s would be gratefully appreciated.

Details of any events will be published on our “Friends of” page on the school website which can be found under the “Parents” heading.

In 2023 we had coffee mornings, number squares, themed hamper raffles, film nights, an Easter trail, a Christmas Fair and a Christmas wreath making evening to help raise funds for school.
This helped to fund the science workshops in school, paid for transport to events and allowed us to fund books to support the Little Wandle reading scheme. Every year we commit to  subsidising the end of year whole school trip and pay for ice creams on the day as well as buying a leavers hoodie for every year 6 pupil and paying for an end of year treat.

For further information please contact Miss Tucker in school or Claire Lancaster, Jessica Petchey or Becky Stainthorp in the playground.
