Who We Are?                                                   
The Friends of St Norbert’s is a registered charity, run by a group of volunteering parents, working closely with teachers and pupils. We organise fundraising events throughout the school year to raise as much money as we can for those extra things that tight budgets may not stretch too. We meet once a term to share ideas and plan fun activities for all to enjoy. The Friends group is also a great way for parents to get involved with the school, and meet other parents whilst making a valuable contribution to the whole school.

The Money We Raise…
All the money that you help us raise goes back in to the school for the benefit of the children. In the last few years we have purchased a new stage for the assembly hall, digital cameras for all classrooms, the mosaic in the main entrance as designed by children. Coaches for school trips continue to be funded, books and the Travelling Pantomime that visits in December are always on the shopping list too.

We have also transformed the outdoor playground area with the addition of a gazebo, new seating areas, signage, outdoor bean bags, colourful bins, outdoor equipment and playground games. This transformation is set to continue, with funds helping to purchase a wonderful outdoor adventure boat for the EYFS/KS1 area, and supporting a project to create an outdoor classroom learning area for all to enjoy.

How You Can Help….
There are many ways that parents can help support. Your help is much needed and can be as little or as much as you can give.

  • You could join the group of Friends, meet once a term, to help plan the fundraising events.
  • Volunteer to help at events & activities as & when you can. We really appreciate any time that you can give.
  • You could simply offer ideas & suggestions to making fundraising fun for all.
  • But most importantly we ask that you and your child/children support our events and activities to make them a fundraising success.

We would like to thank you for your ongoing help in supporting our events in any way. If you are interested in contributing or have any questions, please speak to one of the committee members, or leave your name at the school office and we will contact you directly.
