The Friends of Crowmoor Primary are very active in fundraising to support the school which enables the school to provide opportunities for the children which they might not otherwise have. They regularly assist in subsidising school trips and activities, as well as purchasing equipment and resources for the school. If you would like to contact a member of the friends please speak to the office.
Who they are:
Chair: Jane Conde
Vice-chair: Ashley Jones
Treasurer: Sarah Richards

School Coordinator: Hannah Cave
Things the Friends Desperately Need
Help at the Christmas and Summer Fayres, discos etc.
Donations for raffles and tombolas
Friends aims are to:
raise money for the school
involve the children in school life
create fun events for the children and their parents, carers and family
work together (as a team with the school and parents, carers and families)
In the School year 2015-16, the Friends of Crowmoor helped the school with funding the following:
New books for the school library
Trip for the school choir to the Birmingham Symphony Hall
Coach costs for residential visits
Year 6 leavers’ treat and lunch
Oxford Reading Tree and phonics books for the children
Regular events organized to raise money by the Friends:
Ice cream sales on hot days
Refreshments at school events
When your child starts at the school you and your family automatically become members of the Friends. They are always looking for new faces to join in helping with activities as well as introducing new fundraising ideas. All newcomers and ideas are welcome. Without the support of parents, carers and other family members the Friends wouldn’t exist. You do not have to be on the committee to help out, but support organising events or at events themselves is vital. This can be as a one off or at any event. Any help, big or small, is always appreciated.
Meetings are held at the school every month. Please ask at the office for further details or find the Friends on Facebook: Friends of Crowmoor Primary. We are also on Twitter @FriendsofCrow.
