Friends of Broad Hinton School

We are fortunate at our school to have ‘The Friends’ that is and has been an integral part of the school community for many years. In its time ‘The Friends’ has raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education experience and the school’s facilities.

‘The Friends’ is about much more than simply fundraising. It exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too – just ask any of the committee members or helpers. Obviously, as in any organisation, we have experienced some challenges but with the continued support of parents, ‘The Friends’ has always succeeded in its efforts.

All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available. All families are automatically members of ‘The Friends’ when their child joins our school. Members are not legally responsible for the action of ‘The Friends’.

‘The Friends’ is extremely conscious of the ethos and diversity of our school, and we try very hard when organising and planning events to respect this. Not all of our events are run as fundraisers but for the children to have fun!

 Our committee members include:  Mrs J Alexander (Chair), Miss Z Hunt (Vice-Chair/Secretary), Mrs E Briers (Treasurer), Mrs K Whittle, Mrs W Guyatt, Dr A Clewley, Mrs V Ladd, Mrs S Smith, Mrs A Tipping and Mrs Hannah Collier.

You can speak to any one of us to get involved in organising events and raising funds for the children within the school's care.
