Parent/Carer events will be advertised here throughout the school year.
The Friends of Beckford is the title of the Parent Council for Beckford Primary School. We meet on a Tuesday night once each month, in the school. Meetings are informal and fun and involve planning future fundraising activities, hearing school reports and discussing any ideas that have been put forward from the Pupil Council.
All money raised by the Friends of Beckford is given to the school, and examples of where money has been used include purchasing football strips for the school football team and part payment towards the Christmas pantomime. Events we run annually include Halloween parties and a fun night in June, we have also had a successful "Beckford Bake Off" and race nights.
The Friends of Beckford also look at any external funding which can be applied for to help with bigger projects; only recently we were granted £900 to be used for the outside area of the school when the extension is complete.
All parents are welcome to attend our meetings and even if meetings cannot be attended regularly, we always need volunteers for the various events we organise.
Please come along and join in, all the kids benefit from the work of the Parent Council.
