The Friends of North Waltham School

The Friends of North Waltham is a charity group whose primary aim is to co-ordinate fundraising efforts for the school – to resource equipment and experiences intended to enrich our children’s educational experience at North Waltham Primary. 

Membership of The Friends extends across the entire school community – including you as parents / carers. We currently have a Committee of eight parent volunteers who meet once every half term to plan events and manage the funding budgets, in discussion with the staff and governors. 

The funds you have raised in the past have provided the school with improvements to the grounds, provision of outside and sports equipment, a new bike shed, a storytelling chair, and stock for the library. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ONGOING SUPPORT! 

If you are interested in joining the Friends committee please contact The Friends at the following address: friendsofnorthwalthamschool@gmail.com
