Chesswood Junior School

Friends of Chesswood

Friends of Chesswood is an active group of parents, staff and other members of the Chesswood Community who meet regularly to arrange social events and raise funds for the School.  Everyone is welcome and it is an excellent way of becoming involved in school life and meet other parents.

Our primary role is fundraising.  We raise several thousand pounds each year which is spent on additional equipment or resources to enhance the children’s educational experience and the school’s facilities.

It is also a way of providing closer links between home and school and to bring families and staff together socially. We arrange events such as Christmas and Summer Fayres, Discos, Film Afternoons, Coffee Mornings for parents and Ice Cream sales amongst other things.

Our meetings are usually held in the Staff Room at 3.30pm (see below).  If you are unable to attend our meetings there are other ways you can get involved, such as helping at the Fayres, Discos or other events, or general preparation leading up to the various events.  Please do get in touch if you would like to be involved in some way.

We are always happy to meet new parents and new ideas for fundraising or social events are always welcome.

If you would like any further information please contact Kate Brown in the school office –
