Hello, and a warm welcome to the Friends of Cheriton Primary School’s webpage.
Firstly I would like to formally introduce myself, my name is Emma Cornick, I have two children at Cheriton School and another one will be joining soon. I work in childcare and I am looking forward to helping this school to enhance all of our children's futures.
Every parent is automatically a Friend of the School: you can take part actively by attending regular meetings, donating cakes (which is always good) or you can give a helping hand by supporting events.
Our main purpose is to raise money for the benefit of the school; but fundraising is just one element. Involvement promotes a greater understanding of our school, and a forum to meet other parents.
We meet 4-5 times a year and although I can’t always promise cake and biscuits, I can assure you of a warm welcome (and a cup of tea!). I am always in the playground at drop off and pick up so please come and have a chat whenever you please.
We are a small school and your involvement, however little, helps. If you would like to come to a meeting – just turn up; if you want to see what we have been discussing – minutes will be sent out via Parentmail; and if you just want to know a little more (without committing yourself to anything) give me a call or email me.
New ideas, offers of help, money always gratefully received.
I am very open to new ideas, even from the children, please come and see me if you have any suggestions, they would be much appreciated.

Easyfundraising is a simple way in which the School can raise some money. By following the link below to the Easyfunding site, you can then go to a huge range of retailers (over 2000) including, amazon, M&S, Argos, John Lewis etc. A percentage of what you spend will then come to the school. It really is that easy!
