Friends of Cheriton

Hello, and a warm welcome to the Friends of Cheriton Primary School’s webpage!


If you don't already know me, my name is Abi Spain and I have three children; two now at Perins and Paddy in year four.   I have been part of the School community for over ten years and have witnessed the School grow from strength to strength.  


The Friends' role is crucially important: we supplement and enhance the learning environment by purchasing equipment and materials, and encourage social interaction across all years.   To enable us to do this we fundraise; but fundraising is just one element.    Involvement promotes a greater understanding of our School, and a forum to meet other parents.


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.   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.


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, shed loads of money always gratefully received!

With my best wishes,


Abi Spain

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!
