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!

The whole school worked with an artist to create our mosaic. This activity was funded by the Friends.
