Here at Thropton Village First School we have a very active and enthusiastic ‘Friends’ group, whose purpose is to organise fundraising and social activities for children and their parents.

All parents of children at the school are automatically ‘Friends’ and we encourage as many people as possible to come along to our monthly meetings and share their ideas, skills and enthusiasm.  Meetings are usually held on the first Wednesday of every month, in the school hall, at 9am.

If you are a new parent to the school, or your child has been here a little while but you have never been to a Friends meeting before, please consider coming along. Grandparents and other carers are very welcome too!  Meetings are very relaxed and informal, and are a great way to get to know other parents.

Friends of Thropton Village First School is headed by a committee comprising of both parent volunteers and members of staff, who are elected annually at our AGM.  Our committee members for this academic year are:

  • Chair: Joanne Gaff
  • Vice Chair: Flora Cann
  • Treasurer: Katherine Singer
  • Secretary: Various Persons
  • School liaison: Miss Cann

If you would like to find out more please contact school or have a chat with a committee member.
