The BE team is a group of parents who give up their time to organise fundraising activities for our school community.  Our aim is to use the funds we raise to provide ‘extras’ for the school. On an annual basis, we pay for a theatre group or pantomime to visit the school and we pay for the Year 6 children to have a final social event before they move to secondary school. The majority of funds raised are used to develop the school outdoor play spaces. In recent years we have purchased the KS1 play village, the adventure trail for the Key Stage 2 pupils and most recently the wooden pagoda which provides much needed shade and shelter on the field.

In the summer term every Friday is 'Ice cream Friday' where we sell ice creams or lollies at the front of the school. This is an easy way to raise funds and is loved by everyone. 

What does being a member of the BE group mean?

All parents automatically become members of the BE group when their child joins the school. It is not a ready made organisation, as its success depends entirely on your support. There are many ways in which you could be involved, depending on how much time and/or energy you can spare.

Fundraising Events

Our main fundraiser of the year is the Summer Fair– which takes place on a Friday afternoon towards the end of June, Fireworks Night in November and a Christmas Fair in December. Other events throughout the year can include Bingo nights, quiz nights, film nights, beetle drives, raffles, home clothes days, jumble sales and cake sales.

If you have ideas for any other events, please speak to Mrs. Heasman or come along to our next meeting…
