Welcome to the Friends of Tannery Drift School!            Registered Charity: 291369

Friends of Tannery Drift School (FTDS) are every parent, carer and member of staff who helps to fund raise for our school – whether you are part of our committee/membership and organise events, make donations, or help out at an event.

FTDS raise money throughout the academic year to fund projects, equipment or facilities which would not otherwise be funded, to enhance school life for the children of Tannery Drift First School. 

There will be new challenges this year for FTDS, however we will continue to explore enjoyable ways to bring together and support our wider school community, through fundraising and cost neutral events/activities, while being mindful of the financial pressures families are experiencing and adhering to the changing guidance associated with COVID 19.  

In 2019/20 FTDS have already funded/agreed to fund:

Fun Playground Markings, Games for Penguin Class, Imajica Theatre Whole School Pantomime (December 2019), Early Years Outside Space Improvements, Yr1 Reading Corner Resources, £1900 towards a new Guided Reading Scheme for Early Years and KS1, New display cabinet for the school hall, Tannery Tots/Early Years After School Club resources for the younger children, School Defibrillator, Harpist during Art Week, Early Years Baking Day, Yr4 Teepee, Portable Coat Rack, Yr4 Leavers Hoodies, White Rose Maths, 10 x Bubble Machines, Yr4 Leavers Icecreams!

Design a Carved Pumpkin Competition
Can you design a winning carved pumpkin? 

Pumpkins can be carved, drawn, or models. (Please ask a grown-up for help with the carving, but make the design your own). 

The winners for the best design for Early Years, KS1 and KS2 will each receive a small prize.

The overall winner will receive a hand crocheted 3D version of their entry! Amazing!! 

Please email a photo of your entry to
friendsoftannerydriftschool@gmail.com including your name and class by midnight on Sunday 1st November. Entries will be judged by the school with the winners announced shortly after. 

Entry to the competition is free but a suggested donation of £1 to FTDS through Easyfundraising would be most welcome: www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/fotannerydrift/ 

Good luck!
