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 2020/2021 FTDS have funded or agreed to fund:

Outdoor play equipment for Years 1-4.
 Reading Scheme books for Reception and KS2. Non fiction books and fiction for Badger class. Whole school online panto - Jack and the Bean Stalk (with a bag of popcorn each). Gift of a book for every child - Story Time with Santa.  Early Years Ducklings. Blah Blah Blah games for KS2 classes.  WOW days - Nursery space day, Reception travel day, Yr1 drumming workshop, Yr2 beach day, Yr3 Labtots workshops, Yr4 Stageright workshops.

Friends of Tannery Drift's Sponsored Summer Fun
On Friday 9th July, the students of Tannery Drift First School will enjoy the fun of the fair, with welly wanging, hook a duck, hoopla and a coconut shy, all while raising much needed funds for Friends of Tannery Drift School!  
FTDS are limited in our fundraising activities this year so your support by sponsoring this event is greatly appreciated.

Friends of Tannery Drift's Summer Disco
The students of Tannery Drift School will have the opportunity to put on their dancing shoes on Wednesday 21st July, at their own Keystage school discos! 
The discos will take place during the school day and each student will be given a savoury snack to enjoy.
In previous years the FTDS discos have been one of the highlights of the term for many children and have helped us raise much needed funds.  
If you would like to donate the price of a ticket you can make a suggested donation of £3 via our JustGiving page.
Wishing you all a groovy summer!

In September 2021 we will need a new joint Secretary, creating agendas and taking minutes for our meetings to join our friendly team!
