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. Year Group discos (with a bag of crisps), Leavers' party donation.
