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:
Fun Playground Markings, Games for Penguin Class, Imajica Theatre Whole School Pantomime (December 2019), Early Years Outside Space Improvements, Year one 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, Yr3 Museum visit, Early Years Baking Day, Yr 4 Teepee, Portable Coat Rack, Yr 4 Leavers Hoodies, White Rose Maths, 10 x Bubble Machines.

Our Treasurer and Vice Treasurer have offered to support the new treasurer with the transition.
Please contact one of the named committee via our email address if you would like to know more!
As we can't fundraise in person we would like to ask if you are doing your shopping online, please sign up to easyfundraising.
Over 4,000 sites will give us a free donation every time you shop online. This will help us continue to provide activities and resources for the school for our children to enjoy and benefit from.
You can also make a donation at any time via our DONATE NOW button.
Please note that due to Covid 19 FTDS are reviewing how and what we are able to offer.
