Friends of School
Welcome to the ‘Friends of Driffield Infant School’ section.
Registered Charity number: 1028650
Who are the Friends of Driffield Infant School?
We are fortunate at our school to have a Friends of the School Committee that’s an integral part of the school community. Over the last seven years we have raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s educational experience and the school’s facilities.
The Friends of Driffield Infant School is about much more than simply fundraising. It exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It’s fun too - just ask any of the Committee members or volunteers.
All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available. All families are automatically members of the Friends of Driffield Infant School when their child joins our school.
Role of the Committee
Our Committee consists of Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and Ordinary Committee Members.
Your committee officers are:
Vacant - Chair
Leanne Oxtoby - Vice Chair
Victoria Granton – Treasurer
Vacant – Secretary
The Committee meet on a regular basis (once every half term for approximately an hour) with smaller working groups meeting as necessary when we are planning larger events. The Committee encourages any parent or carer to come along, find out what is being planned, share ideas and get involved.
