The Friends of Chartham Primary

 

Who are we and how can you get involved?

 

We are a group of volunteers - parents/carers, staff and governors - who give their time to create better learning experiences for our children.

 

As well as raising much needed funds that improve our school, the social events we run bring the whole community together, and links with teachers help to give all parents/carers a say in their child's education.

Why not get involved?

 

Don't be put off if you feel you can't give your time, haven't been asked or are unsure what is involved.

 

  • We have parents/carers who may work part-time or full-time. Any time you can give is welcome.
  • Having a child at this school means you can join us. We can use any skills you have and you might learn new ones.
  • Being involved is a great way to get to know the school and other parents and carers.
