Friends of East Cowton School

Registered charity no. 1062613

Welcome from “The Friends” of our amazing school.

So what are “The ‘Friends’’ all about ……

Many of you may not realise but as parents and guardians, we are all members of “The Friends”.  It is a charity and we have a committee which meets once a term in the Beeswing Inn.  Formed back in the 1980s to help all of our children to enjoy some extra resources, visits and treats that make our small school an amazing place to learn.

 You can be as involved as much you want to be. It doesn’t have to be a big commitment, no matter how much support or time you can give, any help is greatly appreciated.

A ‘WhatsApp’ group has been set up to let us all know about what’s going on eg:- meetings, event dates or  should anything be needed, like an extra table or gazebo.
