Friends of Shardlow

Welcome to Friends of Shardlow School


Friends of Shardlow School is the school's Parent Teacher Association, a very active and dedicated group of parents and staff who meet to discuss and arrange a variety of events to raise funds for school. Events include discos, summer and Christmas fairs, and chocolate bingo.

In recent years, we are really pleased to have raised enough funds to provide school with new ipads, funding towards transport for the annual Christmas pantomime trip,  furniture and equipment for the new reception unit, gardening equipment, and water for all pupils to enjoy.


Forthcoming Events


Chocolate Bingo

Thursday 22 March, 6.30-7.30pm, school

Bingo with chocolate prizes!


All pupils (and any siblings who attend with a purchased ticket) also take home an Easter Egg at the end of the night.

Any leftover Eggs are donated to the children's ward at Derby Royal Hospital.


Siblings are welcomed but please note that children MUST be accompanied by an adult to this event.

Tickets (£2 each) are limited for this event so please order soon.


We will be having a non-uniform day on Friday 16th March

in return for Easter Eggs which will be used as prizes for this event. 

A letter will be coming home with pupils about this soon.
