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,  

furniture and equipment for the reception unit, gardening equipment, books and dictionaries for the school library,

outdoor equipment and games, and water for all pupils to enjoy.



Volunteers - We need you!

We need volunteers to join the Friends team – especially parents of Key Stage 1 pupils – to make sure we can continue to offer your children the chance to boogie at discos, win Easter eggs at Chocolate Bingo, meet Santa at our Christmas Cracker, and even hook-a-duck at our Summer Fair…. for many years to come!

We only need a few hours of your time – and enthusiasm! 

Please come along to our next meeting or approach the school office for more information.
