The joint Eppleby Forcett and Middleton Tyas School Parent Teacher Association was rebranded and named 'Friends' in 2018. This was to reflect the nature of a close working partnership and fundraising to support our schools across two sites.
The group is made up of enthusiastic parents and teachers. Our aim is to work together to raise funds to purchase resources for the schools, such as new equipment, and to help fund wonderful events for your children to enjoy.
The majority of our funds are raised by holding a series of events. We host a range of events each term. We try to hold all events with minimal expenditure therefore maximising our fundraising opportunities.
WE WANT YOU!
The Friends are constantly looking for new members. It really is worthwhile getting involved as your child makes their journey through school. What we have found is that all parents have something to offer and by working together we can make a difference obtaining those little extras that help all our children.
Whether you would like to be fully involved or if you would simply like to help at occasional events your support will be greatly appreciated; we simply need your contact details. If you would like to get in touch with us or offer some help with any of our events please contact us via email. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information.
Updates on our activities and our meeting dates are announced every week through the school newsletter.
