Friends Of Newton

Who are Friends of Newton?

Friends of Newton was formed in November 2020. After the collapse of the PTFA in 2018, there was a growing need for a parent volunteer group which could support the school raise much needed funds to improve the quality of education the children receive. 


The Friends of Newton group consists of 12 members. The group meet on a regular basis to help plan fund raising events. So far, the group have planned the following: 


  • Christmas Disco
  • Supported with Christmas crafts for the Newton Christmas Fair
  • Sold calendars and key rings
  • Hosted a pancake breakfast for parents and children
  • Run a number of tuck shop sales
  • Set up a school lottery
  • Set up a shopping reward scheme for parents/carers with funds going directly to school
  • Organised a special person/ Mothers Day lunch
  • Organised a huge raffle with dozens of quality prizes up for grabs
  • Organised an Easter Egg Hunt

So, what is all the fund raising for in 2019-20? 


All funds so far will go towards to renovation of the schools playground. The group are aiming to raise £2000 so that the during the summer term, the children can choose some new markings for their playground. The School Parliament is currently in the process of choosing and voting for which new markings they would like to see!
