Friends of Vicarage Park

Welcome to the Friends of the School page.

We are a registered charity, run by a small committee of parents and carers, with the aim of raising additional funds for the school to be put towards the educational needs of the children of Vicarage Park.

We are always looking for extra support, as we are a small team.  This can be in the form of baking, the donation of tombola prizes, or help at each of the events.  The more support and help we have in the running and in attendance at our fundraisers, the more money we can give to school to support their educational projects.  We also have a bit of fun along the way, too and it is a great way of making new friends!

Our committee:

  • Michaela Hudson (Chair) - Yr2 & Yr5
  • Lisa Tallon (Vice Chair) - Yr2
  • Nina Frearson (Treasurer) - Yr5
  • Justine Allen (Secretary) - Yr2
  • Jo Conway - Y4 & Yr6
  • Lynsey Bagot - Yr2
  • Cathy (Monaghan) Scott - Yr1 & Yr5
  • Donna Mitchell - Nursery & Yr2
  • Rachel Leigh - Yr1 & Yr4

If you would like more information about joining the committee or helping at our events, please contact us on friendsofvicaragepark@outlook.com or speak to one of us in the playground.

Funding:

In previous years, we have helped to pay for new outdoor play equipment in both playgrounds, new reading books, school branded sports uniform (so the children look the part when representing the school), and 15 new iPads for use in class.

Every year we provide:

  • Book Bags for our new starters
  • Fruit for Key Stage 2
  • Leavers Hoodies for Year 6
  • £7 per child towards their class trips / class resources
  • £400 per term to support a project that benefits the whole school

This year, with your help, we are looking to fund a nursery interactive whiteboard, Year 2 phonics listening centre, 50% contribution to both Cumbria Music Services and 15 new iPads.

Thank you for your continued support.
