What is the Friends of Oake, Bradford and Nynehead Primary School?
We’re a small, friendly group of parents who want to support the teachers and find ways to bring in more resources and experiences for our children. We meet formally each half term (recently via Zoom), to come up with ideas for fundraising events and activities. We have a committee with formal roles including Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary but need the support of our other members to make things happen.
What kind of events do you do?
We do small scale fundraisers such as non-uniform days, cakes stalls at Sports Day and film screenings, to larger events including fetes, online auctions, sport challenges and Fireworks display.
How much time would I be expected to give?
As little or as much time as you want. Some parents support us by attending meetings and helping to make decisions, whilst others like to get hands-on with organising and running events. We often split into smaller sub teams to take on different events so don’t expect you to get involved with everything (unless you want to!).
Why should I get involved?
It’s a great way to get more involved with the school and work with other parents. The funds we raise enable the school to purchase additional resources for the children that they simply wouldn’t get otherwise. This can include play equipment, sports equipment, school trips, storage facilities, books and digital resources. We know parents have a huge range of skills and experience between them that can benefit the school, so anything you can offer is greatly appreciated.
We always welcome new ideas so if you think you would like to get involved please do get in touch.

Here’s How It Works…
Just Giving school fundraising page.
We have set up a Just Giving page for the school. In 2021 we used it so people could give to our ‘Miles in May’ fundraising campaign. It will be used for future fundraising efforts, but if you are undertaking a fundraising activity and would like to do it in support of the school, you can set up a page using the link below. However, before you set up any private fundraising activities on behalf of the school, please do check with the school first.
