What we do

We meet once a term normally to discuss and plan our next fundraising event. It is a great way to meet other parents/carers and contribute to supporting our fabulous school. Our next meeting is on Monday 5th February 2018 at Elaine's house 7pml. Contact Elaine Crooks for more details.

New projects this Academic year

The School Council and the Friends of Burgh have been working hard together this academic year to develop fundraising in the school. The school Council have devised a new logo which is now being used by the Friends.


The Friends have also bought a new noticeboard which is on the outside wall of school next to the children's entrance. Please keep checking this for news and up to date events being organised.


The Friends and school have worked together this term to make a delighful tea towel which has self portraits of the children and staff on. These have been bought by Parents and very well supported but we do have approximately 10 left. If you would like to purchase one please see Elaine Crooks.
