Friends of Castle Mead
The Friends of Castle Mead School is a member of the PTA-UK.
Its aim is to support the school by raising funds to support the development of the school not provided for by the normal school budget. We work in partnership with the school to organise and support events that enrich the curriculum for the children and give the community the opportunity to get involved with the school.
The main focus for fundraising has been the development of the school grounds and we have raised funds and provided a PA system, microphones, musical instruments and raised planters in the school grounds. We also run discos, cake sales, Christmas and Summer fayres and many other family events which we hope the community will enjoy.
All parents and family members of pupils past and present are “friends” of the school and our events and meetings are open to everyone.
Our AGM is held every Autumn and all parents and carers are invited to attend and find out more about what we do. A committee is elected and this committee works throughout the year to organise and plan our activities.
