Welcome to the Friends of Sandcross
Friends of Sandcross exists to help create a sense of community to raise money for Sandcross Primary School. Our aim is to enable all the children to participate in activities and to have access to a wide range of resources and equipment.
As the parent, carer or teacher of a child at Sandcross School, you are automatically a member of Friends of Sandcross and you can play as big or small a part as you would like. There are opportunities throughout the year to offer your support, including helping out at new Parent Induction Evenings, serving on Ice Cream Fridays, volunteering for events or stepping forward at the AGM to join the committee.
This year, Friends of Sandcross have agreed to help subsidise some shade sails for the playing fields. These will benefit all of the children on hot days as they will provide shade for outdoor lessons and during all playtimes.
The more parents we have actively helping, the more events we can run. This means more events that foster community and more money raised for the school - please get in touch with us! For details of future events, please see the 'Events Calendar' below.

Past Friends of Sandcross Events
Events held in the past include the following:
For Christmas 2017 a Grotto was created, with games and craft activities, a secret gift wrapping room and of course, a visit with Santa in his Grotto.
Circus Normandie & Autumn Fair
At the end of September 2017, Circus Normandie came to Sandcross School and ran workshops teaching basic skills to the children. 50 children then put on a show for the rest of the school. At the weekend, Circus Normandie put on four professional shows which Friends of Sandcross sold tickets for and also ran an Autumn Fair.
Held in Year groups after school, the children love to 'boogie' to music with their friends. This is a fun way to raise money that always prove very popular!
Ice Cream Fridays
During the Summer months, Friends of Sandcross sell a range of ice creams from our catering trailer which children and adults can enjoy on their way home. These have proved very popular!
Payments given to Sandcross School
All profits from events run by Friends of Sandcross go to support the work of Sandcross School. Below are listed some of the ways we have supported the school over the past few years.
