About Friends


“Friends of Cliddesden Primary school” is the charity that is run by parents to help raise funds for use in extending and developing the learning experience of each pupil within the school. This is done in a fun and exciting way so that children and adults alike will enjoy the days out.


There are a series of events carried out within the academic year, however our main event is the Summer Fete and BBQ with other smaller events run throughout the rest of the year. We are always looking for people to get involved in friends and put forward new and different ideas! Whether you can make meetings or not, any help is always appreciated.


The money that has been raised over recent years has been used to provide a subsidy for school trips, Books for the Library, Computer Equipment, resources, swimming lessons plus much more…


We hope you all get involved.
