Friends of Red Barn


We are a group of parents and staff members whose aim is to enhance the school experience for all children. We organise events to raise money for ‘extras’ in addition to providing social opportunities for children. We work closely with children, parents, office staff and teachers.

Successful events we have organised in the past are:

  • Fun nights
  • Halloween disco
  • Cake sales
  • Ice pop sales
  • Elf Shelf
  • Bags 2 school clothes collection
  • Personalised Christmas cards
  • Christmas gifts sale

All money raised is used to pay for any additional resources that the school requires. Our most recent purchase has been new dolls prams and pushchairs for KS1. We welcome requests from school staff and children and endeavour to fulfil them.

We are always looking for enthusiastic new team members. If you would like to help, please leave your details at the school office or email us at and one of the committee members will be in touch.

Parents helping within school

Parents are welcome to help within the school. All we ask is that you do not work within the same classroom as your child and of course you do need to be DBS checked. The office will give you the necessary forms for DBS checking. No cost is involved in this process.
