A warm welcome to Oakley School and on behalf of The Friends we personally wish you and your child an exciting and rewarding journey throughout their school life.

 

The Friends work very closely with the school, not only to offer the support of an understanding friendship to both parents and carers, we also provide additional resources where needed within school for the benefit of the children.

 

During the school year we currently run four main events, the Christmas and Summer Fairs, the Easter disco and primary party and the Halloween disco and primary party.  By supporting these events you would be helping contribute funds to the school for the use of all of our children, with the added benefit of meeting up with other parents in a relaxed and familiar environment.

 

The Friends of Oakley is a registered charity and a member of the Parent Teacher Association.   We have our own Virgin Money Giving account to make fundraising even easier:

We have regular meetings to discuss fundraising and event planning. We also hold an Annual General Meeting; giving an update on finance, where monies raised have been spent and fundraising targets for the coming year. These are open meetings and all are welcome to attend.

 

The Friends meetings, together with the Parent Lunch Club and Parent Craft Clubs are run in conjunction with Kim Hill – the Family Liaison Office (FLO). These meetings give you a chance to discuss any worries or concerns you may have with Kim, and also to chat with other parents and to have an enjoyable social time. We are a very friendly group!

 

The school website www.oakley.kent.sch.uk  is updated regularly with Newsletters and dates for meetings and forthcoming events.

 

How can you become involved and help?

Parents and carers of Oakley pupils automatically become a member of The Friends.  If you can help out on a stall or at an event, make cups of tea, wash up, bake a cake, supply a raffle prize, or have an idea for a fundraising event, we would love to hear from you.

 

How is the money spent?

Money raised by ‘Friends’ has most recently been contributed towards a school people carrier and state of the art sensory integration equipment, with £5,000 donated for each project.  We are also currently supporting the fundraising for the playgrounds.  We provide the Leavers sweatshirts each year, for all the children and young people who move on from Oakley School.
