The Friends of Shield Road School
We are a growing group of Parents and Grandparents from across the school who enjoy meeting up and organising events to add an additional fun factor to school life and to raise funds to enrich the children’s learning.
Over the years, parents, staff and local businesses have worked tirelessly to put together and run Fayres, Fetes, Discos, Easter Egg Hunts, Movie Nights and much more. However, the Friends of Shield Road are currently undergoing a period of change. At the end of this year, we will sadly be saying goodbye to many of our long-standing members as their youngest children leave Shield Road to continue their journey onto secondary school.
This makes it an ideal time for parents and grandparents to join the team, meet new people and get involved. You will be guaranteed a warm welcome and lots of laughs. We aim to meet monthly and are currently trialling holding a daytime and evening meeting to allow as many people as possible to attend. We usually run 3-4 events per term and support school events such as coffee mornings, parties, special lunches, etc.
Please do consider joining us by getting in touch, popping along to the next meeting or lending a hand at the next event.
