Sir Thomas Abney Primary School

Friends of STA

Through these events, we raise money for the school to help with the cost of school trips, games, toys and books etc.  All parents and carers that give their time to Friends of STA and help out at the events, do so on a voluntary basis, so that all of the money raised goes to the school.

Friends of STA meet at the school, just after we have dropped the children off, to have a coffee and a chat.  Meetings last for roughly one hour and are very informal and everyone is welcome, including parents with babies or pre-school children. You do not need to become a member of the committee to help out at any of the events. Just ask!

How can you get involved?

We would love more parents to get involved, so whether you are new to the school or have been around for a while, but can give some time, energy or ideas, please come along to one of our meetings.  It’s a great opportunity to meet other parents over a coffee and to support your school and your child’s education.

Our key aims

  • To create a sense of community between parents, carers, children and the school.
  • Fundraise to provide resources and experiences for the children in the school.
  • To be a focus for communication between parents, carers and the school.
