Who are the Friends of Roseacre?

The Friends are an informal group of volunteers who work in partnership with the school to enhance fundraising possibilities. Examples of how the money raised is used are below:

  • provide each year group with a ‘spending pot’
  • make a contribution to the purchase of a leavers hoodie for year 6 pupils.
  • purchase a Christmas gift for every pupil at the academy
  • contribute to school visits inc a Year 6 visit to Chillfactore
  • Pay for a poet to visit school for a day to provide every child with an opportunity to write a poem
  • buy Welly stands for each Reception class
  • Contribute to the funding of music lessons for children in year 3 and 4

When do the Friends meet?

We’d love to welcome you to our meetings, which take place 6 times per school year, usually on the 2nd Tuesday of each half term at 6pm. The meetings are held in the staff room and you enter the school though the main reception door on Stonycroft Avenue. If the meeting times are not convenient you can still be involved just email  for more details.
