Friends of Peatmoor 

The Friends of Peatmoor Community Primary School is a registered charity fund raising committee run by parents in the school and some of the staff.

We are a friendly small group who actively support the school through its fund raising efforts, raising money for all those little extras that help to enhance the children’s lives in school.

  The success of the Friends depends entirely on the support of all parents and staff. We greatly appreciate any assistance. This can be from a little time helping out, to coming along to the events with family and friends.

Our activities are enjoyable and we hope that they are a good way for people to meet each other, through events such as Summer/Autumn Fayres and fashion shows. We also organise events for the children such as discos and bingo sessions. We have raised approx £15,000 since we started in 2000. These funds have enabled the school to provide extra, valuable resources for the children to use. These are just some of the items we have funded: Robolab, Interactive Whiteboards, musical instruments, Pixie (early years Roamer), IT software, benches, Christmas gifts for each classroom, Outdoor play equipment and Year 6 leaving gifts.

We usually meet once every half-term 3.00 – 4.00pm in ‘The Pod’ (school main reception area) or alternative at The Woodlands Edge Pub in the evening. Meeting dates are given on the school newsletter, please do come along and join us.  

If you would like to become involved by coming to meetings, helping at events, please email fopssecretary@peatmoor.swindon.sch.uk or speak to the school office.
