About

Friends of Greenfield School endeavour to support Greenfield School through fundraising, organising and directing community events. Making this accessible for as many families as possible, we hope, will maximise the benefit received by all.  We look forward to an exciting year ahead for the school as it continues to thrive and have planned a number of events for Greenfield families to benefit the community; both school and associated charities.

NEW! Greenfield’s SEND Parent/Carer Support Group Coffee Morning

Are you a parent or carer of a child with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities and/or who has some challenges with aspects of their learning and development?

If so, you are warmly invited to our half termly SEND Coffee Morning at The Maybury Inn from 08:30am on Thursday 17th October and Thursday 5th December 2019.

It will be a really informal group where the focus will be on supporting parents and carers of children with a range of SEND, including but not limited to dyslexia, dyspraxia, autism, ADHD and visual or hearing conditions. If the group is well attended, we are hoping to have different professionals, such as speech and language therapists, coming along sometimes, and school SEND and EAL staff will be invited on occasion too.

Why not come along, meet other parents and carers and gain some valuable information regarding the support and services that might be available for you and your child?

This has been organised by Jo Dilworth, who is a mum to children with SEN, and who works in the field. Email jo.dilworth@gmail.com with any queries.

WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS TERM?

What a way to kick-off the new academic year on our glorious new site!!! Thanks to all those who attended, rallied, organised, participated and grafted to deliver our very first Greenfield Festival. We were humbled to have so many of our community in attendance. A moving in party to remember!

This term we have our AGM, a spooky edition of Joglet with Froglets (2k children’s fun run) and our termly coffee morning collaboration with the Future World Team. We are also arranging a group trip to the panto in Woking! Watch the school newsletter for more information.

We are also gearing up toward our very first parent/teacher panto “Cinderfella" and our annual formal event which this year takes the form of a very special Burns Night.

 

THANK YOU!!! what a year

Did you know that FroGS have already contributed £10k of equipment to our new school?  

The collaborative effort of all the parents and teachers at Greenfield is what makes this organisation what it is. We are very proud to be able to support the school in this manner. Click below to see how the money was spent.
