Friends of St. Loys

Who are the Friends of St Loys?Friends' logo

The Friends Association is a group of parents that has an interest in the well-being and future of St Loys. We meet once or twice a term (time and place are flexible). Anyone who shares our concerns is welcome to come along to a meeting to see what we are about – you do not have to make a commitment to join.

What do the Friends do?

The Friends’ principle aim is to organise school events and activities such as the Christmas Fayre, Summer Fête, fitness bootcamp, cake bakes, discos, BBQs, and other events that will capture the children’s imagination and create excitement whilst raising funds for the school and its activities. Money raised from these events goes into the Friends’ Fund. We also support St Mary & St Peter’s Lois Weedon Church and Weedon Lois village fundraising activities.

What is the Friends’ fund used for?

The fund is used to help out the school by purchasing various items / equipment and paying for some activities for the children, e.g. chairs and whiteboards for the newer classrooms, the coach to and from the Christmas pantomime, gym equipment, the play equipment and benches in the park. We also help out with other appeals related to the school, such as the Premises Development Appeal for the newer part of the school and the school hall. We also raise money for the Lois Weedon church, for example the Church Restoration Appeal and arts and crafts materials for messy church.

How can you help?

There are various ways to get involved and this could be regularly or just a one-off – we understand that everyone has a hectic schedule to keep. You could:

If you would like to be involved, please let us know how by emailing the school. Don’t worry, you will not be committing yourself to permanent involvement, we just want to get an idea of anyone that would be happy to have some involvement but can’t always get to the meetings.
