Friends of New Swannington

Our Friends Association was set up in 2002, with charitable objectives to develop effective relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school and to provide facilities or equipment that enhances the education of pupils who attend our school. Friends of New Swannington Primary School was registered as a Charity on 29th July 2002, registration number 1093194.

We are generously supported by our members, who are all of parents and staff, which contribute towards our fundraising activities and offer practical help at our events. We also benefit from sponsorship from businesses, who invest in our children’s education by donating beautiful prizes that we can use for our raffles. Funds raised from our raffles are spent on supporting the school’s priorities for advancing the education of pupils.


Our Members have elected a committee to represent them; to develop effective relationships between the school, parents, staff and others associated and to manage the association. Our committee comprises:

Vanessa Brooks – Chair, Deputy Head Teacher

Julie Johnson – Treasurer

Suzy Burnley – Secretary

Ed Petrie – Head Teacher

Emma Mitchell
