Friends of Newton Longville Primary School


Welcome to Friends of School!   


We are a small group of volunteer parents who organise a range of fundraising activities and events.  All money raised is gifted to the school to be spent in a way that directly benefits the children.  Money that has been raised in the past few years has funded new technology such as green screens, iPads and charging stations and more recently we have purchased benches for the playground, goal posts and gardening equipment.  Every year we also provide the children with an advent calendar for each class at Christmas and all Year 6 children receive a Leavers Book from us at the end of the summer term.   


Our regular fundraising activities include providing refreshments at children’s performances, selling DVD recordings of the performances as well as running our popular pre-loved uniform ‘shop’.  After a break of a couple of years due to Covid, we’re very excited to again be organising our school discos and everyone looks forward to our Krispy Kreme Fridays.  We’re always looking for new ideas and earlier this year the children loved our first ‘Make the rules day’.


To run and organise our events and activities, we’d love more parents to get involved.  It’s a great way of feeling like a part of the school team and all our volunteers give whatever time they can around working and childcare commitments.  Do get in touch with us if you have any questions either through our Facebook page or by dropping us an email to

Impact of Fundraising on Children's Learning

Thanks to the fundraising efforts of Friends of School (FOS) we have 8 new iPads in school to add to the ones we already have.  We also have a portable charging trolley so they can be easily, and safely, transported around school.  Thank you to all the parents and families who have supported the FOS fundraising events, as your donations really do impact on the learning of children in our school.
