Thank you to our Committee for the academic year 2020/21.  We are delighted to continue to welcome  Hannah McCann as Chair and Donna Hourihan as Vice-Chair.

Visit the Friends Page for full committee details.  Thank you so much to everyone for volunteering.

Currently in the time of coronavirus we are unable to organise in-school events but our friends are working hard behind the scenes with new ideas and of course the school lottery and the pre-loved uniform sales are still running and raising funds for the school.

School Lottery

We are running our own school lottery which has a draw every Saturday.

The Friends of Epping Primary organise fun events throughout the school year to raise money for the educational benefit of the pupils that attend. Last year’s events included a Christmas Fayre, Quiz Night, Summer Fayre and Disco.

Delighted to say that in 2019 the Friends - with the support of the whole school community - were able to raise the amazing sum of £13,753!!!

These vital funds - and the fantastic amount raised by the Friends in the previous year -
have already benefited the education of all pupils at our school. 

Last year alone we have funded new interactive whiteboards, roleplay equipment, valuable First Aid workshops, the incredibly useful E-Safety workshops (including the very well attended parents session, and so much more. 

Just have a look below to see exactly what they've raised and how they've spent it.

For more details on what they get up to have a look at the latest Friends Newsletter.

I look forward to seeing you at our events.

Our social calendar this year may look quite different, however we are keen to continue providing support via fundraising in any way we can and thinking of new and innovative ways to run events and have fun.
