Friends of Herringham

Herringham Primary Academy PTA is known as The Friends of Herringham

We are a group of volunteer parents, grandparents and ex-pupils who fund raise for the children’s benefit at the school.  We have been around for several years organising events such as the Summer bounce, Christmas Fayre, Easter raffle, discos, Pub Quiz Nights (adults only!) and helping at Christmas events and sports days, providing tea and coffee to spectators. 

The money we raise goes towards equipment for the children; outdoor play equipment, Trim Trails for both Key Stages, additional books, storage sheds, wet play equipment, playground activity equipment, Early Years play equipment and donations such as contributions towards trips and visits and the Leavers disco.  Our latest contribution was £4,000 towards the Library Hut.

We meet approximately once every half term at the school with a member of the Senior Leadership Team to discuss forthcoming events and fundraising ideas for our next project.  Although our events are well supported, there is always room for more volunteers,  whether you want to be a member of the committee or just a casual helper—you are always welcome to come along to our meetings, which are advertised in the school newsletter. Take a look at our booklet in the downloads column on the left.

Without members, our organisation will fail and the extra funding for the school will be lost.  To contact us on any matter regarding the Friends, message our Facebook page @friendsofherringham or email  We would love to hear from you!
