Friends of Eye School
FRIENDS of Eye is a group of parents, carers, teachers and local businesses who work together to raise much needed funds to support our children’s learning.
Over the past few years, you have helped us to raise £13,500 for ICT, through a wide variety of activities. We're delighted to let you know that these funds are being used to buy:
- an upgraded computer server - a valuable asset for the whole school;
- 32 brand new Chromebooks - a complete class set, which will benefit the whole school and transform the children’s ICT lessons; and
- a fantastic interactive white board with a stand - to complement the Year 5 classroom layout and replace their existing inoperable whiteboard.
We’ve also recently subsidised school trips, paid for the school’s Twinkl subscription, purchased guided reading books and bought Christmas presents for all of the children.
We’re now aiming to fundraise £8,000 to completely revamp and restock our school library. The project plan is to fully utilise the incredible space and fill it with new reading material for all of the children.
This can only be achieved with your continued help and support. We really appreciate everyone who has either attended, purchased tickets for, or contributed towards one of our many events including movie nights and tombolas as well as the summer and Christmas fayres to name but a few. Thank you!
- School Disco – Friday 18th October.

Once again we would like to thank Mel Sizer and Claire Fazio and all others who have led, Chaired and supported Friends of Eye School over the years.
Anyone who has a child at the school or who is involved in the local community is welcome to join us. We’d love to see lots of new faces at our meetings (one or two each term), or if you can’t do this you can still help us by getting involved in the activities.
We’re always happy to have more volunteers and new ideas. If you’d like more information, please contact one of the Friends above or leave your details with the school office.
