The Friends of St Cuthbert Mayne – Who are we and what do we do?
The Friends of St Cuthbert Mayne is an organisation of parents whose primary aim is to facilitate fundraising for our school. We also hope to encourage closer links between home and school and to develop a real sense of community by organising events that bring parents, staff and children together.
Funds raised by the Friends are intended to provide 'extras' which are not covered by the school's income e.g playground equipment, library books.
In past years funds have been allocated to a number of initiatives including:
• All weather sports pitch
• Smart boards
• ICT equipment
• A trophy cabinet
