As a parent of a child at Cedarwood you automatically become a member of the Parents and Friends of Cedarwood. You may ask what does this mean? Well it means that, as a PFC member, you are welcome to attend the PFC committee meetings if you so wish and therefore help out with the running of the PFC. By attending a committee meeting this does not mean you have joined the committee and does not sign you up to any commitments. We appreciate that we all have busy lives and not everyone will be able to attend committee meetings. The committee meet around six times a year, but there are also various volunteer groups that may be required to meet on an ad hoc basis when planning a particular event.
So what do we ask of you as parents?
What we ask when we run events, which raise vital funds for the school, is that parents volunteer to help run the events along with the event organisers. This may be helping out for as little as half an hour. Volunteering slots can be booked on line by clicking here. This shows what time slots are available and how many helpers are required for each time slot, and so making it clear exactly when you will be needed.
Please remember that the funds raised by the PFC allow the school to buy additional equipment that enhances the experience for the children of the school. This could be sports or play equipment, tablets, laptops and other ICT equipment as examples. The more volunteers that can help out means that we lighten the load, and so we are therefore not always relying on a few people.
The school have a great team of teachers, let us make our PFC a great team too. This will aid and enhance the hard work that all the teachers provide and make your children's time at Cedarwood one that they can remember for a long time to come.

2020 was a tough year but we raised £9400 towards the school field refurbishment and provided funds for many other projects around school. This year we aim to target another £10,000 with the main focus being the school field once again.
There are currently no tasks to volunteer for
The Parents and Friends of Cedarwood Primary School is a fundraising committee run by friends of the school, including parents of children in the school, staff members, and governors. The social and fund raising events organised by the Committee provide money for much needed extra facilities and resources for the children, enhancing their learning environment.
