Friends of South Otterington School - Now on Facebook!

Every parent with a child in our school is automatically a member of the Friends' association.  Details of its activities are circulated to all parents who are asked to support functions as fully as possible.  The Friends of our school organise social and educational activities for both children and adults, using their funds to purchase extra materials and equipment for school and to subsidise transport costs.  The members of the Friends committee are as follows:


Chair: Mrs Maria Peacock; Vice Chair: Mrs Emma Fryer; Secretary: Mrs Sarah Meakin and Treasurer: Mrs Vicky Tosh


Most recently, the Friends have raised funds to supplement our lottery grant to purchase new playground equipment for the children. Previously, the Friends have purchased a new sound system and stage lighting for the hall to be used during productions; a new trolley of laptops; class iPads and new chairs for all of the children. Every year, they pay for an amazing theatre company to perform for the whole school and frequently contribute to trips and events for the children. We are extremely grateful for all of their hard work.

You can order on line at or collect an order form from the rack in the School Reception Area.  Please ensure you enter the School Reference Number: 18255 when placing your order as school will receive 25% commission.
