Friends of Abbeywood

Welcome from the Friends of Abbeywood Community School

Everyone is welcome! Do you have the know how or the experience of fund raising? Could you help fundraise for extra resources for Abbeywood's students? Even if you are unable to make our meetings we would like to hear from you. You can email facs.abbeywood@gmail.com

Your FACS committee needs you!

FACS is a group of parents, support staff, teachers and members of the community who raise funds to pay for the 'extras' that cannot be funded from the school budget and will ultimately benefit our children.

Everybody is welcome to get involved. It’s a great way of meeting other parents and making friends! We are currently a very small team, always looking for new members and help at events. Please email to facs.abbeywood@gmail.com or visit our Facebook page, if you’d like any further information about how you can help. You will never be pressurised into doing something you don't want to! Helping out for an hour or so at events is all we're looking for.  It's a great way of meeting other parents and being involved in your child's school.
