Clewer Green School is very lucky to have an active parents and teacher association (PTA), the Friends of Clewer Green. As a registered charity, each year a committee of volunteer parents, work tirelessly to run events to raise much needed funds for the school and to create a fun, social community for our children and their families.
The Committee Members for 2020/21 are:
- Chair - Sharron Beard
- Vice-Chair - Eloise Stanway
- Secretary - Erika Fehervari
- Treasurer - Gemma Todd
- Communications - Ali Ferrucci
- Fundraising - Roxy Holdstock
- Buyer - Katie Illiffe
- School Representative - Mr Tinsley
Throughout the year there are a wide range of events that raise significant funds for the school; from sponsored events like the Windsor Half Marathon, lots of Christmas activities, bake sales run by parents of each year group, to full school involvement with the summer fair.
In 2019/2020, the £15,045 raised by Friends helped the school in the following areas:
- Maths: Maths mastery resources - textbooks and individual workbooks for each child in the school.
- Music: External music tuition - specialist music lessons for each class
- SENCO: Literacy boxes
- Virtual Reality: A virtual reality experience, where Year 3 children got to explore Ancient Egypt, bring class learning to life.
- Year 4 Leavers Book: a year book for each Y4 child which records their five years at Clewer Green.
- And we also provided annual funds for playground equipment, the office, classroom contributions for each class for valuable resources and an annual subscription to The Week.
And this year we will continue to support the school funding these vital teaching resources.
Can you help us raise £10,000 for our school this year? That's what we aiming for and it will need all your support in achieving, so how can you help?

We are always looking for new volunteers, whether you have a great idea and would like to run an event or you wold like to help now and again, just let us know.Any time given is hugely appreciated as everything makes a difference. Whether it is baking a cake for a cake sale, giving an hour of your time to man a stall at an event, being part of the organising team for an event, or coming up with a new idea for ways we can raise money.
