Cranfield Friends is a registered charity that brings together the parents, grandparents, guardians, family members, friends and teaching staff of Cranfield Academy. Our main objective is:
"To enhance the education and learning environment of pupils in the school by funding additional activities or equipment not funded through the school budget".
Cranfield Friends also aims to:
- Develop more extended relationships between staff, parents and others associated with the Academy.
- Engage in activities which support the Academy and advance the education of pupils attending it.
- Provide and assist in the provision of facilities or items for education at the school (not provided by statuatory funds), as the Committee in consultation with the Headteacher shall from time to time determine.
Raising Funds and Contributing to the Life of the School:
As a group of enthusiastic staff members, parents and friends of the school, we work with vigour and enthusiasm to raise funds for the school. We do this through a variety of events for families, for the children and for adults. Many of our annual favourites include our discos, our Christmas Bazaar, our Summer Fete, our Quiz nights for adults and finally our Mother and Father's Day gift shops.
Cranfield Friends does not just raise funds for the school, we also contribute to its life through events such as Pancake Day and the Year 4 Leavers' Celebration where funds are used and members rallied to ensure that children are given fantastic opportunities to enjoy, achieve and learn with our support.
