SUMMER FAIR update - Saturday 4th July 12noon-2pm


Non uniform day this Friday 26th June in exchange for items for the tombolas.
Volunteers will be greatly appreciated to help on Friday 26th June after drop off, and on the Fair day. Please look out for the slips in your child's book bag as each class has a "job". Also look out for raffle tickets in your childs bag- there are some fantastic prizes.


The West Jesmond School Summer fair is a great way to spend the afternoon with lots to do and raise money for our outstanding school in the process!

Summer Party!

We are throwing a Summer Party for West Jesmond parents, friends and staff on Saturday 20 June.

Tickets are £15.  Ticket form can be printed here.

(If you or your business would like to donate a raffle prize for the Summer Party, please email the Friends – thanks!)

Your school needs you!

If you would like to get more involved with your community, volunteering is a great way to "do your bit" and make new friends.  And... The Friends of West Jesmond have plenty of volunteering opportunities for you!

These can be one-off/occasional/regular, large/small, from home/at school/elsewhere - the main thing to remember is that you can give however much time you would like and must never feel obliged to do any more than that.

Please see our Jobs page for current tasks we need help with.
Thank you!

We will have another charity coffee morning next term for which some charities have already been suggested, but please let us know if you have a suggestion.

Date for your diaries: after the popularity of our last Quiz and Curry Night, which raised over £900 for the school, the date of the next one is Friday 20 March at 7.30pm.

Dates for your diaries


Our next Friends meeting is at school this Friday (23 January) at 2pm.

This is a great opportunity for those of you who find it difficult to get to our evening meetings to come along and say hello.  There's no obligation to get involved, but we'd love to see you there and hear what you have to say!

Also, please come along to our next Coffee Morning which will be in support of the Alzheimer's Society.

If you're able to do any baking for the Coffee Morning, that would be great too.  Please bring it to the school hall before or just after drop off on the day. There has been talk of "healthy bites" being a good idea at that time on a January morning - we leave it up to you!
