Friends of Dishforth School

Friends of the School is an invaluable part of our school life. Every parent is automatically a member of the ‘Friends of Dishforth School’ which is run by a small but active committee.

Friends of Dishforth School aim to bring people together to have a good time and to raise money. All funds raised are spent on your children. Supporting the Friends of Dishforth School’ is a very positive way of helping to achieve the best for your children.  Please see below about how you can simply raise funds for school while you shop.

Our upcoming event and purchase information is below. We are looking to buy school hats and water bottles with the school logo on.  We will update you soon!


Friends have a regular stock of school winter and summer uniform. We also have PE kit and school bags. If you know the size of an item you would like please just let Lesley Coulthard know and she will bring you your request if it is in stock.

On Friday 19th May in the playground Lesley will have all the stock on sale at 3:15pm onwards. Perhaps you need some spare uniform or some summer uniform?  All the uniform we will be on sale for just a few pounds, great to have in for those days the children are painting!

If you cannot make this date, as above you can just let Lesley or Sarah Lynch know and we will organise your uniform to be in the school office so that you can collect it.

A big thank you to Lesley who kindly collects the uniform, washes it and stores it for us.

If you have any uniform to donate please pass to Lesley or Sarah. Thank you very much.


At the request of parents as promised we arranged the date so more of you would be able to attend.

Friends of Dishforth School warmly invite parents and their friends to a quiz and supper night at the Black Swan in Dishforth on Saturday 3rd June, we ask everybody to be seated for the quiz to start at 7:30pm.

The night will start with a quiz set by Jill at the Black Swan followed by supper which gives chance for a catch up and there will be a Fizz raffle.  After supper, should you wish to stay longer there will be the opportunity to purchase a fun game of Bingo.

Tickets for the quiz and supper are £5 each.  You are more than welcome to invite your friends.  Teams can be up to 6 people.

Please ask at the office if you wish to purchase tickets.



Friends of School have been working with the children to create a fabric ‘shopper’ bag.  Each child has drawn a picture of themselves to a given template.  The teachers have also had their pictures drawn by the children All of the pictures will be printed onto the bag; covering both sides.  The bags have now been ordered.  It is anticipated that our orders will arrive in approximately 4 weeks time.  There may be a few spare so if you have missed placing your order, please contact us or the school office leaving £4.50 to secure a bag.

There is an example of a bag of the bag style in the front office, our bag will be similar, however, it will have children on both sides with our school logo. Here is our template just before we added to school logo and school year.
