All staff and parents of pupils are members of The Friends of Earls Colne Primary School & Nursery through their connection to the school.


The Friends' committee is an active and sociable group of parents which aims to raise additional funds for the school by organising enjoyable activities and events for the children and their families such as the Summer Fete, Christmas Fayre and Fireworks display.


They help out at many of the school events, quite often serving refreshments such as their ever popular cream teas at sports day.

Fireworks 2017

This year our fireworks display was held on Saturday, 4th November, one day early!  It was an incredibly well attended night and the final count of funds raised is an amazing £6,758. These funds will help to develop an outdoor classroom for all the children to challenge themselves with their learning.  A huge thank you to everyone who came and supported our school. Here are a few photos of the fabulous display, which was delivered by Matt from Pyromania Fireworks and taken by one of our Early Year's parents, Lee Birkin.

Easy Fundraising

Support us as you shop, it won't cost you a penny more!


Find out how

The Friends have provided various major items of equipment throughout the school, provided computer software to make DVDs of the school productions and their enthusiastic fundraising has led to refurbishment of the very popular school swimming pool. They also pay for every child to have swimming lessons in the summer term.

It also promotes the school within the community.


The committee meets at least once a term and holds an AGM to which everyone is invited.


New members are always welcome on the committee and if you are new to the village, it is an excellent way to get to know other parents.
