Every parent/ carer of a child registered at Exning Primary School is a member of the FRIENDS!
The Friends of Exning School was formed in 1989 to raise funds and organise social events for the children and their parents.  Click here to see some of the events the Friends have organised and the where the money raised has been spent The group includes parents and local people who feel that they would like to be involved with the school's activities and over the years have had a most successful time both financially and socially, for which the school is most grateful.
Every first Friday of the month, at 9.00am, the Friends' Committee hold a coffee morning in the Canteen. Come along for free refreshments and a chat! Everybody welcome!
Help raise money for the school by either joining the 'Friends' or by supporting the events. If you do not wish to become a committee member of 'Friends' but would be able to help at some of the events please contact us as all help is gratefully accepted.

The Friends is a registered charity, the registered charity number is: 1050867.

Class Funds

Every year, funds raised by the FOES are given to each class to spend however they wish. This year, Eagles Class  and Swans Class spent half a day with Konflux which is a theatre company.  They came together as a group to put on an excellent play on the Maya Tribe for parents.
