Welcome to Friends of Tankersley.

This group has been founded, with a united goal  – To organise fun and worthwhile activities for the children, while raising funds for the school.

The FOT is here for you – parents, grandparents, guardians, teachers and all of the children who attend Tankersley St Peters.

Everyone is welcome to be a member of the group. It is up to you how involved you would like to be. Whether it is attending the meetings and helping organise events, or maybe just to help where you can. You can help as often or as little as you like. 

The FOT have regular meetings and everyone is welcome to come along. The meetings are a chance to plan events, evaluate past events and to look at new fundraising ideas.

The main aim of the FOT is to raise money, so that our children can have extra resources and experiences the school would not otherwise be able to fund. All money raised by the FOT is given to the school.

The FOT are always looking for new volunteers; if you are interested in becoming a member, please contact Mrs Lack
