Friends of Dawn House

The Friends of Dawn House are our amazing school (parents and staff) fundraising group which doubles up to provide social opportunities for families who do not have the 'school gates' opportunities.


The Friends of Dawn House School works as a collaboration to enhance the work that supports our children here.                  

We aim to:


  • To provide opportunities for parent/carers to get in touch with one another to provide a forum for support and sharing.
  • To be involved in the life of the school in supporting events to enhance the experiences of our children.
  • To raise money to be used for the direct benefit of pupils.


How We Do It


The Friends of Dawn House organises shops in school for special days such as Mothers’ Day, Father's Day and for Christmas so children can purchase gifts for their family and friends, a Summer Fayre during sports day and a Christmas Fayre alongside the Christmas show.  


Benefits for our Pupils


Funds raised through activities have been used to benefit children in school for example such as furnishing the Wellbeing Suite, purchasing the outdoor classroom, outdoor play equipment for key stage 2 and additional specialist resources for the occupational therapy department.
