Friends of Bridport Primary School

The Friends of Bridport Primary School is a group of parents and teachers which organises events and activities to raise money for the school. This helps to pay for things that are not funded from other sources.

In the past we have contributed to the purchase of first Aid course for year 6, trip to Poole Harbour Challenge, playground equipment, the outdoor classroom, waterproof clothing, science and drama workshop, leavers ceremony, PA System, sensory room, PAL's bibs, t-shirts for the school choir, new indoor gym apparatus, trip to the Lyric Theatre Christmas show, travelling pantomime, and a working history workshop.

This year the Friends are donating money for Poole Harbour Challenge, Christmas parties, Book Week events, library furniture, Year Group contributions, iPads, travelling pantomime, travel costs for trips, PALS equipment and a maths learning day.
