Queniborough CE Primary School is a Church of England ex-voluntary controlled school. We have very strong links with the local Anglican church and the Diocese of Leicester. Our local vicar, Sister Mary visits the school regularly to take assemblies and support the RE syllabus in school. We visit St. Mary’s Church for special services throughout the year and also to help decorate the church for special events in the Christian calendar.
Friends of Queniborough School is open to all parents and their family members, staff, governors, and villagers.
The main aim of FOQS is to raise much-needed funds to assist and support the school. In the past, FOQS has supported many projects including contributing to purchasing the school’s computer server, reading books for across the key stages, large P.E. apparatus, audio equipment, trim trail, playground seating, each child was given a commemorative coin for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, and most recently we have purchased a “doodle” shed for the Foundation class so that they can enjoy more outdoor play.
We try to meet at least one evening a month to organise fund raising events, whether they be in the school during the school day or at weekends or evenings. At present, the group is run by a team of dedicated volunteers, although new members are always needed and welcome. Even if you do not wish to be on the committee, we are always in need of volunteers to help at events such as stall holders, serving teas & coffees, setting-up and clearing away at functions, selling raffle tickets or running the tombola. All we need is 1 or 2 hours of your time every now and then, the pleasure you get from the appreciation of your hard work is so rewarding.
As mentioned above our main goal is to raise much-needed funds which enhance all of the children’s school experience while at Queniborough Primary, so please come along and get involved!
Should you be interested, please leave your details at the school reception and a member of the committee will contact you in due course.
