Friends of Lodge Lane

Friends of Lodge Lane are a group of parents, former parents and staff that work together to fundraise for the school by organising events throughout the school year.

Everyone is welcome to come along and join the committee. More information about the ‘Friends of’ can be found in our school newsletters.

The main fundraising event each year is the annual summer barbeque which is a very popular event in Old Catton. This event is usually the first Friday night in July and is a great family night out.

The ‘Friends of’ also organise an annual Christmas Fayre and Easter event. Discos also take place for the children.


The ‘Friends of’ have paid for many projects in recent years including:

  • The gazebo/outdoor classroom,
  • The fence around the front lawn,
  • The new sensory garden,
  • A fence and hedge to improve the forest school area,
  • Money for educational visits for every child,
  • Road safety shows,
  • Ducks and chicks for the classroom
  • …and more!
