Friends of Coldfall

Friends of Coldfall is a registered charity run by parent volunteers to raise extra funds for the school to enhance the children’s time at Coldfall and the educational experience they receive. With budget cuts, this is more crucial than ever.

Last year, Friends of Coldfall, with the support of the parents, guardians and carers, raised just over £27,000. The raised money has funded a variety of valuable projects in the past such as playground equipment, school mini bus funding for 5 years, orienteering equipment, school trips, contribution for events and building and classroom updates.

Friends of Coldfall are currently funding the new climbing frame in the playground, and the next project is to update every reading corner in every classroom.


The work that Friends of Coldfall does adds to the experience of each and every child at Coldfall Primary.


Key events run by Friends of Coldfall are the renowned Fireworks Night and the Winter and Summer Fairs. Other events include a welcome picnic for new Reception families, a Valentines Disco for the children and social nights for parents such as Strictly Come Dancing and Comedy Nights.

Next events:

  • Comedy Night – Friday 28 September 2018
