(which is only open to parents of John Blandy School children) to keep up to date with any news.

Get involved!


All teachers, parents or carers automatically become a friend of John Blandy and can get involved with helping around the school, organising fun events for the children and raising additional funds to help supplement resources and activities for them.


Across England school budgets have been cut. That’s why Friends plays such an integral part in the school community, raising much needed school funds to ensure John Blandy is a well-resourced school and our children can all achieve their full potential.
