Welcome to the friends of DBCPS (FoDBCPS) section of the website. We are all about the children here at DBCPS and want to make as much money as possible through FUNdraising. All money raised will go straight towards what the children need to create the FUN at school.
We will endeavour to keep you updated of upcoming events, feedback on events held, money raised and where that money has been spent, via Facebook, the kiosk in the playground, text messages, the website and posters and notices around the exterior of the school.
As a newly formed FoDBCPS, we are asking for as much help and support as possible. Anything from giving 20 minutes of your time selling tickets, to days approaching local shops and companies, asking them to donate raffle prizes for one of our fairs.
If you are part of a company, own a business, or have a particular hobby that could help us with sponsors, prizes, advertising, printing etc, we would love to hear from you.
We can be easily contacted by completing the contact form below, or by popping along to the regular coffee morning meetings on Mondays at 9.20am (straight after the 9am celebrations assembly) in the school hall.
We look forward to seeing you at upcoming events.
Chair: Mrs Joanne Harrison
I am Joanne Harrison, a mother of 2 children in Years 3 and 5 at DBCPS and excited to be the newly appointed Chair of the Friends of Dartford Bridge Community Primary School. I was born in England but was fortunate enough to grow up in Australia where my parents and family still reside. I came back to the UK to travel straight after I finished school and have been here ever since. In my past professional life, I have been a Legal Secretary at Universal Music and Avalon Television and an Executive Assistant to the Financial Director and CEO at Channel 4.
I have been living within the Bridge Community for 6 years now and enjoy getting involved in all events held on the Bridge through the various resident committees and the Beacon Church. Its a lovely way to meet new people and to form a strong local community. I am a very proactive person and have recently opened a business with another parent at the school looking after pets on the Bridge. I thrive on organising events and enjoy watching everyone have a brilliant time. The FoDBCPS are also here to raise money to put back into the school to make long and lasting happy memories for our growing children.
Vice Chair: Mrs Fiona French
I am Fiona French, I have 3 children currently at DBCPS in Years Reception, 1 and 5, I am excited and proud to be the newly appointed Vice Chair of the Friends of Dartford Bridge Community Primary School. I have lived my whole life in South East London and Kent. After leaving school at 18 I started work as a civilian member of Police Staff for the Metropolitan Police. I left this in May 2017 to spend more time with my children as they are growing up too fast!
I have been living within the Bridge Community for 6 years now, and whilst working shifts was unable to get involved as much as I would have liked. However now that I am a full-time mum, I cannot wait to get more involved. My family and I love living here as there is such a huge community spirit that is carried on in the School. I love to help others and want the best for all the children at the Bridge. As Vice Chair, along with the other members of The FoDBCPS, I am here to help raise as much money possible to give the school and all the children the best future possible as well as making lasting memories that they will cherish.
Treasurer: Mr Jonathan Charlton
I’m Jonathan Charlton and my son is in Year 3 at the school. I am also a local resident within the Bridge Community. Since my son joined the school, I have volunteered with the Friends of DBCPS at Christmas and Summer fairs and really enjoyed being part of the schools events team. As the newly elected Treasurer of the FoDBCPS team this year I aim to ensure the money made from all our fantastic school events gets put right back into the school to benefit all of the students in their learning environment.
