Update Message from FACES

Dear Parents,

FACES (Fundraisers of Ashington CE School) are delighted to announce the return of our popular Farm Walk and Family Festival on Friday 8th July from 4.30-8.00pm.

There will be a trail to follow across the farm and woodland area adjacent to our school, leading to our forest school area.

On return to school we will have a delicious barbecue, a well-stocked beer and wine tent, and LIVE music from THE OTHER’S BROTHER’S.

If you would like to take part in the walk please arrive at the school anytime between 4.30 and 5.30. There are no tickets required for this event and if you are not able to join us for the walk please come along from 5.30 till 8.00pm for food and fun. All welcome. The walk is suitable for off-road buggies. However, we ask to please not bring dogs along.

We are looking forward to an enjoyable and relaxed family evening. Hopefully the sun will shine for us so we can raise lots of much needed funds for our school. 

Many thanks



Friends of Ashington CE School (FACES) are delighted to have been chosen this year as one of the Co-op’s Local Causes.
If you are already a Co-op member you probably will have received an email asking you to choose your cause for this year.
If you nominate a cause, every time you buy Co-op branded goods over the next year they will donate 1% of what you spend to your community. We would be very grateful if you would consider choosing FACES as your local cause for the upcoming year. https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes

FACES offers opportunities through fundraising, to guide pupils through their first stage of life with the aim of setting them off on the right path. Our fundraising is essential to the school budget, enabling pupils to enjoy treats as well as contributing towards basic and much-needed essentials.

If you are not a Co-op member please consider following this link https://www.coop.co.uk/membership to sign up. 1% may not sound like a huge amount but believe us, this can add to hundreds (even thousands) of pounds. It only takes a few minutes to complete the form and seconds to swipe your membership card when you shop. As well as donating money to your local cause you will also receive 5% of what you spend put back into your own Co-op account. You’ll be surprised how quickly it can add up.

Thank you in advance for your support


Dear Parents,

A couple of people have asked me recently about our annual Fireworks event and also whether we are doing a Pantomime trip this year.
Due to various circumstances neither event will be going ahead this term.

I can confirm that our Fireworks event is booked for November 2022 so it will be back.

If you would like to keep up to date with FACES information please consider joining our Facebook group “FACES (Fundraisers of Ashington CE School)”.

We also have a WhatsApp group for parents who are interested in helping to organise or volunteer at school events. If you would like to be added to that please let your Class Rep know.

For more information please contact Shelley Toovey via the school office or your class rep.

Current class reps are:

Reception Class – Katie Marsh, Rosalind Pollard

If any other Year One, Two or Reception Class parents would be interested in becoming Class Reps please contact me via the school office or our Facebook group as it is always nice to have two (or three) for each class.

Many thanks

Shelley Toovey


Message for New Parents joining us in September 2021

Dear Reception Class parents,

I am emailing on behalf of our school fundraising committee FACES (Fundraisers of Ashington CE School). Under normal circumstances I would have attended your welcome meeting with Miss Martlew back in September and introduced myself.

My name is Shelley (I’m sure a lot of you already know me), I have three boys (years 8, 5 and 1) and I currently run FACES.

FACES usually hold two or three large events a year to raise  money for the school. For example in the next school year (all being well) we would like to host our annual Fireworks Event in November, a Ladies Night Fashion Show in March and a Summer event in June/July 2022.

All the money raised goes back into school. We often buy equipment for the children to use in and out of the classroom including at Forest School. We pay for fun workshops and author visits. We have funded numerous whole school trips to see a Christmas Pantomime at the theatre and recently contributed toward purchasing 64 Chrome books for the school.
