Friends of School

The Friends of School held their Annual General Meeting in October where a new Committee was formed. We also said goodbye to some of our long term friends but we welcomed some new faces.

Below is a list of the current Friends Committee:
Kirsty Patrick - Chair
Simone Fox - Vice Chair
Katie Sawyer - Secretary
Abigail Taylor - Treasurer
Jessica Foulds
Katherine Honeywood
Amanda Harrison
Jen Clewley
Nicola Weightman

The Friends of North Duffield School regularly meet to discuss fundraising ideas. This is to allow access to essential equipment and materials that the school budget does not cover. If any parent or carer has any suggestions for future fundraising activities or wishes to comment on past events, please speak to a member of our Committee, email us at or pop a note in our mailbox at Friends Corner in the front playground.

We welcome all feedback and new members / volunteers on the Committee. 
The Friends of North Duffield Community Primary School are a committee from the community that help raise funds for the school. Over the past few years they have held fairs, quizzes and other events, and have purchased much needed books for the library, equipment and furniture. If you would like to be on the committee, or help with any events, please contact any of the committee members – your help would be gratefully received!

Members of the Friends Committee now have ID badges, so we can be easily identified at any school events.

  • Simone Fox - Secretary

    I've lived in the Village for 7 years. Previously I lived in London and worked first as a professional ballet and contemporary dancer and then moved in to retail where I worked as a manager for both Next and Gap. I moved to York in 2000 and after working for Lacoste as a visual merchandiser I now work at the Jug and Bottle, a deli / off-licence / cafe in Bubwith. I have 2 children, Ronnie (7 years) and Lily (2 1/2 yrs). I'm married and we have a beagle called Frankie.

  • Katherine Honeywood - Vice Chair

    Hi, I’m Katherine Honeywood and I have been on the school committee for 3 years. My role now is as Vice Chair and School-Committee link. I am happily married and have 2 girls aged 15 and 12 who both attended North Duffield Primary School but have now moved on to Barlby High School. I have lived in the village for 14 years and 6 of those years I’ve worked as a TA at the school. In my spare time I enjoy walks in the moors with my family and socialising with family and friends.
