Ivydale League of Friends

For those of you who haven’t come across us yet, we’re a PTA charity run by a group of parents dedicated to fundraising for our school by bringing some fun events to the children and families of Ivydale School. You may have heard us referred to as Ivydale League of Friends or, as we’re more commonly known, ‘ILOF’.


What do we do? We’re here to make money for extra resources for the school, and promote a friendly and inclusive social community for children, parents, carers and teachers at Ivydale.


Where does the money go? The money raised from our events helps fund amongst other things school trips, play equipment, learning resources, sport, music, art and technology facilities and visits by performance groups, authors and workshops. The events also open up the school to the wider community, ensuring it's firmly rooted in the heart of the local area.

Fun Run Co-ordinator - As you may be aware, Sammy Linton is sadly stepping down this year from organising the Ivydale Primary Family Fun Runs.  Not only has Sammy ensured the event has remained fully inclusive, her fun runs have raised a whopping £25k+ over the 7 years she's organised them! We want to publically thank her for all the hard work and effort she’s put it.  A fantastic achievement!

This means that ILOF is urgently in need of someone keen on becoming the next fun-run event coordinator. If you would rather plan a race than run it, this role could be for you! To find out more about what’s involved, email
