Friends of Northleigh School (FONS)
Welcome to the Friends of Northleigh School (FONS)
The friends association is an open community of parent volunteers working alongside the school/teachers/and other “friends” to benefit the school and ensure the best educational experience for all of its pupils.
FONS is a small charity that is independent from the school.
How is FONS organised?
FONS have a committee made up of co-chairs, treasurer, secretary and committee members. The core committee usually meets once a month, with smaller working groups to organise individual events.
How is money raised?
We raise money through charity activities and events.
- From sponsored events, summer fayre, discos and Christmas gifts– we organise events that the children look forward to and enjoy taking part in.
- FONS even have our own lottery. Be in with a chance of winning the weekly cash prize as well as the £25k jackpot – visit www.yourschoollottery.co.uk and search for Northleigh to find out more and sign up.
- Sign up to Easy Fundraising and donate to Northleigh every time you shop. Couldn’t be simpler to help the school!
How does FONS benefit the school?
All the money we raise goes back into school to benefit our children. Examples of things we have funded include:
- Cycling proficiency for Years 5
- Gym mats
- ‘Meet the Author’ sessions
- Non-Fiction books
- Sports equipment
- Part funding of coaches for school trips
How can you be involved?
Taking an active role in FONS is an amazing way to get involved with the school. There are many ways you can help, whether you have lots of time to offer or not – it all makes a difference.
We are always looking for volunteers to help at events - there is no pressure, help when you can, pick what events you want to be involved with. If you are unable to help, don’t worry – just supporting FONS and the events we run makes a huge difference to the school.
Interested? If you would like to be involved, or find out more, please email us, or join our Facebook group.
