Parents and Friends
Who We Are
The Parents and Friends (P&F) of Mortimer St. John’s is a small committee made up of parents, staff and the Headteacher. We are a committed and friendly group who, through a rice and varied programme of events held during the year, raise extra funds for the direct benefit of the children of Mortimer St. John’s.
The P&F also exists to provide closer links between home and school and is an excellent way to bring school staff, parents relatives, friends and the wider community together socially in support of the school. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to get involved.
We are very fortunate that the P&F is an integral part of the school community. The P&F has raised thousands of pounds, all of which has been spent on improving equipment, facilities and resources to enhance the children’s education.
The P&F Association consists of annually elected officers including a Chair, Treasurer and Secretary. We also have a number of other key roles including a Catering Co-ordinator, Foundation Stage Representative and Communication Lead. we meet on a regular basis, usually once or twice per term, with smaller groups meeting, as necessary, to organise our bigger fund raising events.
How Can You Get Involved?
There are lots of ways that you can help and support your child and every other child at the school through the P&F. The P&F organises various social and fundraising events over the course of the year, including:
- Bonfire and Fireworks Display
- Children’s Disco
- Kids on the Catwalk Fashion Show
- Christmas Fair
Lending a hand before our events is invaluable. It really is a case of ‘many hands make light work’. It doesn’t matter if you can’t help on a regular basis or even if you can’t come into school. There are always little jobs that can be done from home if you have half an hour to spare, for example delivering leaflets, wrapping gifts, baking cakes etc. It really does all help!
We are always looking for new and innovative fund raising ideas so why not come along to our next meeting and share your thoughts with us.
