Neatishead CofE Primary School

FONS (Friends of Neatishead School)

FONS are a group of people who volunteer their time to help organise and run fund-raising events and fun activities throughout the school year. FONS is open to everyone who wants to help support the school and the children, and you do not have to join everyone is automatically a member, whether you are a parent, a grandparent or a carer.

All monies raised by FONS go directly to benefit the children and the school, and over the years we have raised thousands of pounds. Recently we have helped to fund school trips, paid for minibuses, held discos, the Christmas Fair, Easter Egg hunts and the annual Summer BBQ. We have paid for text books, P.E. equipment, gardening equipment and have helped to upgrade the school library.

We have a committee that meets termly in the village pub in the evening, and it’s a great way to get to know people, as well as make a valuable contribution to the school. We are always looking for new members, and we are keen to have as many people as possible to join us. We are a very welcoming and friendly team. If you are interested, please come along to our next meeting or speak to Helen in the school office or anyone on the committee. However, if you don’t want to be a committee member, there are plenty of other ways that you could support us, such as helping out at events.
