Welcome to the Friends of North Heath (FoNH)
During each academic year FoNH organises and, with the support of our amazing School Community, runs recurring and special events. Our regular events are as diverse as Summer and Christmas fairs, Christmas card design and DVD projects, Easter events, adult quiz nights, pre-loved uniform sales and textile recycling collections. While our special events have ranged from sponsored events, virtual balloon races, art competitions, community recipe books and doorstep photography sessions. To find out more about FoNH visit https://www.northheathfriends.co.uk/ The FoNH also support the School in other ways.
Under our Parentkind governing document ‘Friends’ funds are required to be spent on items and events which ‘Advance the Education of Pupils’ and are not always provided by the School’s budgets. This helps make our children’s learning experiences more fulfilling and exciting.
Since 2010 FoNH have purchased equipment to support every pupils’ emotional, recreational and social wellbeing in the form of sustainable outdoor benches for ‘Quiet Zones’, outdoor field shelter for shading, sports kits for cricket and athletic county events, gymnastic equipment, drinking water fountains, basketball posts, visiting theatre groups events, school trips, individual pupil stationary classroom sets, classroom dictionaries/thesaurus and have, significantly, donated to the funding the refurbishment of the School’s library.
In the last few years FoNH have also purchased classroom IT technology to support every pupils’ educational journey in the form of visualisers, laptops and iPads. So, to continue this support, 2021 and beyond sees FoNH seeking to raise £2,275 per classroom CleverTouch® screen so that every pupil is able to participated in lessons that have the technology to bring their learning to life.
Anyone can immediately help us make a difference with donations both large and small. Matching our pupil numbers, if 420 people donated:
* just £5 it could help FoNH fund 1 screen;
