FONS AGM 10 Nov 2017

Parent Governor Ballot

The results are in!  Following our count, Mr Symes has been elected as the new parent governor.  Due to also showing a strong skill set, Mrs Kyriacou and Mrs Zealand have also been co-opted to the Governing Body.  We are delighted to welcome all 3 parents on to our Governing Body team.

Parent Champions Wanted

Could you be a parent champion?  We are looking to recruit parents who would be willing to help answer questions and to give informal advice to fellow parents, either by a chat in the playground/at the gate or via email.  You wouldn’t be expected to know everything, just to act as another link between the school and home.  We know that sometimes it is easier to speak to other parents for advice rather coming in to school.

Does this sound interesting to you? If you would like further information, please speak either to Miss Walters or Miss Cripps.
