Friends of Junior School is a group of Junior School parents working together to facilitate opportunities for social and community interaction beyond the classroom. The aim of the group is ‘friend raising’ rather than fundraising. The parent group runs some self-funded activities such as sausage sizzles and parent functions but the focus is mainly on welcoming new faces and families into the Junior School. Meetings are informal and take place once a month in the Junior School staffroom. Discussions are based around Junior School events and parent run activities that promote inclusiveness.
