Friends of Norton School (FoNS)

September 2018



Hope the new school year has started well for everybody. A special welcome to all new Reception parents!


For those unfamiliar with FoNS, we are an informal group of parents who are focused on raising money to enhance the school experience for all the children of Norton School, whether that be through additional equipment, activities or resources that may not otherwise be possible to provide within the school budget.


Some of the key highlights recently are:


  • Money towards a Little Learners Pod. Although the Pod has now become a permanent building (Fantastic!) the money donated was instrumental in the School’s successful bid for the new Little Learners Facility as it showed the school community was supporting the proposal. This money is now being used towards the building of the facility.


  • New laptops for the school


  • Additional Maths equipment


We are working with School to understand how we can best support them this year and would welcome ideas from parents as to what you care about and would like to see FoNS support too.


Our AGM was held on the 24th September and we would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the Committee Members:

Please do not hesitate to contact any of the above if you have any questions, ideas, or would like to get involved in whatever capacity you can offer.


Our next meeting is on Monday 15th October where we will be discussing events for this term and all things Christmas! – Please do come along if you are free. We are always really pleased to see new faces.
