Who are the Friends of John Clifford?


We are a group of John Clifford parents , carers and staff who get together once a month. The two purposes of our group are:


1) to organise fundraising events to raise money for equipment and activities which will enrich the school experience for all John Clifford children from nursery through to Year 6


2) to encourage a sense of community within the school by organising events where families can come together and get to know each other



Meeting dates for 2019:


Monday 14th January

Monday 4th February

Monday 4th March

Monday 1st April

Monday 13th May
Monday 3rd June


All meetings take place at 6:30 pm in the school Community Room with tea and cake provided.  We'd love to see you there!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I become a member of Friends?
As a parent of a pupil who attends John Clifford you are automatically a member.  If you'd like to get more involved at any level, then either come along to one of our regular meetings, or sign up to our email newsletter.

How are funds raised?
We hold a number of events throughout the year including school discos, a fireworks event, a school fair and a family fundraising evening.

How can I become involved with Friends?
Everyone is welcome to come along to any of the Friends meetings. These are usually held at least once every half term usually in the early evening. They are currently held at school, in the staff room. If childcare is a problem you can bring your children along and they will be able to play in the hall while the meeting takes place. There is no commitment to coming to every meeting.

I do not want to come to the meetings but would still like to help. Is there anything else I can do to become involved?
It's really easy.  Just send us an email and join our register of helpers to receive our regular email updates.

What is the register of helpers?
We know that it can be tricky to commit to helping out on a regular basis.  But by keeping in touch through our newsletters, you can keep in touch and offer to help without having to commit to meetings.

What kind of help could I give?
We need a wide range of help. There is usually something to suit everybody but the main areas are: -
Planning, advertising and organising events (usually discussed at Friends meetings)
Setting up events – setting up stalls, shopping for refreshments, prizes etc
Running events – running a stall, serving refreshments
Clearing away after events

How will I be able to help as I work during the day?
We need a range of helpers who are available at different times of the day either before school, during the school day, immediately after school, or in the evenings. It is a great way for those parents who aren’t available to help during the day to become involved in your child’s school.

What if I register as a helper and find I have other commitments when I am asked to help at an event?
Friends would contact volunteers in advance of any event to make sure they were available and willing to help. We understand that everyone has other commitments.

How many times would I be asked to help?
The more helpers on the register, the fewer occasions each volunteer will be asked to help!

How do I keep up to date with Friends meetings and events?
Our events will be included in school newsletters, on our facebook page and we have our own section on the school website here!
