Our very valuable Parent-Teacher Association at Sir Henry Fermor is called Friends of Fermor School (FoFS).
They provide exciting activities for the children and raise all-important funds to enable the children to access additional resources, extra curricular activities and embark on adventurous projects; all to enhance the children's learning experience at SHF.
Events and activities include - Summer and Christmas Fairs, Disco’s, Easter Hunt & Chocolate Tombola, Ice Lolly Fridays, Mother’s and Father’s Day Gifts, Pancake Flip and Bag2School Recycling. For up-to-date information regarding our upcoming events or any information regarding FoFS, please see our Facebook page and our fortnightly newsletter.
Fundraising - For the year September 2018 - August 2019 we have raised an amazing £19,633 which has been spent on many different projects. To see a comprehensive list of how this money has been raised and what it has been spent on, please see below. For this year 2019/2020 we are fundraising to get the games repainted on the playground and providing every class with a tablet.
Joining the Committee – Being on the Committee gives you a strong connection to the school; making decisions in how we allocate the funds raised from our events and providing a great way to meet other parents, make new friends and have some fun. Please don’t feel you have to sign your life away, you can do as much or as little as you want.
Be a Volunteer - It only takes a few people to plan an event, but a whole lot more to run one! Perhaps you would like to be a Volunteer and help out when you can. Examples are – manning a stall at a fair, organising raffle’s or just folding the tickets, serving drinks at the children’s disco, selling ice lollies after school, wrapping gifts or putting up posters.
Supporting Events - Life can be hectic and if volunteering feels a step too far, you can still make an invaluable contribution simply by attending events with friends and family and spending your pennies or by donating items as needed.

We look forward to welcoming you!
