The forum is a group of volunteers who meet every Friday morning to plan and organise various events throughout school and the local community. We meet at the St John's Centre at 10am. Our aim is to raise funds to help benefit all children and their families. New forum members are always welcome. Please see Cath Madden (07908 323720) if you are interested in joining or come along to our meetings if you wish to help. Even if you only have an hour to spare occasionally, we would still welcome your support (you don't have to attend meetings every week).


Another aspect of the forum is to welcome volunteers within school who wish to help with listening to children read, helping in the classroom, assisting with art and craft sessions, helping on trips, providing refreshments, baking cakes, gardening or offering a hand with any one of the numerous events that are held throughout the year.
