What is Friends of North Crawley School (FONS)

The Friends of North Crawley School (FONS) is an association of parents and teachers working together to raise funds for the school and to provide support at various events.  As a parent or carer of children at North Crawley School you are automatically members of the Friends of North Crawley School (FONS) team.

What do we do?

Throughout the school year, the Friends of North Crawley School (FONS) subsidises a variety of trips by paying for transport and entry fees; thus meaning the contribution from parents is minimal.  Previous trips have been to Warwick Castle; Hollington Wood and Salcey Forest; to the supermarket giant Tesco to learn about the ‘Food to Fork’ food journey; a farm visit to watch the lambing and another to the Wolverton Museum.

Holds social events

Friends of North Crawley School (FONS) holds social events such as the Summer Fete and Christmas Fayre.  These events not only raise money for North Crawley School but also provide popular events for the village as a community.

Our Christmas fundraising efforts included a special raffle of a wheel-barrow full of booze, the Christmas Fayre event itself and a draw of festive products such as a fresh turkey, a Christmas tree and floral wreath as well as vouchers for Clarks and Boden.  There was the chance to win a day at Woburn Safari Park and a day pass to go to Gullivers’ World.  There were also vouchers for meals out and for beauty treatments; even for a MOT.  The grand fundraising total was a whopping £1,156.50.

How can you help?

The Friends of North Crawley School (FONS) are always in need of new active members in order to continue the good work we do. 

Ideally, we would like more people to come to the meetings and support our fundraising efforts – whether that is by playing an active role in the team, coming up with new ideas or helping at the events we hold. You can give as little or as much time as suits you.  We need your expertise and enthusiasm.

Not all members are needed to help at every event but of course "many hands make light work".  The fewer members we have, the fewer events we can put on, so less money raised for the school.

Helping out by being an active member of the Friends of North Crawley School (FONS) can be good fun and is very rewarding as you will actively be supporting your child's learning and making lots of new friends.  Whatever commitment you give will be appreciated and will make a difference.

Upcoming Events

We hope to repeat the hugely enjoyable Halloween Party for the children at the end of October.  If there are enough active members, we can do it!  So please come to the meeting or let us know if you can help.

And finally...

The Friends of North Crawley School (FONS) would not be able to do the work they do without the support of all the parents, teachers, friends, grandparents who come to the events and help make them such a success. Many thanks go to all those who help raise money for our children's school. Your continued support is much appreciated and we look forward to seeing you all at our events in the future.
