Harestock School welcomes the support and involvement of parents. We hold a series of events during the year such as coffee mornings, open afternoons, class assemblies and parent/teacher interviews when we invite parents to school to meet their child’s class teacher. There are also several other occasions, concerts, the nativity and social events during the year. We welcome the support many parents give by coming into school to work in the classroom, and when appropriate to accompany classes on visits to places of interest.We are an open friendly school. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher or the Headteacher if you need information or have any concerns.
Friends of the School (F.o.S.)
The FoS give invaluable help to the school by fund raising and buying important equipment and materials but also by arranging a range of social events throughout the year including school discos, the annual summer fete and Christmas fayre. Every parent is automatically a member of the FoS and new parents are most welcome to attend meetings.
To get involved please contact Mr Duncan Bray (Chairperson) c/o Harestock Primary School (01962) 881026
