SUPPORTING EACH OTHER, OUR CHILDREN AND OUR SCHOOL
The Friends of Jarrow Cross is a group (run by volunteer parents) for parents, grandparents, carers and anyone else with an interest in meeting new people, making friends, sharing ideas and helping to support each other and the work of the school in a friendly, informal atmosphere.
We are run separately from school, have our own committee, constitution and bank account. We are not a PTA, however, we work closely with Mrs McBeth (Headteacher) and staff to ensure that we are supporting our parents, children and our school effectively. We have been running for nine years and whilst we are a small group, we are achieving big things.
Our Annual General Meeting is held each October and is a great way for us to celebrate our achievements. We hope you'll join us.
We have our own Facebook group called "Friends of Jarrow Cross Parent Group", we suggest you join as you can ask questions, help each other and share information, events and ideas. We will also be helping to support our parents who have their own businesses, so please get in touch if you would like more information.
We hold regular fundraising events where we sell refreshments, donate cakes, toys, books, lucky dips, bric-a-brac, good quality outgrown uniform and so much more. Money raised goes towards purchasing items for our children to enjoy and to the running of our group. By the end of this school year 2020/21 we will have donated £1050 worth of items to school WOW!
Our monthly newsletters detail all of our events/information and are brought home by our children. Copies are put on the new school website, on our Facebook group and sent to parents via Dojo.
We would love you to join us at any of our fun events.
