Friends of the School/ Class Reps
Friends of the School
The Friends of Bushey Heath Primary School is a parent/carer-run organisation and registered charity. We exist to raise money for our school to buy extras that make the school life for our children and their teachers more fun, comfortable and help create a richer environment for all.
Being part of the Friends Committee is fun, sociable and a great way to use your skills for a very worthwhile cause.
The types of activities we do include fun social events, traditional family events and competitions. We have organised craft fairs, indulgence evenings, bingo nights, fancy dress, discos, Easter art challenges, design competitions, fashion shows, Christmas Fairs, summer fetes etc.
We look forward to seeing you at all our forthcoming events. If you are interested in taking part in any of them or have any wonderful ideas, please contact any of the committee.
The major contributions the Friends of the School have made include a nature garden and large playground structures for the infant and junior playgrounds. Smaller purchases include ICT equipment and items for the classrooms such as musical instruments, play equipment, books and whiteboards.
We recently raised funds to purchase a canopy that enables all-year round play for children in the Foundation Stage and new benches for the Junior playground.

Each class in the school has one or two Class Reps who volunteer their time to represent and support the class in various ways.
They help build a sense of community among parents/carers and provide an additional link into the school for parents/carers as the Class Reps meet regularly with the Head at least once a term.
The Class Reps will ensure the parent/carer class community has a WhatsApp group, will organise social events for the class and collections for Teachers, as well as meetings with the Head to represent class/individual viewpoints/concerns and offer both positive and constructive feedback. They do not replace your direct link into the school, via the Teacher, but they are a great first point of call for any general queries.
Class Reps volunteer for the role on a yearly basis and this normally occurs in June. If you are interested in doing the role or supporting your Class Rep in anyway or just want to know more then please do let them know. For more information on the responsibilities, please speak to your Class Rep.
