Friends of Nettlebed School (FONS)

Welcome to the Friends of Nettlebed School (charity no. 1091177)

FONS is responsible for organising a range of fun fundraising and social events throughout the school year.  We are committed to being an inclusive body that delivers our vision:

“to work together to promote a strong sense of school community while simultaneously raising funds which will be used to enhance every child’s experience at Nettlebed School”.

Although all parents are part of FONS, it is run by a small, committed group of parent volunteers who always welcome the support and involvement of others to deliver our goals.  We work hard to bring together the school, families and staff to promote a real sense of school community, fun and achievement. 

The money raised by FONS contributes to enriching the school curriculum with Forest School and specialist music lessons as well as providing transport to local sports matches. FONS also raise money for specific projects and have previously contributed heavily to installing the all-weather pitch, interactive white boards and recently raised over £20,000 for a playground overhaul!

Recent events we have held include Halloween discos, quiz nights, colour runs, Easter scarecrow trails, a Christmas present room, the Stinger run, the Winter Fete and the Summer Fete. We are now developing plans for a summer festival! FONS takes pride in our school and so each term we also arrange a community day during which families come together to paint, fix and clear up in a fun and cost-effective way. 

If you have any questions about FONS, please e-mail us at .  You can also follow us on Facebook.

We hope to see you at future events!
