Support the School

There are many ways in which you can support John Ball.

As a parent or a carer, some of the best ways in which you can support the School are to ensure that you child comes to school every day, is on time and has brought all the right things with them (PE kit etc.).

John Ball recognises the vital role parents play in their child’s education and we hope that parents, pupils and teachers will work in partnership to promote positive learning within and outwith the school – ask you child about their learning, check out their year pages to see what they are currently doing in class and support them with their learning at home.

If you have the time, you may also wish to consider volunteering to help in the School – you can find more information about volunteering here.

Fundraising and Donations

We are always looking for extra resources to help us enhance the School’s equipment and resources. There are a range of ways in which you can help us with this.

Friends of John Ball

The Friends of John Ball regularly organise school events and fundraising activities.  They are always looking for volunteers to help them. Further information about how you can get involved can be found here

Donations

Some parents choose to donate money direct to the School.  We welcome these donations, large and small!  If you would like to donate in this way, please make cheques payable to John Ball Primary School and hand it to reception.  We will of course respect your wishes as to whether you would like your donation publicly acknowledged or not.

We have also had donations from parents of equipment (for example, where a parent’s business was disposing of relatively new computers).  If you think you have equipment that might be of use to the school, please contact Mrs Noakes to discuss it.
