Friends of Hippings School
The School has an active “Friends” Association that arranges educational, social and fund-raising activities throughout the year. All parents are automatically members of the Friends and are welcome at all events. In the Autumn Term, the Annual General Meeting is held to report on the previous year’s activities and to elect officers and a committee who plan events during the year. The Friends Association is a member of the National Confederation of Parent-Teacher Associations and its constitution is based on that recommended by the NCPTA. Minutes of meetings are displayed on the notice board in the school entrance. The Friends Association does not deal with the problems of individual children or matters relating to the organisation or conduct of the school which are the responsibility of the Governors.
We are always pleased to hear from parents who are willing to offer help or special skills to the school on a voluntary basis. Parents regularly help with curriculum areas and help with supervision on school trips or offer help with transport to our school teams. If any parents feel they would like to contribute to these or other areas, please contact the Headteacher.
