How I can join the Year Group Chat
There's a class WhatsApp group for the parents of the each class.
To join your group, just email us with you child's name and year group and the Year Group Rep will be in contact to help you join the group.
Alternatively, just find your Year Group Rep at the school gate and they can add you. If you don't know who your Year Group Rep is, you can find out here.
Please note, Friends of Beaumont don't run these groups, but Year Group Rep can help you join them.
How can I help out
Friends of Beaumont is run on volunteers and the more people that offer their time, the greater the spread of the workload. Volunteering doesn't have to be a chore. There are lots of ways to help out and they can fit in with the time you have available, for example you could:
Run a stall at the summer fair
Have an idea on how we could do something better
Help wash and sort the Pre-loved Uniform
Help to get sponsorship
Become a year group rep
Join the committee
Our class reps play a vital role, providing a link between the parents in their year groups and the Committee. The support from class reps is vital when it comes to organising our main events, from selling tickets to organising rotas of help. We really could not manage without them! Each class rep helps to set up a WhatsApp group, for parents to communicate via.
We need one or two class reps for each new school intake, so if you would like to get involved in this role, we would love to hear from you.
We hold an AGM in the autumn term, where everybody is invited to hear what we have been doing and our plans for the coming year, what funds we have raised and how the money is being spent. It is also when we elect our new committee members and class reps. You are all invited to attend the AGM, which we will be announced on in our news & events section
Why should I get involved?
Studies show that there is a direct link between parental involvement and how well children do at school. Helping can be fun and fit in around your other commitments.
There are lots of other ways to get involved, and we welcome any help from parents, carers and friends and have a growing number of volunteers who commit some time to helping the association. Every little helps, so just one hour of help in sorting books, washing pre-loved uniform or assisting at an event (for example) would be invaluable. Suggestions for new fundraising initiatives and activities are always welcome too.
