Whilst your child is making new friends at school, the Friends of Amesbury (FOA) offers an opportunity for you to do the same!

The purpose of the FOA is to build community. The group is responsible for welcoming and supporting new families, and for fostering a sense of community in the school principally by holding social events throughout the year.  Whatever we do, we do voluntarily and not for gain – we are not a fundraising group! The committee is made up of two representatives from each year group (known as Class Reps) and they meet every half term. Reps are in their role for an academic year, calendar year and the Chair rotates every two years. All Amesbury parents are automatically offered the opportunity to connect with the FOA; your Class Rep will keep you up-to-date with any events and information about the FOA throughout the year.


* School will provide you with the contact details for your Class Reps. Please reach out to them directly. They can then welcome you and your child to the school and will try to arrange for you to meet some of the other children and parents in the year group. Your Class Reps will also invite you to join the year group WhatsApp or email groups.

* Your Rep will be a great source of informal know-how about the school – particularly useful during the Summer Holidays when the school is closed!


* Your Class Reps guide you through your first year with reminders and information where necessary, such as uniform requirements for particular events.

* Each term, your Class Reps will organise a coffee morning and often an evening social event for your year group, so that you begin to get to know everyone.

* The school will hold a coffee morning at school after drop-off, once a term for each year group. Members of the Common Room will attend, to allow parents to communicate with the team in an informal setting.


* You can volunteer to be a Class Rep, get involved in social events or to help in another way – it’s a great way to meet new people and support the school.

* You can come along to our whole school social events – sometimes with your child and sometimes without.

* You can advertise to the parent body in our regular Amesbury Ads – you can sell musical instruments, bikes etc. that you no longer need, and for marketing your own business.
