Friends of Eaton Bank
As parents you are automatically a member of Friends of Eaton Bank… your voice counts.
Friends of Eaton Bank is a mixture of parents that work together for the benefit of Eaton Bank Academy.
Taking an active role with Friends of Eaton Bank is critical to your children’s success and here are 5 reasons why it will improve your child’s experience of school:
You’ll feel more connected
There’s no better way to know what events are being planned, have your say or make new fundraising suggestions, than by offering your help and support. You’ll get to know teachers and support staff on a more familiar basis.
You’ll be part of a great network
Every Friends of Eaton Bank event is an opportunity to meet other parents in the same situation as you. You will be part of a like-minded network of people who all share a common goal of improving the school for all our children.
Make a difference
By volunteering to help Friends of Eaton Bank, you’ll be able to use whatever skills you have for a noble cause. We strive to establish a supportive and encouraging community for the entire school.
Be a role model
By getting involved with Friends of Eaton Bank, you’ll show your children that not only are they important to you, but their education is as well. Your children will see you playing an active part in making their education more varied. Getting involved illustrates good teamwork and community spirit.
It’s totally flexible!
There are a variety of small ways you can help and be involved – from designing a poster, photocopying and distributing letters in the school, cleaning up after an event, helping out on a stall… Giving up just 30 minutes of your time to help Friends of Eaton Bank is invaluable. If everyone could spare 30 minutes a term to help, just think what we could achieve! You don’t have to attend our meetings – you can use our contact details to send in ideas for discussion.
