 "Friends of Horizon"



Get involved at school:


There is overwhelming evidence that parent participation in education helps our children do better in school and here at Horizon we aim to involve as many parents as possible. There are so many ways you can get involved with the school, whatever your circumstances, interests or skill-set. So if you don't think Friends of Horizon is for you (we still think you should give it a go!) there are plenty of other ways you can get involved!


Even if you can't take part in regular activities at school because of work commitments, you can still make a valuable contribution by sharing your ideas and making things at home! we welcome any younger children along in school so please don't let that put you off!


We have lost the term PTA as we much prefer 'Friends of Horizon' this means that there is no formality, no one leader but a team that works together to support the school!



Here are just some of the ways you can be practically involved: at events:


  • Run a stall at fares, events and charities.
  • Help set up or tidy up is a great help!
  • Share ideas and thoughts.
  • Source Raffle Prizes
  • Creative? help us in school or at home by making something?
  • Like to bake- we need european themed cakes from around the world or traditional sweet dishes from different countries within Europe. 
  • Spread the word to other parents about important dates and events.
  • Volunteer your time when and where you can.
  • Donating good quality toys, games and books for our pocket money stall.
  • Source prizes for games e.g. sweets on own clothes days. 


Successes so far:


  • McMillian Coffee Morning October 2015
