Fairfield Parents Network

The Fairfield Parent Network (FPN) - who we are and what we do

The Fairfield Parent Network (FPN) is a group of parents who support the school when they put on events. It’s a great opportunity to get involved with the school, meet other parents and raise some money in the process.

If the last school year had been “normal”, this is what we would have done.  2019/20 school year

  • Winter Gala (mid-Dec).  An evening of music and entertainment and Christmas shopping opportunities.  The FPN provided food and drinks for sale. 
  • Spring performance (March).  The FPN supported the school production of Alladdin by providing Middle Eastern inspired refreshments across 3 evening performances.
  • Community Iftar (late April).  All food and drinks were to be provided by local Muslim businesses for Fairfield’s first community Iftar.  The FPN was going to support this event with helping to set up and clear away. (Cancelled)
  • Summer Gala (July).  This wonderful end of year event show cases the performance talents across the school.  The FPN provides drinks, cakes and a BBQ as well as a second hand uniform sale. (Cancelled)

2020 - 2021 school year:

We are not sure which school events will run this year and what our involvement might be but we want to be ready to help.  Below is more info on how you can get involved.

There are several ways to get involved with the FPN:

  • Donate: Cakes, drinks, food and secondhand uniform etc, for the FPN to sell at events.  
  • Help to sell: Cakes, drinks, food and secondhand uniform etc, at school events
  • Join the core group:  To organise the cakes, drinks, food and secondhand uniform etc, to sell at school events.

Why  join the FPN?:

We asked our current members why they joined the FPN….here is what they said:

“It’s a good laugh”

“You lose touch with school a bit when your kids go to Secondary school.  Joining the FPN helped me to feel part of a school community again.”

“I get to go to school events even when my kids aren’t going because the FPN needs me, it’s good!”

“It’s nice to feel you’re helping the school.”

“I get to meet other parents with children in different year groups so it helps me to understand how things work.”

“When the parent network communicates with the school I feel that our opinions are listened to and valued.”
