At Regis Manor we have an active and enthusiastic team of parents and teachers that support the school and help provide a wider and richer experience for pupils. The Friends of Regis Manor (FoRM) is the parent/teacher association (PTA) for our school.
The objectives of the FoRM are to organise events and activities that raise funds for equipment, trips and projects in school and to organise social events for the enjoyment of the pupils, their families and the wider community.
The FoRM is run by volunteers and welcomes everyone who would like to get involved (incl. committee membership). There are many ways to help and support the FoRM; from one off smaller tasks to larger ongoing projects that can fit around your availability and suit your interest.
Event-organisation and fund raising are truly a team effort, so many responsibilities are shared across all members.
If you are interested in becoming a member or an active helper, or wish to make any suggestions for future events, please email the school firstname.lastname@example.org and they will forward your messages on.
|FoRM Role||Name||Description of Role|
The Chair oversees all PTA activities, liaises with school and governors, coordinates projects & volunteers, welcomes and involves new members. The chair works closely with the secretary and treasurer to ensure that events run effectively and to prepare the annual report and accounts.
The secretary is responsible for taking minutes during meetings to provide a record of decisions taken and actions agreed, the co-ordination of production of notices/flyers to promote PTA events and the liaison with the PTA Chair to prepare agendas.
The treasurer's role is to manage the funds that the PTA raises. The treasurer is responsible for the PTA accounting, financial reporting, signing cheques / authorising payments (with another committee member), banking monies raised.
Active members organise specific events and activities and provide general support.
What events are held?
Over the school year we hold a few different events from our annual Fireworks display to school discos and the Year 6 Prom.
The FoRM endeavor to spend the funds in ways that will benefit all children across the various areas of the school and curriculum. These are usually 'extras' that the school budget would not cover and make the children's experiences at school more fulfilling and exciting. Recently this has included subsidising the costs of coaches for school trips – making them more affordable for parents and reducing the likelihood children will miss out.
The FoRM liaise with the school about what they would like to be funded. As there are more things on the 'wish list' than funds available there is a process of prioritising and voting in order to come to a final agreement. All parents and staff have a right to hand in requests.
