What is Rockmount Friends and Community (RFC)?

Rockmount Friends and Community (RFC) is a group of parents/carers and staff who work as part of a strong and vibrant school community to bring people together. Every parent or carer with a child at Rockmount is automatically a member.

 

Our aims

To encourage parent/carer participation in the life of Rockmount Primary School, and increase collaboration between teachers and parents/carers and children to strengthen the school community.

 

Objectives

  • To raise funds to help the school provide extra resources for the pupils
  • To run social events for parents/carers, teachers, and children, to meet and get to know each other

 

What do we do?

We organise events to raise funds and help parents and carers, teachers, and children to get to know each other.

We fund raise through events such as our summer and winter fairs, the Rockmount Primary School calendar, regular cake sales and book sales. We run free events such as the running club and we also support local charities such as MIND with our clothes and textile collection. We also collect food for the West Norwood food bank.

 

How we spend our money

The money we raise helps the school with extra school resources. Recently, we’ve funded:

 

  • new school gates (Rockmount road entrance)
  • playground markings
  • bulbs for daffodil planting
  • materials for arts week
  • goodbye gifts for Year 6

 

How you can help

We usually meet on the first Friday of every month in the After School Club room (at the Rockmount Road end of the school) at 9.00am.

 

If you have any ideas about new fund raising events, please let us know. 

 

Come and join us for good coffee and delicious biscuits, and find out how you can get involved. You can also send an email to us at rockmountpta@hotmail.com

 

Would you like to be more involved with Rockmount Friends and Community?

Every parent or carer in the Rockmount community is a member of RFC. To help things run smoothly there is an informal committee with some defined roles. Each year these roles come up for election, everyone is welcome. Being an RFC committee member is a good way to get to know more about the school and the people who make it such a great place for our children to be. Most of the roles require only a small time commitment and working together we can achieve a lot!

 

 

What are our next projects?

We are planning fundraising activities for two wooden pods for our school playground. They will be used as reading, science and craft areas and will be available during break time. This will give an alternative to children who want a quieter time during this period. The school will also use the pods as learning spaces during the school day. These pods will be an amazing addition to our school facilities. 

 

We are also in the process of becoming a charity. We hope to obtain charitable status by the end of May. If you have any experience as a trustee or applying for grants, please let us know.
