WELCOME TO THE
'FRIENDS OF REGIS'
We are a small group of parents and carers who get together to discuss how to raise money to provide resources to enhance the children’s learning and wellbeing and provide new experiences. As well as raising funds, we also aim to enhance the sense of community within the school by providing fun events which bring together parents, staff, pupils, carers and the wider Corsham community.
Examples of recent events include Christmas Fayre with Santa's Grotto, Autumn and Christmas parties, Summer Fete, Easter Cafe and discos. We also got involved in community events, including Corsham Street Fair and marshalling the Corsham 10K race.
So far in 2018/19, we have funded new playground markings for KS1 and KS2 and allocated funding towards school trip subsidies, writing resources and a theatre visit. In 2017/18 we contributed to the improvements to the KS1 playground with matched funding from Corsham Area Board and support from the Brunel Shed. We also paid for a Christmas theatre visit, new sports kit, Autumn craft activities and Christmas parties including a visit from Father Christmas with gifts for all. We contributed to support to enhance children’s emotional and mental wellbeing, including play therapy and becoming a Thrive School. In 2016/17, our donations funded new literacy software (jointly with the Methuen Trust), play and sports equipment and golden time toys.
In January 2018, we became a registered charity which enables us to apply for more types of grant funding. If you are aware of donations or matched funding opportunities through your bank, employer, supermarket or insurance company, do let us know. Our charity registration number is 1176473.
We are always looking for more parents and carers to help out – whether you are interested in joining the Committee, helping out as and when you can with events, or supporting us with writing fundraising applications, please get in touch via the school office or by email email@example.com. Our supporters are vital to ensure we can run successful events and raise funds to enhance our children's school experience. As a very small team of busy people, we know the challenges of juggling busy jobs and families and really value whatever time people can give to support our school.
