The Friends of Mosaic is the Parent, Teacher and wider Community Association of Mosaic Jewish Primary School. It brings together the school and the wider community, to support our school and includes parents and carers, staff, local residents, and other interested parties.
Friends of Mosaic Jewish Primary School, aims to enable children to:
1. Be Inspired
2. Develop Self Respect
3. Achieve excellence
To help the School realise these aims we will give support to each of the key partners; the teachers and the wider school, the parents and the children. We do this through:
Support for the school:
Fundraising – for facilities and equipment that are not funded by the main school budget.
Community Engagement – organising social activities that bring members of the school and community together.
Support to curriculum activities.
Encouraging and facilitating parent involvement:
Improving communication – for example, through newsletters and website updates.
Building networks between the school, parents and community – by involving members in activities, keeping everyone updated in a formal way through annually produced documents and informally through class representatives and email updates.
Organising and co-ordinating volunteer time and efforts.
Working closely with the teachers, we co-ordinate and fund activities for the children which:
Focus on what children need to be successful.
Enhance their experience of being part of the school ‘family’.
Facilitate opportunities for them to have fun and be happy.
Help them achieve physical fitness and general wellbeing.
Friends of Mosaic is led by parents and representatives from across the local and wider community. Every current Mosaic parent or carer and the member of staff are automatically members of the Friends group. Our elected committee and team of parent representatives (current parents representing the school year groups) meet monthly and we encourage all interested parties to come along to these meetings.
You don’t have to join the committee to be part of Friends of Mosaic. We would like all parent and many members of our community to become involved in some way and feel an integral part of our school. There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer, submit ideas. We welcome your contributions.
If you are interested in finding out more or would be happy to help in anyway you can, please don’t hesitate to contact us at: friendsofMJPS@mjps.org.uk
