What does the money given to the school by the FOHFS pay for?

 

Music Provision (£2000)

Thanks to the hard work of the FOHFS and the support they receive from you, we are able to fund music lessons for every year 3, 4 and 5 pupil throughout the year, every year.  Year 3 begin with learning the xylophone.  Year 4 play the African drums and year 5 the keyboards. Mrs. Ruddock, from the Essex Music Hub comes in every Friday morning to teach the classes.  The children hold a music recital towards the end of the summer term for parents.

 

Forest School Provision (£2500+)

FOHFS give funds towards the provision of Forest School.  It has also over the past couple of years helped to fund resources for it eg: Small shed for Forest school to keep resources in.  Resources for particular Forest School activities.

Mrs. Lonergan, who undertook the level 3 Forest School training last academic year, leads provision throughout the school.  The school also give some budget towards it, and we fundraise internally too.  With these funds we buy in extra days with Mrs. Lonergan to lead Forest School sessions for the children.

 

Why concentrate FOHFS funds to music and Forest School provision?

At HFS we want our children to experience a broad curriculum that supports their academic, personal, social and emotional growth. In school we fund from the delegated budget 'Mighty Oaks' public speaking programme for years 2 to 6, and put money towards music and sports provision.  We also have a good programme of art. 

 

It is very important for the children to have early experiences of these cultural elements.  We hope that they will be inspired to continue them in the secondary school and personal lives.  As they reach the age of 18 they will hopefully have a full and varied personal statement that they can write to support their job, apprenticeship, college or university applications.  That might sound a long way off, but if we introduce the children to such activities early and they develop an appreciation it will hopefully support them.  Also we love these activities at HFS.  When we hear the feedback from the children we know that it is supporting their development and also mental health.
