Friends of Netherton School (FONS)
We aim to build a nurture room, a home away from home environment that will have a positive impact on the mental health and wellbeing of the children and families of Netherton.

About this cause
For more than two decades, Friends of Netherton School (FONS/PTA) have provided valuable support to staff, parents and, most importantly, its pupils, in a wide variety of initiatives. School events that directly impact the children and larger events that bring the community together are the backbone of the charity’s ethos. This includes traditional fairs and coffee mornings to hiking challenges and tasting evenings.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Our nurture room will initially provide a quiet, comfortable, safe space for those children who may require a softer reintroduction to school and society as a whole. Workshops will encourage families to re-establish familial bonds instead of those of the teacher and pupil, and create links between other families outside of their own bubble.
