Friends Of Normanton Junior School
Welcome to all the “Friends of Normanton Junior Academy”
Friends Normanton Junior Academy is our Parent, Teacher and Friends Association. To be involved, you don’t need to be a parent of a child in our school; you could be an aunty, uncle or grandparent. We all have one objective and that is to raise funds to help support the school through events and activities which will help to make a difference to every child. We would love to hear from you with your suggestions of what you feel would improve the school experience for our children, or if you want to help out!
Our e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively please put your suggestions or ideas in writing, mark it for the attention of “The Friends of Normanton Academy” and leave it at the school office.
