Parents help out in a wide variety of ways – in the library, in the classroom and with craft and sporting activities.
All the parents of pupils in the school are automatically members of the Junior School Association (JSA). The committee organises a number of fund raising and social events throughout the year and relies upon the active involvement of parents and friends to support them.
The JSA actively supports the school through its fundraising efforts. It raises money for all those extras that help to enhance the lives of the pupils in the school but which, unfortunately, are outside the normal budget.
The children love their parents being involved with the school life and its a great opportunity to make new friends and become integrated with Holmer Green Junior School.
The financial help given by the JSA cannot be understated. All pupils benefit from the many initiatives in school, which are possible because of the support offered. The JSA also runs a school Lottery, the profits from which are put towards the cost of school resources. Please click on the links below to find out more.
We are delighted when parents volunteer their time to assist within the school in any capacity, however we recognise that not everyone is available to help during the school day due to work and childcare commitments. Below are further ways that you are able to help if this is the case;

Name the Elf
There is a very large Elf now in school ! The children will be able to try and guess his name in the hope of winning him. The draw will be made towards the end of term. For 50p each, children can have a go at choosing a name from a selected list. Please put 50p in your child’s bag ready for them to take part and hopefully the Elf will get to join your family!
