St John Fisher Catholic School Parents Association (SJFA)
St John Fisher has a very active Parent Association that is instrumental in raising funds for additional school resources. This is an informal group made up of parents who want to make a difference. You don’t need to come to all the meetings, but let us know if you are willing to help at events with some of the tasks e.g. running stalls, advertising, obtaining raffle prizes, etc.
Examples of school resources that we have raised funds for are the school minibus; Outdoor Classroom; Duke Edinburgh Scheme; Fitness Suite; contribution to the Hardship Fund; Music Equipment; Prize-giving Evening; New Sound and Lighting System for the Main School Hall; Sports Equipment and Kit; Sewing machines for the Textile Department; Contribution to Wi-Fi units; Computer Software
For all updates on fund raising events, please see below.
PDF file downloads of minutes of meetings are available for information.

Dennis Richards Ringers Team scoop SJF PTA Quiz - shock victory for Fisher's teachers in a nail biting 1 point victory. Was the Pope's Twitter address the crucial question? A valiant 3rd place for Liz Crichton's Team, who unselfishly gave credit to the rest of her team.
Easyfundraising – St John Fisher Association (SJFA) Please see below details about an easy way to help raise funds for St John Fisher:
How it works
easyfundraising.org.uk helps charities, schools, sports clubs, community groups, and other good causes to raise money when their supporters shop online. So far we've raised over £3 million for causes throughout the UK.
It works in a similar way to many other loyalty shopping sites, but instead of earning points when you shop, you raise a donation for your cause instead. It's as simple as that!
You can shop with over 2,000 well known stores and each will donate up to 15% of what you spend. For example, John Lewis will donate 1%, Amazon 2.5%, The Body Shop 6%, some insurance retailers will even donate up to £30 simply for taking out a policy with them.
It doesn't cost you a penny more
The great thing is it won't cost you any more, plus we've got lots of voucher codes and special discounts so you can actually save money while you help your good cause. There is no cost for the good cause either – our service is totally free.
How to generate donations
It's very simple - once you've registered with us, when you shop with one of our retailers, our system makes a note of your purchase, collects the donation from the retailer and passes it to your chosen good cause. That's it! No hassle for you, we do all the hard work while you shop as your normally would.
It's really easy to get started (we don't call it easyfundraising for nothing!)
