Class Reps help to build a sense of community amongst the parents in their class and are an important link between parents and the 'Friends of Russell School organisation'.

Responsibilities of the Class Reps include:

Supporting fundraising:

  • Organising class stalls for the Christmas and summer fairs.
  • Coordinating class contributions to other FoRS events.
  • Encouraging class members to attend and donate to other fundraising and social events, eg quiz nights, fireworks, FoRS Ball.


Supporting the class social network:

  • Welcoming new families into the school and introducing them to other parents in the class.
  • Arranging opportunities for parents to socialise together throughout the year.


Liaising with the class teacher:

  • Maintaining contact with the class teacher to help organise materials for projects, costumes etc.
  • Collecting donations for gifts.


The Class Rep’s role does not extend to resolving academic issues or concerns about individual children.  If you have a question or problem related to teaching and learning or your child’s schooling, please contact your child's class teacher or the Headteacher.
