What is Friends of the School?
We are parents who volunteer to support the school by helping to organise events and fund raising activities. FOS aims to support the school ethos ‘Living, Learning, Growing Together’ by supporting the school with much needed additional funds for extra education activities and resources. We do this by organising fun events for the whole school throughout the year and by giving a helping hand to the school wherever else we can.
Why do we need FOS?
This extra funding makes an incredible difference to the school and the development of our children. With school budgets stretched the FOS raises essential funds that subsidises such things as swimming lessons, school trips, visits from theatre groups as well as individual class resources, like reading books and new laptops. We’ve also funded a variety of school projects, like costumes for both the Christmas play and a number of summer productions. Every year-group benefits.
And it’s not just about funding. The FOS arranges several events for the children to enjoy throughout the year, like the Christmas fair and the Easter egg hunt. And not forgetting parents, our annual quiz night and new to this year…gift auction.
Can you help?
FOS cannot exist without the generosity of parents and carers, we wouldn’t be able to keep it going. We welcome new ideas and would love to welcome anyone who would like to contribute. If you are interested in joining us, please email: email@example.com
