Friends of the School (FOSS)

We have an active Friends of the School (FOSS) organisation which organises various events and in recent years have raised over £40,000. This is a long-standing voluntary group which is made up of parents, grandparents and carers of children who attend the school.  We are grateful for their support and assistance and trust that this interest and generosity will continue in the future. All parents/carers are invited to attend the meetings and become actively involved. This body is a welcome and vital part of our school life without which the children would not receive as many varied opportunities as they do.

In recent years their fundraising has paid for various equipment and as well as providing events and gifts for our children. Some examples include:

  • KS1 and KS2 outdoor play equipment and tower
  • KS2 outdoor exercise equipment
  • Outdoor music equipment
  • Outdoor classroom
  • Year 6 leaver’s hoodies
  • Christmas parties and gifts
  • Early years resources

In order to raise funds FOSS arranges various events throughout the year. We are grateful for their hard work in organising all of these events and for the support given by our school community and local community for supporting them so well.

Events include:

  • Christmas fair
  • Yard sale
  • Summer fete
  • Quiz/Bingo and film nights
  • School disco’s
  • Christmas, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day shops
  • Cake sales
  • Non-uniform days
  • Raffles

The Friends of the school also operate a local shop which sells a wide variety of used goods, including school uniform at very reasonable prices. The shop is open every Wednesday 9am-12pm, during term-time.

FOSS has two separate Facebook pages. The main FOSS page is for news about upcoming events and information, and there is also a separate FOSS shop page where items from the shop are sometimes advertised for the benefit of those who cannot make it to the shop in person.  If you are a Facebook user, please follow FOSS so that you don’t miss out on anything.

If you are interested in finding out more about how you can help please contact FOSS at or via the FOSS Facebook page.
