Co-Op Funding - Arts Project
FOS is currently a Co-Op charity of choice. We are specifically raising money for an arts project and festival for our school and local community. This will involve music, drama and art specialists visiting the school to really enthuse the children about the Arts in addition to purchasing much needed resources. This project will also integrate the local community with a focus on mental health and the wellbeing of our school and local community.
At the half way point we have already raised £672.15 with is great.
How it works
If you are already a Co-op member then each time you shop and buy selected Co-op branded products and services, a percentage of the cost is given to a charity.
As a Co-op member you can select which charity you want to support. We therefore hope that you will choose FOS!
What is Friends of School?
Friends of School (FOS) is a registered charity comprising of volunteers who work together to raise funds by organising fun events for the children and the community. The funds are used for essential and additional school resources which directly benefit our children. The more support we get from parents, carers and families the more positive the impact we can make for our school.
Would you like to join or support FOS?
We’d be delighted to welcome new members to FOS, so don’t be shy! Approach your class rep for a chat to understand more about what and how we do things. You’re bound to have a skill or talent that could benefit FOS and our fundraising activities. It is really rewarding and a terrific opportunity to get to know other parents and that little bit more about the school too!

FOS Class Representatives
The aim of the class reps is to:
1. Be a link with a Specific Class Parent / Carer Body & with Class Teacher, Class & Class
2. Bring feedback, Class Requirements & Fundraising Proposals to Committee;
3. Communicate & Promote FOS Events to the class; and
4. Recruit helpers to FOS events.
We are really excited about this new role and hope to engage the interest of a wider group of children, parents/carers and the community.
This will help direct FOS funds to be spent where it is most needed.
