Each and every penny FOPS raises is ploughed back into the school community - whether it's for purchasing new equipment or putting on events for the children to enjoy.
In 2017/18 we raised a fantastic £20,650 which was spent on the following:
- The second and final instalment for the new playground equipment - £15,000
- Mathletics subscription - £3,040
- Easter egg hunt - £150
- School disco - £573
- Forest school equipment - £850
- Year 6 leavers BBQ - £400
We'll be setting our fundraising priorities for 2018/19 at our upcoming AGM from 7pm on Wednesday 17 October. Come along to the the meeting to have your say on how the money we raise should be spent.
Most of the funds we raise come from the events that we organise, but we are always very grateful to receive individual donations too - every penny really does count. You can make a one-off online donation here.
If you work for a large or independent organisation, please take just a couple of minutes to check whether they offer match funding - an easy and completely free way to raise money for our school. Last year, we increased the total Summer Fair profit by a whopping £1k through match funding, so it really is worth it!
