What do we do?

The FOYGS support the school primarily by fundraising to provide items that will improve the environment and facilities that are not covered by statutory funds. 

Over the past 5 years we have raised an amazing £21,350.  This provides the regular items and events enjoyed by the children;

  • Teddy bears picnic for Reception starters
  • Easter egg hunts, Christmas crackers & books
  • Y6 Leaving presents/party
  • Mothers/Fathers day & Christmas shops for the children to buy wrapped presents
  • Summer family fun night, and discos

As well as paying for or contributing to larger projects;

  • The library
  • New garden & shed
  • Play area – including flooring

This Year’s Target & Progress



We have 2 key aims for 2018/19;

PHSE Learning resources

Required for September which will provide lesson plans for teachers, music, & online items

To create an outdoor learning space for a Forest School

This would need an area of the school field to be portioned off, and outdoor classroom, training and resources to be paid for.
