Friends Of Selborne School

Our PTA takes the form of FOSS; The Friends of Selborne School. We organise fundraising events such as Quiz Night, Christmas events, film nights, discos and the hugely popular FOSStival music festival. These fun events and allow families to meet and socialise whilst making the most of what it is to be part of a small community-based village school.

The funds are used to fulfil needs that our school has that go beyond its own budget, as well as pay for some very nice-to-have add-ons to the school curriculum to complement our children’s education.

Fundraising and Donations

Over the last year FOSS has spent £10,033.50 on a variety of activities and resources including:  

Improvement works to the playground tarmac; new benches for the school hall; phonics sets; playground equipment; refurbishing the “dragon” on the school field; transport for school trips; outdoor learning resources.

We also have a long term goal of fundraising to replace the wooden school playground equipment.

All parents are automatically members of FOSS and we encourage everyone to get involved in some way; perhaps you have the skillset to design a label for our new apple juice, are willing to supervise a film night or spend an hour or two tidying the school grounds? All offers of help will be gratefully received!

Each class has a FOSS rep and we meet once a half term to plan events – meeting dates are published in the school newsletter.
