Who We Are

 FOSS logo

Friends of Shelley School (FOSS) is the school's PTA (Parent Teacher Association)

We are a registered charity who organise a variety of events for the children and/or parents to enjoy and in doing so raise valuable funds for the school.  All funds raised go directly back to the school and its pupils.  FOSS is run by a friendly group of parents on a voluntary basis and assisted by additional volunteers, perhaps family members, staff or pupils, at bigger events.  The current committee stands as;

Elaine Levitton (Chair)

Candice Ferrando (Treasurer)

Jen Hibberd (Secretary)

Shilo Beare

Jody Morris-Jones

Lee Crabtree

Helen Tucker

The committee meets once a month to discuss ideas for new fundraising and to plan diarised events. 

Annual events held are:

Sponsored walk with refreshments

Christmas Bazaar

Summer fete

Sponsored read

There are also other events during the year such as:

School discos

Film nights

A Christmas visit from Santa

Year 6 leaving outing and gift

Summer ice-cream sales

Over the years the money raised has gone on to finance items for the school, for example:

New interactive whiteboards in all classrooms

Replacement of sports equipment

New books

Leadership and achievement badges

Our main fundraising for 2019 will be the purchase of 30 new iPads for use in a variety of class exercise and learning practices.
