Parents Association (FOSS)

Friends of Shorne School (FOSS) is the name of Shorne Church of England Primary School’s parent/teacher association.

The main objective of FOSS is to raise funds to advance the education of pupils by providing and/or assisting in the provision of facilities, equipment and experiences that extend their learning.

We are an open group, welcoming new members no matter how much time individuals can commit. You don’t have to come to every meeting or get involved with every single event. The more people we have offering a little help here and there, the wider we can spread the workload and easier it becomes.If you are a parent or member of staff at the school please take the time find us on our FOSS Facebook group page. Please just send a request or ask another parent to add you and you will be added. The page is used for reminders about all the large events as well as cake sales, requests for help and small every day questions about things like sports day, dinner menus etc.

Our two big events of the year are the Summer Fete and the Christmas Bazaar. We are trying to support the school with their technological vision for the future by funding new laptops and interactive boards for the classrooms. Other events include: Krispy Kreme donut sale; Easter Egg hunt; non-School Uniform days; sale of second hand uniform; school discos; bake sales; Picnic on the Green; children’s film night; The Mother’s and Father’s Day gift shop; a Friday tuck shop.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has supported the school, past and present and look forward to your support with this year’s exciting events.
