  • The Big Breakfast is back! Join the FoSS team for their famous Big Breakfast fundraising event on Saturday 18 June from 10am to 1pm. From a 9 item full English  to a breakfast bap, enjoy breakfast with us and help raise funds for the work FoSS does to support the school. There'll also be a Tombola, raffle, children's crafts and other activities. If any parents or family members are able to sign up to help for an hour during the Big Breakfast, that would be really helpful and much appreciated. Please let Kim Lightburn, Val Sowerby, Teresa Martin or Sarah Bruce know if you can help. We're looking forward to seeing you there! 
  • Ice Lolly Fridays are back for the summer term! We'll be selling lollies to raise money for FoSS funds every Friday throughout this half term outside school at 3.15pm. All lollies at 50p.
  • Would you be interested in joining the FoSS team? We'd love to have some new committee members and volunteers to help at events. Please get in touch with Kim Lightburn, Val Sowerby or Sarah Bruce from the committee. 
  • Our AGM was held at 4.15pm on 17th May. A link to the AGM minutes is available below.
