Hello, we are the parents that make up the small FOSS committee. Our job is to co-ordinate and help the school to organise fun events for the pupils and parents at Standlake. Whilst doing this we try to raise the vital funds that help to provide the little “extras” as well as support the larger projects within the school.
We aim to involve the village and local community where possible during our fundraising but most importantly aim to support the school to give the children great memories to take from their years at Primary school.
Everyone automatically becomes a member of FOSS upon joining the school and everyone is more than welcome to come along to our ‘informal’ meetings. If you feel you would like to be more involved or can help out in any way we would love to hear from you.
You can contact us via our closed Facebook Group, the FOSS emailing list or even better catch us for a chat in the playground.
Thank you for the support of our members we couldn't achieve any of this without your continued help and generosity
