Friends of George Spicer / PTA

 

The Friends of George Spicer School (FOGS) is our Parent Teacher Association.  We are a registered charity acting on behalf, and in the interest, of all children and parents at the school.

Any parent or carer is welcome to join FOGS and volunteer their time, ideas, expertise and enthusiasm towards helping raise money for our children and the school.

As well as raising funds, our key objective is community spirit. We feel that it is important that our children learn from us parents how important our local community is, our events are well attended family days, which are enjoyed by all!

You can read more about us in our information sheet

See below for our upcoming events and online offers to help raise money for the school.

Winter Bazaar Colouring Competition

Look out for the colouring competition in your child’s school bag. The winning design will go on the cover of the Winter Bazaar Programme on the 3rd December plus year group winners will be featured inside. Designs need to be returned to the office by Friday 3rd November and the winners will be called up to receive their certificates in assembly.

 

Spare copies can be printed here if you need them.

Help raise funds while you shop!

Did you know that there are lots of ways you could help raise money for your children’s school without spending any extra money?  FOGS have teamed up with four companies to help boost funds for the school and make it easier for you to be involved.  Our fundraising poster explains how it all works.

 

Matched funding

If you work for an organisation and they have a matched funding policy (sometimes called a corporate social responsibility policy), any money you raise for the school could be matched by your employer. Companies may match the fundraising total for an event, or for the stall that their employee is working on. Usually, the employee will need to supply them with a letter from the PTA detailing the date and nature of the event, together with the total raised.

If your employer operates a matched funding scheme, or if they are willing to match fund any of our events and you are interested in helping us for any of our events, please let us know. This could be a significant source of income for FOGS and help us raise much needed money for George Spicer Primary School at a time when central funding for education is under huge pressure.

 

If you think your company might be able to help, please contact FOGS: f0gspta1@gmail.com
