Friends of George Spicer (FoGS)
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, carer, grandparent of pupils, or member of George Spicer Primary School staff 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 promoting community spirit. We feel that it is important that our children learn from their families how important their local community is.
If you're interested in getting involved and making a positive impact on your child's education, joining FOGS is a fantastic way to do just that! It will enable you have the opportunity to work alongside other parents and teachers to organise fun events and raise funds for important school programs and equipment. Find out more.

WAYS YOU CAN HELP

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. 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, 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.
