What is FOSS?
The Friends of Stoke Gabriel School (FOSS) is our parent teacher association.
FOSS is run by parents and raises money to enhance the experience our children have while pupils at Stoke Gabriel Primary School.
We don’t have a mission statement, but if we did, it would be something like this:
To raise money, through a series of local events, to enhance the experience our children have while pupils at Stoke Gabriel Primary School and to help foster great relationships between parents, teachers and others associated with the school.
All parents are automatically members of FOSS and everyone is welcome to come along to our meetings.
We have our own Facebook page where you can find out more about what we’re up to.
We are a member of PTA UK which also provides our insurance. They have an interesting website with lots of fundraising ideas at http://www.pta.co.uk/ – do let us know if you would be interested in running a fundraiser for the school!
We’re also a UK Registered Charity No. 1132475
Caroline Bolingbroke – Chair & Trustee
Sharon Rogers – Treasurer & Trustee
Paul Vaughan – Secretary & Trustee
We have a large team of fantastic parents who organise village events including Stoke Gabriel Wassail and various fairs.
