Mrs L Downes
Welcome to Friends of Sandling School (FOSS). The School is supported by an active Parent Teacher Association. The Association primarily consists of parents and carers of children attending the school plus the HeadTeacher Mrs Downes and the Deputy Head, Miss Coombes.
The primary aim of FOSS is to raise funds for the school to promote and complement the education of the children at Sandling School.
We hold a variety of fundraising events throughout the year, ranging from large to small, such as Summer & Christmas Fairs, Quiz Nights, Recycling Shemes, Summer Ball, Race Nights and school uniform sales. However, new ideas are always welcome. Over the last few years, we have raised funds for Visualizer’s for each classroom, a trim trail and outdoor classroom.
Committee meetings are held approximately once a term, sometimes more often. These, along with the events held, are a great opportunity for meeting other parents and exchanging ideas. We also have a large number of “helpers”, who bring an individual skill to the team or who even if they are unable to attend the meetings, will help at a certain event on the day.
We encourage all parents/carers of children at the school to become involved and support the school. Everybody’s contribution is welcome and our success depends entirely on the support that we receive.
If you would like to speak to any of the Officers of the Committee, please contact the school office.
We hope that your time with us is happy and that we help the Sandling children to learn, achieve and have fun together.
