The Friends of St Paul’s (FOSP) primary focus is to raise funds to support St Paul’s C of E Primary, in order to benefit and enhance the quality of education and experiences of all pupils.
Everyone who has a child at St. Paul’s C of E is a Friend of St. Paul's and as many volunteers as possible are welcomed to support FOSP and the school in the following areas:
- to help and support at FOSP events throughout the academic year
- to attend FOSP meetings and contribute to ideas regarding how funds can be raised
- to make suggestions and decisions on how the money is used to benefit school
FOSP organise a range of events throughout the year, which vary between fundraising efforts and social events for families and children to enjoy. Successful events over the last academic year have included the Sausage Sizzle BBQ; the Christmas Fair; discos; a sunflower growing challenge; an Easter cake sale; a quiz and curry night; a Holgate Hunt and the very popular Summer Fair.
The money FOSP raise goes a very long way in helping fund and benefit a variety of enrichment and curriculum activities; trips; treats; special events; awards and year 6 leavers gifts. FOSP have also raised money for a new reading shed in the playground, which has had such a positive impact on children needing any quiet or reflection time during break and lunch times.
