Friends of Spratton School (FOSS)
We are incredibly grateful for the continuing great work of FOSS (Friends of Spratton School) who organise entertaining activities for families to enjoy throughout the year and raise amazing amounts of money for our school. This money is used for additional exciting experiences and support for learning for all children in the school that we would otherwise be unable to fund. This invaluable contribution from our school community enables us to provide an enriched curriculum and access to excellent resources.
FOSS always welcomes new members who are able to help to organise and support events.
If you would like to find out more, please see the FOSS Facebook page or contact Jonathan Pykett (FOSS Chair) by email email@example.com or through the school office.
It's beginning to look a lot like The FOSS Christmas Stall!
Every school day, week commencing 13th December, FOSS will be running a stall outside the school gates during pickup time selling this year’s creations from the children of Spratton CE School.
The children have been hard at work drawing self-portraits and taking photos around the school grounds to create tea towels and a 2022 Calendar (priced at £10 each). These will make the perfect gift for all the family.
They will also be selling raffle tickets and reindeer feed and much, much more.
For advanced purchase of raffle tickets (£1 per strip), contact a member of the FOSS committee or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be accepting cash or contactless card payments.
All profit generated by their stall will go back into providing those little extras for the children of Spratton CE School.

FOSS Autumn Stall
Thank you to everyone who ran and visited the FOSS Autumn stall before half term. We braved all weathers and are pleased to say we raised more than
We think it’s safe to say the Sweet Cones went down very well, and we had lots of great entries into our “What’s in the boxes?” competition as well as some fantastic drawings!
Congratulations to the lucky winners from each year group who received their prizes in school.
All profits from the competition will go back into providing extra resources for the school. We, and the school really appreciate your support and generosity.
Annual General Meeting 2021
The FOSS AGM took place on Friday 17th September 2021.
This was an open meeting, and we are delighted to have new members joining the committee this year.
Thanks were expressed for FOSS’s kind gift of an ice cream for every child at the end of last term, and the creative ways the group managed to raise funds during the very challenging year!
We always keen to welcome volunteers to help us with fundraising events and other support for the children in the school.

Friends of Spratton School is our school community support group who do fantastic fundraising work for our school and provide opportunities and curriculum enrichment for all children. Last year (2019-2020) the group made a fantastic contribution to learning and engagement in the school, providing funding for several events including a theatre trip, a visit from Lion Learners Menagerie and fun events for the children during the year.
They also purchased some fantastic resources for the children to access in our school library including subscriptions to Storytime magazine, First News newspapers and hundreds of lovely new books. In addition to this, a set of iPads currently in use in school were kindly purchased for us by FOSS.
Despite the challenges posed by the current situation, FOSS are still going strong and are holding their Annual General Meeting next Thursday at 8pm via Zoom. New members are always welcome, so please contact the Chair of the Group Vicki Skinner via the school office if you would like to join us.
