Welcome to FOSS!

I would like to welcome you to Scholes School and introduce FOSS – Friends of Scholes School.  We are a group of volunteers who organise fun family events and raise money to provide additional resources, which enhance the school life of our children.  As a Parent or Carer of a child attending Scholes School, you are automatically a member of FOSS, along with all the Staff of the School.  In addition some past parents and Grandparents remain members and provide an amazing amount of support at FOSS events.

Each year, at an Annual General Meeting in October, a committee is elected.  With the help of interested parents and staff they set about organising events for the following year – including the Christmas Fayre, School Disco, Family Games Night and Family Walk.  The biggest event of the year,Scholes School Carnival is held on the last Saturday in June; and involves a parade around the village, followed by an afternoon of entertainment, games and stalls in the School grounds.

The money raised throughout the year is used to benefit the children in school in many ways.  FOSS helps to pay for the school texting service, and has recently purchased the sheltered learning area outside EYFS/Year 1.  In 2010 FOSS contributed £10,000 towards the building of the Scholes School Stadium.  Without the generous support of parents, family and friends, this wouldn’t have been possible.

FOSS membership is continually changing as children grow up and leave the school, so we are always looking for new people to come along and help out.  This could be by sharing ideas and opinions at meetings, or volunteering to help at events.  No matter how big or small, every bit of help is greatly appreciated and it can be great fun!
