How To Get Involved

All parents/carers are members of FOSP from the moment your child starts Stanley School. There are plenty of ways you can get involved and it's easy to find something that fits around your family and work commitments. Here are some of the ways you can get involved:


Event volunteers

Each year group is responsible for organising different events throughout the year, and each event needs extra volunteers to help out from any year group. Parents/carers are the backbone of FOSP and none of our fundraising events could happen without their help. For example:


  • Organising and volunteering at fundraising events e.g. Christmas Bazaar, May Fair and Fireworks Night
  • Organising and volunteering at social events e.g. Quiz Night and Wine tasting 
  • Helping out after school at cake sales, second hand uniform sales and Book Fair
  • Encouraging local businesses to support school events 
  • Helping at swimming lessons or children reading in school 


Other ways to help:

Communications - e.g. Design posters, writing copy, managing social media, photocopying and sending out news and flyers etc. Email:

Finance - e.g. Book-keeping, accounts, getting cash floats for events etc. Email:

Class reps e.g. Being a class rep, finding volunteers for cake sales and swimming, organising teacher leaving gifts, coffee mornings and drinks nights. (This job is great shared between two people per class) Email:

Pre-loved uniform - Sorting out donations and setting up the uniform 'stall' a few times a year. Email:

Living classroom - Working with the green-fingered team to rejuvenate the school vegetable and herb gardens, flower beds, and woodland retreat area. Email:
