FOSP supports the school by organising fundraising events throughout the year. All of these events are run by parent and carer volunteers like you. After the money has been raised we decide together how it can be spent to improve the learning environment for every child at school.
FOSP has five main branches:
Chair: Jess Sargent is our current FOSP chair, and she’s responsible for running the FOSP meetings and follow-up actions, including setting up working groups, event planning and liaising with the Headteacher and class reps.
Communications: This team looks after communications with parents and carers through newsletters, Parentmail, social media and noticeboards. They also promote FOSP events inside and outside school.
Finance: Annette Blaine and the finance team is responsible for taking care of the money including handling cash, banking, floats for events, paying expenses and donations to the school. They also look after book-keeping and report our financial position back to the school and to the Charity Commission.
Class reps: Class reps are an important link between the parents and the school, and are responsible for organising volunteers for class-related events like cake sales and swimming. Also liaising with the teacher and keeping parents up-to-date on class news, and arranging class coffee mornings and nights out.
Event volunteers: These parents and carers are the backbone of FOSP and none of our fundraising events could happen without them. FOSP volunteers help make Stanley such a friendly community and amazing learning environment for our kids.
