Who We Are

 FOSS logo

Friends of Shelley School (FOSS) is the school's PTA (Parent Teacher Association)

We are a registered charity who organise a variety of events for the children and/or parents to enjoy, and in doing so raise valuable funds for the school.  All funds raised go directly back to the school and its pupils

FOSS is run by a friendly group of parents on a voluntary basis and any help that parents can offer is greatly appreciated, whether that be helping on the committee or helping to run a stall at an event.

We meet twice a term to discuss ideas for fundraising events to raise money for the school and discuss the planning and organising of events.

We hold events such as:

  • Sponsored walk with refreshments
  • Christmas bazaar
  • Plant stall
  • Summer fete

We also organise entertainment events such as:

  • School discos
  • Christmas parties with a visit from Santa
  • Year 6 leavers gift and party

We have a candy floss machine that is available for hire.  Please see for more details.

The money raised pays for things like:

  • Upgrade to the infants play area
  • Upkeep of the pond and conservation area
  • Replacement of picnic benches
  • New PA system

If you would like to join the committee, or help at any events that we run, or if you have any ideas for new events, please email us at or contact school reception.
