Friends Of Shapwick

Friends of Shapwick is the PTA of Shapwick School.  Members can be parents, guardians or carers of any pupil currently attending school, teaching and non-teaching staff currently employed at the school and any person over the age of 18 wishing to offer appropriate support or help to the school and who is accepted by the committee as a member.

The object of our association is to advance the education of the pupils in the school in particular by developing effective relations between the staff, parents and others associated with the school and by engaging in activities or providing facilities or equipment that support the school and advance the education of the pupils.

If you’d like to join or to be on our mailing list, please email us at fos@shapwickschool.com with your contact details and we will send you agenda and minutes of the meetings, and keep you updated about our activities.

Fund Raising

Easy fundraising

RAISE MONEY THE EASY WAY!
Using Easyfundraising is just about the simplest way to raise money for Friends of Shapwick. Whenever you buy anything online - from your weekly shop to your annual holiday - you generate free donations. Easyfundraising works with over 3000 retailers who have all agreed to pass a donation when you shop with them. The donation is usually a percentage of how much you spend with them but it can also be a set amount. The retailers include AmazonM&SBodenJohn LewisArgos and 2000 other well known names. The best news is: it doesn’t cost you a penny extra!

Shapwick School Kit

SPORTS KIT
Do you have any unwanted/outgrown sports kit you would be happy to donate to help raise funds? Friends of Shapwick are collecting them! They will be washed and tags will be removed, ready to be sold for fundraising. Bring them to the House Parents or to the school reception and we’ll take it from there.

F.O.S. meeting - January 12th 

We were happy to welcome three new members at the FoS meeting on January 12th.

During that meeting we looked back at the Christmas Fayre; although the format will change, we want it to be a yearly event so we will continue working on it. 

We are trying to find solutions to collect and sell used sports kits as it has proven difficult to reach all parents.

We also looked at the financials for 2017, money raised and grants and sponsorships allocated, this was definitely a success; we will continue this program.

We also discussed many fundraising ideas that we will work on in the next meetings.

If you would like to join us, the dates for the rest of the school year are right on this page.  You can write to us at fos@shapwickschool.com if you have any questions or ideas!

 

Christmas Fayre - December 8th
