Friends of Park Spring (FOPS)

FOPS (PTA)

(Friends of Park  Spring Primary School)

 

Friends of Park Spring is a diverse group of carers and parents. What connects us is our mission to support our amazing school; the relationship between our fantastic children, super staff, parents and carers. We do this by raising money, supporting class needs, running events for the children and connecting the school with the local community.

 

Our fundraising helps provide each class with that little extra; equipment, specialist furniture and resources, school outings and special treats. Our main aim this year is raising money for a minibus.

 

FOPS is a helpful, friendly face around school and hope to bring a little extra to the whole school ethos.

 

Over the past few years we have raised money to buy: cameras for each class, Y6 leavers t-shirts, replaced indoor play equipment, subsidised curriculum events, funded the EYFS scooters and even organised a pantomime!

 

We are always looking for willing volunteers to join the committee or help out at events e.g. Summer Fair, School Discos & Cake sales and appreciate any help you can give.

 

If you would like to know more please contact Mr Barker (Deputy Head), a FOPS member or email us at fops@parkspringprimary.co.uk
