(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.
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: a minibus, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Below are some pictures from some of the events we have done including the easter egg hunt, halloween disco and the pancake day event.

“I’m mum to two boys in school. I am the treasurer of FOPS, a PSPS governor and I work as an accountant (I’m a bit of a maths nerd!). In the little free time I get, I enjoy watching soaps, reading and wine tasting”

“Hi I’m Adelle, mum to daughters Lacey & Rosie. I have previous experience of being on a PT committee. I chose to be a FOPSter to meet like minded parents and extend my social network. I aim to bring some fresh ideas and creativity to the group, fitting it around other commitments. Just having fun and more involvement with the out of school activities will also give me some common ground with my daughter”
