How you can help

FOCS is led by a dedicated committee of 4 parent volunteers … but it depends on a cast of tens of other Friends to bring together events, fundraising initiatives and keep things ticking along (for example this web page you are reading is being typed by a Chase Side mum volunteer whilst the tea is cooking!).

Do you have some extra time you could lend to FOCS? Perhaps you have a skill that could be useful to us? Or a willingness to pitch in and lead an activity or to help promote events or translate our communications (verbally or otherwise) to your language so we can reach more parents. We always need more volunteers at our Christmas and Summer Fayres to run stalls, take photos and extra pairs of hands to fold raffle tickets.

A willingness to get involved is all you really need, so if that is you, please get in touch!

We run monthly evening meetings where everyone is welcome (see the school newsletter for upcoming dates). But if evenings don’t work for you, it’s not a problem. You can grab one of the Committee in the playground, post on our Facebook group or drop us a line at:

If you can’t offer time then FOCS are always happy to have money! Please support our events, initiatives, sponsor those fundraising for us and sign up for EasyFundraising to raise money for FOCS when you are online shopping (at no cost to you).

As ever, THANK YOU!
