Friends of Sledmere School
The Friends of Sledmere School include parents and teachers but also to interested local residents, extended family members and local business owners. We regularly ask our members to have a say about our activities through a yearly Annual General Meeting and in committee meetings which take place every half term.
FOSS’s purpose is to support the education of pupils in school by developing effective relationships between staff and parents and providing extra activities, facilities and equipment.
Recently, we have provided exciting experiences such as a Spring Disco, a circus skills workshop, coaches for a trip to the pantomime, and a skype phone call with Michael Rosen, whilst supporting larger initiatives such as the provision of class Ipads. In 2017 we have been successful in our bid to the Tesco Bags of Help scheme and have been awarded the top grant of £12,000 to help develop our outdoor spaces into an exciting place to work, play and reflect.
The committee consists of Rebecca Stokes, Chair, Sarah Hastie, Secretary and Rox Bramma, Treasurer and FOSS also has a regular pool of committed volunteers who either attend meetings, or are active in our fundraising events.
FOSS is very grateful for the ongoing support of Sir Tatton Sykes, and the Sledmere Estate.
