Friends of Snitterfield School (FOSS) 


Friends of Snitterfield School (FOSS) is a small group of volunteers that play an active role in raising funds for the school & for all our children’s growth and learning.

We actively seek to arrange events that are social, fun and raise much needed funds for school resources. Historically, we have helped to fund school trips, IT equipment, stationary & books. Moving forwards we are looking to fund a few bigger projects. 

As a small group we are always seeking new members/volunteers. Being part of FOSS is a great way of meeting other parents, and school staff. The more people involved the less time commitment for all – everyone is welcome!

We have class representatives in every year so please do get in touch if you would like to help out.

Fundraising Ideas

We are always keen to hear new ideas for fundraising, and are always seeking grant funding for specific projects.

We know many companies will match fund some fundraising efforts. If you know your company will support this we’d love to hear from you.
