Friends of Yealmpstone Farm School (FOYFS)
Thank you for taking the time to look at our FOYFS web pages. Let us first introduce ourselves and tell you what we do.
We are parents of children who attend the school, who meet regularly to help organise events to raise vital funds for equipment and to help improve the already excellent facilities for the children.
We always consult the children when the school would like us to raise funds. The School Council are also coming up with ideas for equipment to help their learning.
If you are able to help us out at the event then we would love to hear from you. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave your details with the school office.
We have recently partnered up with "Stamptastic" who supply a range of solutions for naming clothing etc - ideal for school uniforms. By quoting our school's unique code PL71XQ (no spaces) when placing an order we will receive commission back from the company to add to our fundraising pot. You can access their website quickly and easily using this link www.stamptastic.co.uk. Don't forget to quote PL71XQ
FOYFS appreciate all the support that we are given from parents and other organisations. We wouldn't be able to run as effectively as we do without YOUR VITAL HELP.

Where the money raised goes:
This year FOYFS has helped in the setting up of the new Bright Stars CIC to provide affordable breakfast and after school care for the children.
FOYFS has also paid for Commemorative Queen's Birthday coins for each child.
Children have had trips subsidised to the sum of £5 per child.
New water bottles for every child in Foundation so they can drink anywhere in the school when needed.
The Y6 end of year production has been subsidised.
School leaver gifts purchased.
We are always looking for new members to join in with fund raising ideas and help us organise these events. Many parents may have new ideas or may have special skills that we could 'tap' into! You only need commit to whatever time you can spare and don't need to sign up to a designate role on the committee. The more parents we have involved in what we do the wider our expertise and easier it is to put on events.
If any of you feel that you have an idea, or if you can help in any way, please contact us via the school office.
