Friends of Charsfield School (FOCS)

The ‘Friends’ include everyone with an association to Charsfield Primary School that is – parents, guardians, carers, grandparents, staff, voluntary helpers, teachers, governors etc.

FOCS is an informal friendly group.  They give their time to organise fun fundraising events to provide the school with additional money to purchase products and services that the school would either have to do without or would have to ask for parents assistance.

Examples of projects they have supported are:

The outdoor classroom, the adventure playground, Charsfield Chat, play equipment for Class 1, a new cooker, a circus workshop and we pay for yearly coach trips for each class.

We always need more ‘ordinary members’ to come along to meetings with ideas and general support and also to help out at the various fund raising events.  It is also a great way to make new friends whilst helping to support the school.

PTA update

Christmas Fair

Our Christmas Fayre was a great success thanks to all of those that either helped to run the event, sent in contributions for stalls or came and spent your pennies with us.  It is all very much appreciated and just goes to show what a fantastic support network we have here in our small school.  The whole event, including the selling of the children’s fabulous Christmas Cards, raised an amazing £378.00


We have decided to use some of this to buy food and drink for the Class Parties on the last day of term and more seriously to replace a heater in the school hall that has broken.  After Christmas the school council will meet to discuss how we could spend the remaining money so watch this space.

Spooky Disco


On Thurs 2nd Nov ember the children enjoyed an amazing Spooky Disco.  A huge thank you to all those that either attended, donated some amazing cakes and tombola goodies, or helped on the night.  We raised £115 on the tickets, £13.70 donations for tea/coffee and the cake sale made £17.15, making a fabulous total of £145.85 for the school funds.


What a busy few months for the FOCS. The Fram Gala "Grease" Theamed Float and leaflet drop to increase awareness of our school, (photo below) & Charsfest, Scones for the Queen’s Birthday celebrations, Drinks & Ice Lollies for Dodge ball, Cakes, Drinks & Cookies for Sports Day & then onwards to the massively successful SPORKEN.


We want to thank everyone for their continued support & hope that everyone has had a chance to participate in at least a few of these activities. More to come in the next 6 months so please keep an eye out. Don’t forget that Easy Fundraising & the Clothes Drop are ongoing & we need your support.
