Welcome to Friends of Grangefield School (FoGS)!

WHO ARE WE? FoGS is a registered children’s charity (Charity No.1167659) and a group of enthusiastic parents, carers, teachers and friends of the school who all give our time on a voluntary basis to organise and run fundraising activities for our school and also the wider community of Bishop’s Cleeve.

Our mission is to raise funds to enhance the school experience for all children at Grangefield. In the past we have built the wooden castle and ship in the playground, provided a school trip to the pantomine, purchased fun activities for playtime and wet play, plus many other items and activities. The funds we raise contribute to our children’s education and enjoyment of school life.

We succeed on the strength of your support and involvement! Without this combined effort FoGS would not be able to support our children in such a special and unique way. Every bit of help counts and there are lots of different ways to get involved. It could be as simple as buying a ticket and coming along to an event or buying a raffle ticket. You might be willing to help out at an event or make some cakes for a stall. Maybe you have some new ideas for fundraising events?

Be a Friend If you would like to find out more about what we do or become involved in FoGS, you are welcome to come along to one of our meetings (ask the School Office for details) or email us.

COMMITTEE MEMBERS The FoGS Committee is made up of parents and teachers, formally elected each year at the AGM in September, in line with the PTA Constitution.  However, new committee members are warmly welcomed at any time of the year as are new ideas and suggestions for fundraising and fun events!

The FoGS Committee meets at least once a month and everyone is welcome to attend. Dates for Committee meetings are advertised in advance and are very informal, open and friendly, so feel free to come along! FoGS Committee Meetings are generally held at Lowry’s in Tarlings Yard, Bishops Cleeve.
