What is FosPS?
FoSPS is the Friends of St Peters School: the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) of St Peter’s School, Cowfold.

FoSPS is charitable organisation and is managed by a committee.  The committee is elected annually and consists mainly of parents whose children attend the school.

FoSPS was formed during the 2005/2006 academic year and replaced the previous PTA in name only believing that with a new name came warmth and friendliness, both of which it hoped would encourage new members.

What we do
FoSPS are responsible for organising a number of annual events which aim to provide enjoyment for all of those who attend: the children of the school, their parents/carers, and the wider community and we even raise some money too!

How to join FoSPS
As soon as a child joins the school, the parents/carers are automatically FoSPS members.  Parents/carers can then choose to join the Committee Member and take on a more active role.  Parents/carers can attend the FoSPS meetings as often or as little as they like and can join sub-committees if they are interested in helping to organise the main events.

What FoSPS funds have purchased for the school
ALL funds raised are given to the school and enable additional resources to be purchased to benefit the children.  During 2012/13 we raised enough money to buy six i-pads for the school. In 2014/15 we raised money for an outdoor theatre for the children and our current focus is still on developing the school grounds.

Each year FoSPS also assist the school in providing transport for school trips (keeping individual costs lower for parents), the children’s Christmas pantomime and Christmas crackers, Year 6 leavers’ party and more.
