Friends of Ireleth (FOI)
Many schools have a PTA, Parents Association or Friends of… Group. They are a great way of getting to know other families and staff whilst making a real contribution to the quality of school life for all.
Whilst fund-raising is a major part of Friends of Ireleth (FOI) activities and directly contributes to the improvement of the school, there's a lot more to it than that. FOI provides a great way to build the whole school community, including links with the wider society, all of which benefits the school and offers a positive influence within the local area.
In a nutshell, FOI members also provide a willing workforce for the school when extra hands are needed, hold social events to bond the school community, run extra-curricular clubs for children and adults, and support parents through times of change. Members are knowledgeable about the school and enthuse about it to enhance its reputation to the wider community. The varied work means there's something for everyone - it's not just about being on the committee.
Children love seeing their parent/carers in school. You can benefit them, improve their educational environment and make friends too.
If you would like to become a committee member or help with any upcoming events with FOI please contact our staff representatives on:
