Shalfleet School has an active FOSS (Friends of Shalfleet School) group. We fund raise throughout the year and hold many fun events for both the children and parents/carers. In the past, these have included quiz nights, children’s discos, beetle drives, cake sales and various fayres. The money raised through these events enable the school to benefit from extra equipment that they would otherwise not have. If you would like to join FOSS or have any ideas for fundraising, please do come along to one of our meetings, you would be very welcome – Check the school weekly newsletter for dates and times of events for you to come along and support and also for meetings.


With the summer term now upon us, we are starting to plan events. So far we have the following arranged:
· 25th May Race for Life
· 30th June Summer Fayre
Our summer fayre is one of our biggest fundraising events of the year. We are currently advertising stall space so if you know of anyone who would like a stall, please contact us (see email below). We are also looking for any donations for raffle prizes. All donations gratefully received. If there are any parents working for larger companies which might be interested in taking part in match funding (government scheme) please do contact us as soon as possible.
· 4th July Sports Day
If you have any queries or are able to offer any help, please do email Inez on

Enormous thanks to Hannah & Mike (parents to Fred in reception class) who held their own amazing raffle in aid of the pre-school and our playground fund. They raised £100.00 for each of us. Huge thanks, we are so very grateful.

Thank you to all who helped and/or supported our Christmas Fayre. It was a great success, raising £1388!
Our request for raffle prizes was very successful with many local businesses supporting our fundraising. We had so many donations that we were able to make up a hamper, this was raffled off after the Key Stage 1 performances and raised an additional £126!
Sometimes it must seem that we are continuously asking for money and donations but we are determined to raise enough money to replace the playground equipment which will benefit all children.
The PTFA team would like to thank you for your continued support.

School Disco

Thank you to all that came to the disco on Friday. A huge thank you to Josh Stringer the DJ who did it free of charge for the school. It raised £250.00.

PTFA July 2016 Update

Our school disco proved to be a hit with splitting into 2 sessions and raised £132.00.

Shortly after sports day is the summer fayre on Saturday the 9th July, last year was a cracker and raised £1200.00.

So far this school year we have been able to write cheques for £1700.00 (£10.00 for every child) towards trips. £120.00 contribution to the queens tea party. £205.00 for a new PA system. £375.00 for year 6 leavers. £500.00 for a new shed, £205.00 for Christmas books and £50.00 for a new water heater.
All of this would not be possible without your kind generosity and a lot of hard work from our small PTFA team.

We look forward to welcoming lots of new people to the meetings and arranging future events.

Thank you and with very kind regards
Inez and the PTFA team
