The Federation of Church Schools of Shalfleet and Yarmouth



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.


Coronavirus Update
Despite being unable to organise a summer fayre and any other fundraising events the PTFA were still able to
provide leavers hoodies for the year 6s back in July and also contribute over £260 towards the well-being garden.
The PTFA has also agreed to fund around £300 of new books for rainbow class.
Sadly, they can’t hold a Christmas fayre this year but would still like to have a Christmas raffle in order to
continue raising funds to pay for all the little extras for our children and school. We would be so grateful for any
raffle prizes you are able to donate. Please send them into school or email Inez or

Christmas Fayre
A huge Christmas thank-you to everyone who supported the Christmas fayre. We raised an amazing £1159.00. This will help fund many wonderful projects at Shalfleet over the coming year like the books the children had earlier in the week and the games on Christmas party day.
Many thanks

We are delighted to let you know that this year’s summer fayre raised an amazing £1586! Thank you again to everyone who helped and to the following, who donated raffle prizes:
Jenny, Louise, and everyone at Rhythm Tree. The Blacksmiths, Tapnell Farm, The Blue Crab, 
Waitrose, The Sun Inn, West Wight Alpacas, On The Rocks, Wight Karting, Needles Pleasure Cruises, Asda for their hamper, Black Rock Charters, West Wight Sports Centre, Mrs Blackley for the cricket set.

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.
