Friends of Portishead Primary
HELLO! Welcome to the Friends of Portishead Primary School (FOS) page.
We're a small, friendly group of parents who fund and organise the school's key social and fundraising events from the summer and Christmas fairs to Fireworks night, discos and pantomimes.
Each class has a school rep and they help us share information.
We work closely with the headteacher to help ensure that the money we raise is used alongside the school budget to make the most difference to children.
Our work has helped fund the outside play equipment, pirate island, i-pads, the hall staging and sound system, books and library redevelopment, wet play games and much more.
Whilst the fundraising is important, our events help open the school to the community in an informal way and help build relationships. It is a very important element of the school vision.
Our committee is led jointly by our Chairs, Jude Woodcock and Tara Townley.
We meet termly on an informal basis and more details can be found by search and following our Portishead Primary School FOS page.
This page is often used to help disseminate important emergency messages and other key information e.g. snow closures.
During the pandemic our fundraising and events have shifted online and reflected the need to follow lockdown rules.
We arranged for Santa to speak to all of the classes, funded an online school pantomime, arranged a Halloween trail, a virtual wreathe making evening and have provided morale boosting treats to keep the staff fuelled whilst proving learning for critical worker children.
