Friends of the School (FOTs)


Hands up if YOU can help your child’s school……

Our aim is to raise money for the School and Nursery to spend on items that might not otherwise be available from the normal school budget. FOTs think of ideas to raise money for our children, so that they can enjoy their school lives to the full. Our events give the children the chance to have some fun with their school friends out of school hours. Your participation in these events is vital to our success.

Who are the FOTs?

Friends of the School (FOTs) includes a group of parent, volunteers and carers of pupils at Skelmanthorpe Academy

What is the money spent on?

The money we raise is spent on books, indoor and outdoor play equipment, storage, IT equipment and anything that will benefit the school and pupils, without these funds our children will not have access to the extra things that make their school life better.

How is the money raised?

During the year we hold various events including: - Discos, and Movie Nights.

www.easyfundraising.org.uk - this is a fantastic and simple way to raise funds and you really don’t need to do anything, just register - for more information please speak with a FOTs member

So, how can YOU help?

Simple, we don’t ask for a lot, but without a little bit of your help it’s very difficult to put any events on for our children to enjoy. Helping can be as simple as supervising the children at Movie Night, to helping with refreshments at one of our evenings. Honestly, every little really does help. Even donating a raffle prize for these events or Fairs is a help.
