Parents’ Association – FOSRS

Stoke Row School has a very active and enthusiastic parents’ association, Friends of Stoke Row School (FOSRS) which holds many events throughout the academic year.

FOSRS role within the school is to raise funds for school projects and equipment along with contributing to the main infrastructure of the school.  In addition FOSRS organise fun events for both children and parents throughout the year.

Meetings are held twice termly with many impromptu ones in between.  All parents are welcome and encouraged to join any of the meetings.  The FOSRS meetings provide an opportunity for parents to discuss how to support the School in positive ways.

FOSRS reached their fundraising goal for 2016 and 2017 which meant the school could install new road safety signs outside of the school gates to provide safety when children cross the road to enter the school. 

In addition FOSRS supported the school in obtaining an “Awards for All” funding and installing an outdoor classroom and new thermoplastics for the playground in 2015. FOSRS have raised money in the past couple of years which has enabled the school to purchase new playground equipment with a tower and climbing apparatus for use by all year groups.
