FoSS (Friends of Shrivenham School)

Welcome to FoSS!

Registered Charity Commission No. 1030832


FoSS stands for Friends of Shrivenham School, and we are the ‘PTA’ group for our school.


Who are we?

We are a welcoming group of parents who make up the FoSS committee. Every parent and carer at Shrivenham CE School are automatically included as a member of FoSS and are welcome to attend any of our meetings or be involved in supporting fundraising events. See further down for a who's who of the current committee!


What do we do?

Together we organise a range of events to raise money for the school to enhance the educational experience for pupils attending the school. Last year enhancements included the funding of transport for trips and off-site activities, iSing Pop, as well as new books for the Reception and Key Stage 1 classes. Events range from Christmas Fayres, Easter Egg Hunts, Discos and Race nights; to ongoing ways of fundraising such as a 100 club and clothing collections. Highlights of recent events can be found further down the page!

We are holding a family friendly disco at Roves Farm, Friday 29 September, 4.30pm-6.30pm. Children will also be able to use the indoor play barn facilities at Roves Farm whilst they are at the disco. All money raised goes to Shrivenham Primary School. Early booking advised as limited capacity.


Tickets are £6 per child which includes: entry to the indoor play barn and family friendly disco, plus snack tea for the children - ham, cheese and jam sandwich, crisps, biscuit and a drink as well as a glow stick. Children under 2 go free and there is no charge for adults. Tea/coffee/soft drinks and tray bakes will be available. Adults must stay on site and are responsible for supervising their children at all times.
