What does the Friends of Stanford School do?

We are primarily a fund-raising body which aims to raise money for the extras that the school budget will not cover.

Family Bingo Night
On Saturday 30th September we held our first ever family bingo night. It was a brilliant success with over 100 people in attendance.

The night was full of laughter, lots of noise and many children and adults winning prizes.

Thank you to FOSS for organising the night, to Lee and Eva for cooking the food, which proved very popular and to Mr Amies for calling.

Summer Fete:
On Saturday 15th July we held our annual Summer Fete. It was an amazing afternoon. There was a great atmosphere with lots of people in attendance.

The acts in the arena performed brilliantly - the school band playing 'The Flintstones,' the school choir, dance club, Year 1's for did a maypole dance, Year 4 singing 'No worries,' the local karate club, Year 5 playing their guitars and the gym club. Well done to all the children who performed and the staff who worked with them. We had lots of teams in the tug of war but after many tugs we had four overall winners - well done to them all. Around the fete there were many stalls, a tombola, raffle, bouncy slide, games, bar, barbeque and some small reptiles and insects. A big thank you to all the staff who went in the stocks for a soaking!

Many thanks to everyone who made it happen - the FOSS members, David Bailey, Amanda (Animal lady), Neil Mantle, Lenny, the school governors, the staff and the children, plus other parents who were roped in to help.

Here are some sounds of the day:
