FOPS (PTA)

Parent Teachers Association

Petersfield FOPS is a well-established partnership between parents, teachers and the local community that aims to strengthen the school community and raise funds. Money raised by FOPS is to fund the 'extras' that the school would not otherwise be able to provide. Decisions about what to fund are made each year by the FOPS committee with input and requests from parents and teachers alike.

PTA

Regular FOPS events through out the school year include:

  • Fireworks night - a night of fun and fireworks for the whole family offering a good-value night with BBQ, Glosticks, mulled wine and hot chocolate, sweets and more! The provisional date for Fireworks this year is Friday 6th November. TBC.
  • The Christmas Fair - a chance for the children to share the excitement of Christmas with a cake stall, teas and coffees, secret presents, a raffle, tombola, and games stalls. TBC.
  • Schools Discos - Key stage 1 and 2 discos held each term as a chance for pupils to get together with their friends and have fun. We sell sweets and drinks, do face-painting, temporary tattoos and nails.
  • RUN ORWELL – For 2020, this is now a virtual event and can be completed any time this calendar year. Visitwww.runorwell.com for more information.
  • Cake stalls - organised by the pupils and held once a half term hosted by each class in turn. It is a great way for pupils and parents to get involved as they help sell the cakes to the rest of the school and other parents.
  • Quiz nights - a great night out, and it does get quite raucous at times!
