The Friends of Stanley Bay School (FOSB) is a group of parents who volunteer their time to run events that build school and community spirit as well as raising vital funds for our great school. The school relies on these funds for school improvements as agreed by the Board - including increased teaching resource to maintain our small class sizes, teacher aides, professional development for the teachers and classroom equipment.  Despite careful budgeting for 2021 a budget deficit is again projected. This makes fundraising vitally important in continuing to provide the level of levels of education our children deserve.

Our Objectives
We raise funds annually to support the school budget and enhance the education and well-being of our students. We plan and deliver social activities and events for the purpose of:

  • Building strong relationships and a positive sense of belonging within our school community
  • Fundraising
  • Promoting and increasing our school’s profile in the wider community

We need your help 

Due to recent changes in the team we're seeking a new Chair for 2021. We function as a sub-committee of the school Board with several parents who meet monthly, supported by a wider group of parents who help as and when they can or lead one-off events. Everyone is welcome to help and/or join in, be it as an ad-hoc volunteer or committee member.  FOSB is a great way to meet new friends and join the community so if you are interested or want to know more, we would love to chat to you.  Please contact Lucy Naylor at school.
