FOGGS: Friends of Goose Green School

FOGGS is the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) for Goose Green School. Its objectives are to:

  • Help build an inclusive and friendly community for parents, carers, teachers and the local community
  • Raise much needed extra funds to support the school in looking after the education, enrichment and well-being of our children.

FOGGS organises a range of activities and events across the school year. We hope this broad range means that there’s something of interest to everyone.

Committee meetings generally take place a couple of times a term – everyone welcome!

What happens to funds raised?

FOGGS raises thousands of pounds each year from the activities it organises to provide the school with items requested by the school. Over the last year, funds raised by FOGGS have gone towards:

  • Coaches for year 4 and year 6 residentials
  • Mathletics
  • Spellodrome
  • Scrap project
  • Year 5 Steel Pan lessons
  • Library books

The school has asked that funds raised in the coming year also go towards these activities.
