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 Christmas Fayre - 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.
  • 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 – Offering chipped timed 5k and 10k routes and a 2k fun run, save the date – 30th June 2019
  • 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.
  • Annual Quiz night - a great night out, and it does get quite raucous at times!

The Giving Machine allows you to shop at all major retailers and at the same time generate a donation to the FOPS without any cost to you. Just follow the link and sign up, adding 'Petersfield' as your cause to support.

The FOPS have set up an online ticket office for you to buy your tickets to the wonderful events run throughout the year such as the 'Pop Up Circus'. Here you can pay with credit or debit card. Please visit our PTA Website to see what's on sale and find out about upcoming events.

Examples of how FOPS funds have been used:

  • To improve the school library
  • Support the cost of school trips
  • Fund Mathletics - the ever popular maths software that is used in school and can be accessed from home
  • Provide additional resources and equipment

If you would like to get involved in some way, send us suggestions or feedback, please email the PTA: petersfieldpta@hotmail.com.
