Friends of Southbroom Infants’, is better known as FOSI. FOSI is the Parent Staff Association (PSA) for the school and is made up of parent/carer volunteers and staff members.
The committee work to arrange fun events for the children and their families to enjoy whilst raising valuable funds which are spent directly on improving the school, buying additional resources and equipment and added extras that enhance school life and make it an even better place to learn.
In March 2018 FOSI funded a ‘Space Dome’ for the children to experience, they have also recently contributed to the re-development of the outside area attached to the Reception classes, helped to refurbish the new library, bought science equipment and site radios to aid communication throughout the school. Every year we also pay for the coaches to take the whole school to the Pantomime, which is a fabulous way to end the Autumn term.
Every year FOSI organise events such as a Quiz Night, an Easter Bingo, Discos, a Film Night and Summer and Christmas Fairs, amongst other things.
The Committee has 3 named members, who take on specific roles but the supporting members really are what makes FOSI the success that it is. The team behind all events really enable FOSI to turn ideas into reality. Any parent/grandparent/carer is welcome to join the FOSI committee.
We meet around every 6 weeks in the evening. It’s not essential that you attend meetings but it is beneficial (notes are always emailed out to members).
Most events are held after school and there is always an opportunity to help and support in a range of ways, whatever your availability is so it works around you and there is no expectation to help.
FOSI is a registered charity (charity no. 1168179) and once a year we hold an AGM where the named committee members are nominated and voted for. If you would like to become a supporting member or put yourself forward for a named role please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
As of March 2018 the named members are:
- Chair – Hazel Pound (Hazel is a TA at the school and also has a child in year 2).
- Secretary – Sarah Caulfield-Ware (Sarah has 2 children at the school in years 1 and 2).
- Treasurer – Lucie Glander (Lucie has 2 children at the school in years R and 2).
