Friends of Eagle School

… or 'FOES' for short !

Just a quick reminder and introduction for new parents to Eagle School as to who and what FOES (Friends of Eagle School) is …

Eagle Primary School has been based in the village for over 150 years and is a well respected and successful educational environment for children in the local area.  As school budgets are evermore being squeezed, Friends of Eagle School (FOES) are a team of volunteer parents who help with the fundraising for the school, whether formally or informally to help achieve new equipment or experiences for the children. 

Working closely with the teachers and governors, FOES raises money each year to pay for many important things such as children’s trips, school bags, PE kit bags, end of term awards and prizes and larger projects for the direct benefit of the children. For example, over the last two years we have donated over £7,200 to the school to help with the refurbishment of the school toilets and provided some fun new outdoor play equipment and seating for all the children to use. We have also provided the school this year with new books and new library facilities.  We were also able to send all the school children to the Theatre Royal in Lincoln to see the Christmas Pantomime, provide Halloween parties and discos, Mothers and Fathers’ Day gift making sessions, Easter Bingo and host successful Christmas and Summer Fayres. In 2013 we launched our “Cupertino Café” which provides children and parents yummy homemade cakes and drinks every Friday in the summer term out on the Playing field and a chance to chat and play after school whilst fundraising at the same time.

This year our fundraising efforts are going towards some more outdoor equipment and storage for the school. In addition we are also giving each Class Teacher £200 as the start of our new Class Enterprise Scheme.  Teachers can ask for this money over the academic year to help purchase extra items to support the children’s projects and learning. All these things will benefit every child in school now and of course leave a wonderful legacy for all the children in the future.

FOES is a relatively small team of enthusiastic parents. Our purpose is to provide the pupils of our delightful village school with those ‘little extras’. We try to put the "FUN" into fund raising

So what’s involved …?  We meet around six times a year for an hour or so, mainly to discuss and organise forthcoming events/activities. We also talk about new and exciting ideas on how to raise funds and decide what our fundraising focus will be.  The meetings are very informal and usually take place after school drop off at 9am in the staff room over a cup of tea or coffee.

We also have Friends of FOES who help by providing a helping hand at our larger events.  So if you are interested in joining this group, we would love to hear from you.
