Introducing Friends of Fishergate

Who are FoF?

Click to find Friends of Fishergate on Facebook!

Friends of Fishergate (FoF) is a registered charity group for Fishergate Primary School. A small committee group is supported by a wide and varied group of adults with school connections, who help out whenever they can, to plan & organise events, generously give their time and ultimately support the school by attending & participating in the events.

Friendly and informal meetings are open to all and held regularly each term. The dates for FoF meetings and events are included in the school calendar.

What does FoF do?

FoF brings together the parents, carers, family members and teachers of the children in our school and helps to create our inclusive community. Regular fundraising events and projects through the year are very sociable and are enjoyed by the children and their families, alike. The funds raised each year go directly to the school to further the enrichment of our children’s learning journeys, often in the form of equipment, tools, treats and subsidising trips, experiences and more.

Reasons to get involved

Friends always look to warmly encourage new and existing families to get involved, welcoming fresh ideas, wider skill sets and experience from all. There is always a positive team spirit, a strong sense of achievement and bonding at each of our events. Above all else it is a great way to get to know other families in the school, make new friends and reinforce the school community.
