Friends of Foundry Lane Primary School is a registered charity, run by volunteers, raising money for the school to help with equipment and resources that enrich the children's experience and learning. We do this through running events aimed at bringing the community within school together.
The Covid-19 pandemic has meant that we have had to change the way we fundraise to keep everyone safe. We have, nevertheless, had a very successful Autumn Term and raised approximately £1,500 through our virtual Festive Fayre, non-uniform day, Christmas Card sales, Bauble decorating and our Christmas Raffle.
Yes! We did it!
Thanks to a very generous donation of £4,000 from Christ Church Freemantle, and the hard work of so many volunteers over the last 2 years, we have achieved the £13,000 target to go ahead with the Year R play equipment!
We’re very grateful to all who’ve helped, contributed and supported our fundraising efforts in these difficult times. We continue to fund other resources in the school including books, theatre performances and subsidising class Christmas parties.

It's not too late to do your Christmas shopping!
Decorate a Bauble!
Thank you to everyone who bought baubles and for all the lovely bauble entries. Mr Taylor had difficulty in choosing the winners but we have two from Key Stage 1 and two from Key Stage 2. Congratulations to Karah 2G, Evie 2K, Bella 4TR and George B 6C.

Ribbon cut on Thursday 2nd November 2017
Thank you to everyone that has helped raise money for The Tower. The children were all delighted to play on it after the ribbon was cut. Through the work of the Friends committee and all the children and parents that have supported the events, this has been made possible.
