Charborough Road Primary School

Friends of School

We are a very friendly, active and supportive group of parents, staff, friends and other family members who organise numerous events – social, fundraising and educational – during the school year, including the Christmas Bazaar and the Summer Fete.

Our main aim is to raise much needed funds for our school and we try to do this by organising family orientated events so that everyone can join in and have fun as well!

Details of all Friends events and options to buy tickets is available on the Friends website at

FOS regularly raise in the region of £9,000 annually, but to do this we REALLY DO NEED parental involvement. Please don’t step back and think ‘someone else will do it’, we actually need YOU. More details on how to get involved and enjoy the events put on can be found on the FOS display board, our regular newsletter and school issued emails.
