Joining the Friends of Cookley School (FOCS) is a great way of meeting parents beyond your child’s year group and contributing to wider school life.  So please come and join us anytime....


Come and help us organise some fun and exciting fundraising events — come along to our  meetings if you can — they are held in school on Wednesdays or Thursdays either straight after drop off at 9.00 am or at 2.00pm   If meetings aren't your thing or you aren't able to attend, you can help in many other ways on stalls, setting up for events, creating new games for our fairs, helping make things, letting us know your fundraising ideas — any contribution you can make will be gratefully received!  Look out for details of our next meetings on our noticeboard, the School newsletter or ask to go on our email mailing list...

Fundraising so far...

From monies raised, we have been able to  buy the Christmas gift books and Year 6 leavers books.  We have bought lots of items for the children to play with during breaks,  circus skills equipment,  hoola-hoops, skipping ropes, Jenga, and paid for the fabulous benches and sandpits in the playground.  We still have money set aside for playground markings, so we are good to go as soon as the playground is ready.


Thanks again for all of your support and we hope to see you soon.
