Friends of Grange Schools


FOGS - Friends of Grange Schools.

FOGS are a group of volunteer parents who meet regularly on an informal basis to organise fundraising events for the benefit of our children attending both schools.

Our goal is to ensure that money is raised for the benefit of our children attending both schools.

FOGS relies on parents and teachers giving their own free time to help make Grange Infants and Junior Schools a better place for all our children.

Find us on FOGS on Facebook.

Message from FOGS

Dear Parents/Carers,

FOGs have arranged a disco for the children to enjoy on Monday 15th April. There will be a DJ playing music and entertaining the children with party games.

Reception and Year One's will have their disco during the school day, Year Two's will have theirs from 3:15pm-4:15pm.

Tickets are priced at £3.50 per child, this includes:

  • A non uniform day
  • Disco Fun & Games
  • Unlimited squash/water
  • Snacks
  • Prizes for the games

Please follow the link to book your child's ticket

https://www.pta-events.co.uk/friendsofgrangeschools/index.cfm?event=event&eventId=77374

If your child does not wish to attend the disco, then they will be entertained by the class teachers, with non school related activities. Your child is still welcome to come in non school uniform, even if they're not attending the Disco, you can pay via the link above.

If you're able to be a parent volunteer on the day or you have any questions, please do let us know via emailing us on [email protected]

Richard James Valentines Competition

A huge thank you to all the children who took part in this colouring competition. The entries were very creative, artistic and colourful. Members from FOGs presented prizes to the winners who were Joey, Paige and Hermione in a school assembly. All the entries will be on display in the window of Richard James Estate Agents over the February half term holiday.
