Friends of Layston School (FOLS)

Our FOLS (formerly known as the PTA) is a very important part of our school. It is a friendly fundraising group who meet approximately once a month. The group is made up of parents and members of staff, although carers and grandparents are welcome to join too. Although it can be hard work, being a member of FOLS is rewarding, fun and can be a great way to meet other parents and support the school. We are a registered charity no. 1140983.

We have raised funds to purchase new iPads so that the whole class can access one individually and we are also going to put funds towards updating the library. During Covid, we also funded fun events such as Santa’s reindeer visit at Christmas and a Summer Petting Zoo. We are continuing to fund workshops and have previously had a planetarium, circus workshops, drummers and storytellers and various other performers over the last few years.

If you would like to know more about FOLS, have any ideas for fundraising events or ideas for items you think FOLS may be interested in purchasing, then please leave details with the school office. You can contact any member of FOLS through the school office.
