(Friends of Shade Parents and Teachers Association)

FOSPTA is a small group of parents with children currently at Shade School.
We aim to raise funds that will directly benefit the children of this school through a variety of events.
Parents can get involved in a variety of ways. We have parents who attend the meetings to share ideas as well as parents who help out with specialist activities and events.

Meetings are held regularly throughout the year usually linked to specific events. Everyone is welcome to attend, keep a look out for text messages for the next meeting dates and times.

If you would like to get involved with FOSPTA, contact us via email or by leaving your name and contact details with the school office.

 Our main fundraising focus is to help the school create a new Nature Garden. Visit the Nature Garden page to find out about the latest developments.
