Friends of Oxford Spires Academy, known as FOSA, is an active parents and friends association who organise activities, provide catering for school events and fundraise for additional equipment to enhance pupils’ school experience. We also act as a link between school and parents with either the Principal or Chair of Governors attending meetings. Recent sessions have covered school finances, uniform, coping with challenging behaviour, catering, and more. We offer a pool of collective experience and there will always be time at meetings to ask questions and discuss issues. We run special events to be social and to fundraise. For example, to welcome parents of Year 7 pupils, a Christmas social, Quiz and Curry night etc.
Friends of Oxford Spires Academy (FOSA), raises money for the school, and is now set up as a Cause on https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk.
You can in turn raise money for FOSA every time you shop online with an associated supplier, at no cost to yourself.
Just register on https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk and enter Friends of Oxford Spires Academy as your Cause, and then every time you shop online, visit https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk and go to the supplier’s website from there. EasyFundrasing will then donate money to FOSA, which benefits your child.
In recent years we funded three outdoor table tennis tables, plus bats and balls, which are very well used by pupils and staff alike. We have also brought mirrors for the dance studio. We have a number of requests for funding coming in each year and are working with the school on prioritising these and also ensuring pupils have a say in what is bought for them.
One of the main ways we raise funds is through selling refreshments at events such as open evening/morning, House Drama and the pantomime performance. Volunteers are always welcome! Events are discussed at meetings and rotas are organised.
Whether you are a new or returning parent, we hope you’ll find the FOSA (Friends of Oxford Spires Academy) events and meetings useful, interesting and friendly.
