 Who are Friends of Simon de Senlis?

Friends of Simon de Senlis (FoSDS) is a volunteer group made up of parents, school staff and community friends who are passionate about supporting the school and raising additional funds to make a difference for our children.

We help develop and maintain closer links between the school, the parents and the community and organise a number of fun events throughout the school year, such as film nights, school discos, fun runs, quiz nights for parents and the Summer Fete.

Money Raised

The money that we raise helps with providing our children with equipment and/or supplies that aren’t included in the school budget. Most recently:

  • Book bags and water bottles for Reception pupils
  • Resources for forest school
  • Refurbishing and stocking the school library

To provide us with more fundraising opportunities, Friends of Simon de Senlis is a registered charity - No: 1056298. As a result this means that as well has having volunteers we also have committee members who are dedicated to ensuring that all monies raised are spent well.

How you can make a difference

We welcome any support however big or small. The amount of time you donate and the number of activities you help with is completely up to you. Whether it’s half an hour or a full event - the choice is yours. Some examples might be:

  • Suggesting fundraising ideas
  • Donations / Sponsorship
  • Taking part in event planning
  • Wrapping prizes
  • Preparing and/or running the stalls at the Summer fete
  • Volunteering at the school disco’s
  • Serving tea and coffee at school functions

Year Group Facebook Pages.

Each year group has its own Facebook page. It is a chance to ask questions, communicate with other parents in your child’s year, organise socials and to forward messages from the school or Friends of Simon de Senlis.

These groups are managed by members of FoSDS and will be a more informal and speedy way to exchange information and give handy reminders about school and fundraising events. However, please note that you should contact the school direct if you have any worries or concerns, and not use social websites to air any grievances.

If you would like to join the Facebook groups for your child/children’s year group(s) please search for the appropriate group and request to join.
