Due to the restrictions of social distancing FOSP are regrettably unable to put on events that bring our community together in the usual way. We have been thinking of new ways to raise funds in order to continue to support the school with projects new and ongoing (supporting IT provision, staffing of outdoor activities, the library system, contribution to Christmas lunches, £100 to each class teacher for resources of their choice, Year 6 Leavers books).
We hope you will show your support for our new internal lottery - The FOSP Dream Draw.
£1 per entry it will be drawn monthly by the staff and pupils during whole school assembly via Teams on a Monday (around the middle of the month). 50% of income will go towards school projects 50% on cash prizes. (30% 1st prize, 15% 2nd prize, 5% 3rd prize).
If the school is closed the draw will be conducted on Zoom with at least 4 members of the FOSP committee in attendance. Any entrant can attend the Zoom draw on request.
There will be 10 draws on the following dates:
19th October (entry paid by 14th) 18th January (entry paid by 13th)
16th November (entry paid by 11th) 22nd February (entry paid by 12th)
14th December (entry paid by 9th) 22nd March (entry paid by 17th)
18th January (entry paid by 13th)
22nd February (entry paid by 12th)
22nd March (entry paid by 17th)
19th April (entry paid by 9th)
17th May (entry paid by 12th)
14th June (entry paid by 9th)
12th July (entry paid by 7th)
The draw will be open to staff, family and friends of the school community. Participants can enter multiple times.
Ideally to reduce admin we would greatly appreciate entry to the school year’s 10 draws in a single Bacs payment of £10 to the FOSP account but alternatively standing orders of £1 per month can be made. Please advise if you can only pay by cash and we will make arrangements for COVID secure collection. Payments for entry must be received by 5pm on the day that has been designated as the payment deadline.
Once you have expressed your interest in entering the draw you will be messaged the FOSP bank account details and a reference to use on your BACS payment. Each entrant will be given a number to allow for anonymity if requested.
New entries will be accepted throughout the year according to the rules but refunds of prepaid entries will not be given. Winners will be notified ASAP and payments made by BACS wherever possible and cash in the exception.

Thank you as always for your support. We look forward to the time we can offer more interactive events, hoping you are safe and well.
