Why do we have ‘Friends of East Claydon C of E School’ (FOECS)?
We are very fortunate at our school to have the Friends who are, and have been, such an integral part of our school community. Over the years Friends have raised thousands of pounds which has been used to enhance the experiences the children have at the school and as the government tighten the purse strings, schools are relying more heavily on their PTA’s.
All parents, members of the school community and stakeholders can get involved if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available. Every parent/guardian at the school is automatically a member as soon as their child starts pre-school/school.
Links with the local community
Over time we have developed strong links with the local community and are always well supported by both residents and businesses, for which we are very grateful.
