Who we are

Started in April 2013, the Friends Of Seal (FOS) is our PTA. FOS can be made up of parents/carers, teachers, family members and anyone in the wider local community who would like to get involved with the school. Primarily an events/fundraising group, FOS is also an essential link between the school and the community we serve. 

FOS to became a registered charity in 2014, which enables us to have a separate charity bank account  for all funds raised by FOS.  The benefits for FOS to be a registered charity are amongst other things:
- eligible to receive charitable donations from local and national companies
- eligible to apply to grant-making charitable trusts
- eligible to receive donations from parents and other supporters
- eligible for payroll giving and company matched giving schemes
- eligible to apply for Gift Aid
- promotes the message that FOS is working for the benefit of others
- establishes a clear set of rules by which FOS operates

If you would like to get involved to volunteer for an event or have a skill you can bring to the team then please leave your details with the Welcome Office using the contact details at the top of this page. 

The current FOS committee was set in April 2018 with additional members coopted in the following week. The FOS constitution can be found here, and the signed copy is stored with the school office. The AGM usually occurs during the Spring term when we have fewer events to organize, and is often combined with a Bingo event open to all.
