Friends of Oldfield (FOA)
Who are the (F.O.A.)?
A group of people including parents, teachers and friends of the school who help to organise events, both fund raising and social.
What are the aims of The Friends Of Oldfield?
Our mission is ‘To bring together children, school and families to help make memories’.
We raise funds to buy things that will benefit the children, that the school could not otherwise afford, to organise social events for children for parents and their friend and to foster community relationships at Oldfield Primary School. Anyone who has children at the school or who works at the school is automatically a member of the PTFA.
How can we find out more?
Each year there is an Annual General Meeting to which all parents and staff are invited. This is a good way of meeting people for the first time and hearing about the F.O.A. achievements and plans.
Planning & Organisation
In the informal atmosphere, the committee openly discuss activities and generate new ideas. It is at these committee meetings that school projects are considered with a view to F.O.A. Funding. In joining the committee, this is your opportunity to have your say. Committee meetings generally start at 9am and last for just one hour. They are usually held in the practical room every 5 or 6 weeks through school terms. Newcomers will be made most welcome.
How to contact our F.O.A.
The easiest way to contact us is to leave a message with the school Office and a FOA member will contact you.
Fund Raising Events
Over the years the generosity of all those associated with Oldfield School has enabled the F.O.A. to donate many thousands of pounds to worthy projects. People have been very creative in coming up with new ideas to run alongside the tried and trusted events. We have a friendly relaxed approach to our meetings and welcome anyone to come along to see for themselves.

Oldfield Primary School F.O.A. has a remarkable record when it comes to fund raising.
