FOLSS (Friends of Leonard Stanley School) are a PTFA and registered charity run by a dedicated team of volunteers, who give up their time for free to fundraise for the benefit of the children at Leonard Stanley C of E (Aided) Primary School.

We actively fundraise to provide play and school equipment, pay towards school trips, solely fund the school swimming pool and put on events for parents and children throughout the year.

We were founded in 2002 and we have grown to become a real financial asset to the school, and we are continuing to raise more money year on year, which is a credit to all of you who donate your valuable time and money to our organisation. All this is achieved by participating in the many varied events we run and projects we manage. We have a core of committee members and volunteers who make up FOLSS.

Annually we have to find £5,000 to pay for the baseline funding needs of the school (PGL coaches, running the school swimming pool etc). Details of which can be found in the 'What we Fund' section of our website. Any additional funding we raise then goes to help support 'funding requests' applied for by staff via our Funding Request Application Process.

We are always looking for volunteers who can be parents, guardians, relatives, residents in the local area or businesses who can give up a small amount of time to help prepare and run events or who can donate raffle prizes, equipment etc. Please go to our 'How you can help' pages for more information on how you can become involved
