About FOPS

The Friends Of Paddox School (FOPS for short) are the Paddox Primary P.T.A. We are a group of mums, dads and teachers who work together to organise social and fundraising events throughout the year.  We aim to put on fun events for children and parents whilst also raising money for the school.  FOPS also provides an opportunity to meet other parents who are able to give a bit of their time to helping their children's school.

All parents are automatically members of the P.T.A., and we always welcome new parents to join in. Any help you can give will be appreciated. Please see the FOPs calendar online, or the school newsletter for upcoming events and meetings.

The money we raise goes towards making our children’s time at the school that much more enriching. Big things and small, they all make a difference. In the last year we've provided:
A Science dome:- £1,570
Early Years Foundation Stage learning sheds:- £2,469
6 air conditioning units:-       £2,388
Coach travel on school trips:- £1,500
Currently, the plan is to pay for a new PA system. All the money is a product of your help and generosity. So thank you all! This is what we've raised recently:
Last May's film night:-  £432.33
Playground tuckshops:- £92.48
Summer disco tuck shop:- £82.30
Summer celebration:-  £2,452
Summer raffle:-       £683.36
Christmas shopping night:- £573
Christmas Fayre:- £1415
Quiz Night:- £204
If you have any thoughts or ideas about FOPs activities, please send them over. You can email us anytime at, or you're very welcome to come along to our meetings. They're held monthly, usually at 7 o'clock on a Monday. The date for the next one is on the Friends of Paddox School Calendar webpage, in the News & Letters section.
The next upcoming events are the Autumn discos on November 6th.
