Friends of Yarrells School
Who are Friends Of Yarrells (FOYS)…
Friends of Yarrells (FOYS) is a friendly group of parents who run fun, social and memorable events as well as raise funds to put back into the school and enrich our children’s learning and experiences. On joining Yarrells, you automatically become a member of FOYS.
Our structure recognises that people want to be involved but not necessarily have a ‘formal’ Committee role:
- Core team of around 7, meeting 6 x per year;
- Year Reps (2 per year group) who help with communication and events, when possible;
- ‘FOYS Helpers’ parents, grand- parents, friends and ex-Yarrells
For all parents and extended families of children at Yarrells to feel part of a welcoming, inclusive and active School community that really makes a difference.
To provide fun and memorable events for the children, parents, staff and friends of Yarrells Preparatory School.
Through funds raised at our events we are able to provide Yarrells School with an annual budget to enrich the children’s learning within the curriculum and contribute to larger ‘partnerships projects’ to enhance and improve facilities to contribute to a better learning experience.
