FOTRPS – Friends Of The Radstone Primary School

Better Together

FoTRPS commitment to the improvement of the school is evident and although they are in their infancy they have had huge success in raising funds for vital resources that benefit our children. The unwavering support they provide is crucial as we continue to strive for better facilities and equipment for the education of all our children. Most recently, in response to the challenges our children and families faced due to the pandemic, they organised, funded and delivered Easter Fun Days and the incredible Winter Wonderland experience for the children. This certainly brought some Christmas magic during the most challenging times!

All About Us

FoTRPS is an excellent way to bring together parents, teachers and others to raise money and support the school. It provides the opportunity for everyone to work together towards a common goal. All parents, grandparents, carers, friends and teachers can get involved even if they only have a small amount of time available.

The FoTRPS team is a dedicated group of volunteers that work tirelessly for all the pupils at The Radstone Primary School. Even if you're not able to come to the meetings but would like to help, then please contact us on chair@fotrps.org.uk

Our main objectives are:

  • To raise funds to help the school provide "extras" for the pupils
  • To run social events for parents and children
  • To engage in activities or provide facilities or equipment which support the school

The school will benefit from the additional funds and this will give parents the opportunity to be more involved in their children's school life.

We raise this money through holding various different events throughout the year:

Bingo Nights, MUFTI Days, Quiz Nights, Raffles, Film Nights, Discos and Second-hand Uniform Sales.

We also support school run events, like Sports Days, New Parent's evenings, End of year picnic and much more.

What is a MUFTI day?

MUFTI days are where the children can wear their own clothes (occasionally themed) are a valuable resource for FoTRPS. It gives us the opportunity to gather prizes or gifts that we need for upcoming events.

These events normally generate better sums of money for the school than just asking for a financial donation. For example, in the summer children wear mufti and bring a donation towards the Summer Fair. These are usually small items such as chocolates, bottles of bubble bath, stationery and biscuits. Thank you for your kind donations.
