FOSNS (Friends of St Nicholas’ Primary School) supports our school with fundraising and community-building activities. All parents/carers of pupils at St Nick’s and staff are automatically members of FOSNS and everyone is encouraged to join in and help contribute towards the wellbeing of children at the school.

A FOSNS Committee is elected every year and holds meetings on a regular basis with everyone welcome to attend. FOSNS meetings and events are advertised via Parentmail.
