Friends of Coaley School (FOCS)

Coaley C of E Primary Academy is well supported by a very active "Friends" group. 

The Friends of Coaley School (FOCS) was formed with the dual aim of providing close liaison between parents and school and of raising funds to buy extra items of school equipment. Every parent of a child at school is automatically part of the Friends group.

It is very well supported, and the parents involved have, over the years, put in a great deal of effort to both increase parent/school understanding and raising money.

A whole range of events have raised thousands of pounds for use throughout the school. The biggest event is CoaleyFest, held each June. 

FOCS has donated money to buy 20 i-Pads, protective cases and a secure storage/charging trolley. This resource has been invaluable to the learning of all pupils in the school. Most recenty FOCS have contributed a substantial amount toward a new playground for the children to enjoy.

The creation of a school allotment by FOCS has transformed an area of the school grounds and allowed the children to develop their gardening skills and their knowledge of healthy eating. There are further plans to extend this area into a 'Spiritual Garden' where children can grow things, marvel and reflect in peace.

Please come along and support FOCS, they raise an amazing amount of money which goes directly to all of the children at Coaley. New parents are always welcome.
