Welcome to the FOGOS homepage!

FOGOS is Great Ouseburn School’s parent teacher association. We are a committee of volunteers who, with staff, parents’ and wider community support, organise the events throughout the year to raise essential funds for school equipment, educational trips and learning resources.

In 2015-16, thanks to everyone’s generosity FOGOS events raised £7,000 and this money has gone towards:

  • Playground equipment and markings
  • Renovating and upgrading the school entrance and classrooms
  • Phonics packages, new books and development toys
  • Bus journeys for school trips
