FOSPA stands for Friends of St Paul’s Association, and is a charitable organisation run by parents. FOSPA encourages all our parents to get involved in organizing social events throughout the year in order to raise essential funds, and foster a sense of community within the school.

It is essential for St Paul’s to have strong fundraising strategies to compensate for the shortfall in statutory funding from Camden. We are one of the least funded schools in the borough.

Consequently one of FOSPA’s aims is to raise money to provide the school with educational and creative activities, equipment and facilities and ensure the children at St. Paul’s get the best possible opportunities during their time here.

In recent years, money provided by FOSPA has provided school outings, i-pads, author and artist visits, and improvements to school facilities.

FOSPA also aims to develop the sense of community both within the school, and with local residents, shops and business. We have a great deal of support from local businesses who regularly offer prizes for raffles and are generously supportive of all our events.

We organise annual social events such as the Christmas Fair and summer barbeque where parents work together to create successful and enjoyable gatherings, and develop the sense of community between parents, children and staff.

Everyone’s time, effort and donations are always gratefully received and thanks go to all the parents who generously help the school provide for our children.

You can get involved with FOSPA by:

  • Attending meetings to bring your ideas and make suggestions.
  • Helping out at events by making food, serving refreshments, running stalls etc.
  • Being on the FOSPA committee. Each year we need a Chair, Vice-Chair, Treasurer and Secretary.
  • Being a class rep. which is a link between FOSPA and your year group, and help to rally support for the various events.

Or you can help raise funds by:

  • Donating money.  If you donate money to FOSPA you can claim Gift Aid as FOSPA is a charity. This provides an extra 26% on top of your donation. Gift Aid forms are available to download or can be obtained from the office.
  • Do your shopping through easyfundraising.
