Friends of Thakeham School (FOTs)

We are the fundraising group for our wonderful little school and can be contacted on: 


We are made up of a group of parents and teachers  – And EVERYONE is welcome to our meetings, the more the merrier! Keep an eye out for the next date in the school newsletter and the WhatsApp class groups.


In 2018 we became a registered charity and in previous years (Pre-COVID!) we have through various events raised funds to support the school and help subsidise larger projects.


Donations from FOTS have included funds towards The Sun canopies, the bike and scooter park, the mindfulness garden, Chromebook purchases and currently we are focusing on the ‘Golden mile’ running track planned for installation in the next year.


We also support the children as much as possible with everyday resources, book purchases and class ‘treats’ like popcorn and drinks for in class movies and now we are allowed again, school discos, movie nights and other child focused events will be planned in.


An easy way to support FOTS with no cost to you, is through Amazon Smile 


Follow this link and choose Thakeham Primary as your chosen charity, then every time you shop with Amazon they will automatically donate 0.5% of the net purchase price of eligible purchases to the school.
