Friends of Pangbourne Primary School (FOPPS) is a PTA (Parent Teacher Association) which raises money to buy equipment and learning resources, and offer new experiences to all children at the school.
We also run major events for the local community, bringing people together to have fun and raise money for a good cause.
Over the years we have raised thousands of pounds and paid for a huge range of things including:
A new minibus
A new library
Coaches for school trips
A bike shed and shelter
Interactive white boards
You can now buy anything through Amazon Smile and 0.5% can go to FOPPS 🙂
Our main fundraising events are: Pangbourne Fireworks Fiesta, Pangbourne 10k, and the BBQ and bottle tombola at the Village Fete.
For pupils and parents at the school, we run cake sales, Christmas crafts, raffles, “Sunshine Fridays” Ice Cream sales, and lots of other fun events. We also hold social events so parents and children can get to know each other better, and offer second-hand uniform for sale as well as clothing recycling.

FOPPS is made up is made up of Committee Officers, and anyone who comes to a meeting is a Committee Member. All parents and guardians are automatically part of FOPPS, and we welcome anyone in the local area who would like to support our school.
All you need to do to get involved is come along to a meeting. The dates of the meetings will be notified by email and advertised at the school. You may then like to volunteer at one of our events or suggest a new idea – we’d love to hear from you.
