Friends of Coldfall (FoC) are the Coldfall school parents and carers association. Our ethos is to provide fun activities while raising funds to support the school and so create a happy, friendly, and inclusive environment. We are a registered Charity and the money we all raise provides funds for school resources that are not met by the London Education Authority. Every parent and carer who has a child at Coldfall is automatically a member of FoC, we have a simple structure; parents, class reps and the committee.
Already for 2020-21 we have allocated £12,144 to lots of much needed equipment and projects, so fundraising is more essential than ever! The work that Friends of Coldfall does adds to the experience of each and every child at the school.
Key events run by Friends of Coldfall are the renowned Fireworks Night and the Winter and Summer Fairs. Other events include a welcome picnic for new Reception families, a Valentines Disco for the children and social nights for parents such as Strictly Come Dancing and Comedy Nights…
Right now many of our events can’t happen but we are still working hard to raise funds. To see all the latest events, products and activities please do visit and register at www.pta-events.co.uk/friendsofcoldfall where you can purchase tickets and much more..
