FOSS Committee

We are always looking to increase participation from our volunteer network, to bring new insights, energy and fun to the team.

The PTA’s success relies on your continual help and support!

There are a variety of ways you can help and be involved – from event planning, helping with communications – promoting events, designing a poster – to helping out on the day at our events. Giving up some of your time to help the PTA is invaluable.

We are also looking for volunteers who work for an organisation that may be able to sponsor an event or provide matched funding. Please do let us know if you can help us.

Please don’t think you need to be involved with all PTA activities and every event, you can pick and choose what fits around your commitments. All offers of help are always greatly appreciated.

Please come and have a chat with one of our committee members and discuss how you may be able to help or please contact us at


S Armitage

Mrs Sarah Armitage - Co-Chair


I became Co-Chair of FOSS when the PTA was re-launched in 2016 when my daughter was in Year 2. I enjoy organising and running fundraising events which raise vital funds for the benefit of all the children at Shelley First School.

I am a working mum but think it's important to support the school as much as I can. Over the past 3 years FOSS has become more established and increased the amount of money we have raised. We are only limited by our numbers and so we are keen to welcome new members to help contribute to our future success.


V Garrard

  Mrs Vicky Garrard - Co-Chair

Along with Sarah, I became co-chair when the PTA formed in 2016, when my son was in year 4 and my daughter was in year 2. 

As a parent, I recognised the need to support schools in fundraising and organising events for the children, and I have enjoyed being a part of this. I recently completed a degree to become a teacher and now see first hand how vital the work we do is, especially as schools budgets continue to decrease. 

We have worked hard to raise money for the school, especially with our limited numbers. We eagerly welcome parents to join us in supporting our future events and hope to continue to develop our ideas, becoming more successful each year.  


 D Sutton

 Mrs Debi Sutton - Treasurer

I joined the PTA at the re-launch in October 2016 to help raise funds that are not covered by the curriculum, and to support the school, staff and teachers who do so much for our children. 

I am a working mum and a parent volunteer.  I have had three children attend Shelley. My youngest is in Reception class.

I really enjoy helping out with the children, their faces when they are happy is just priceless.
