FOGs

Parent & Teacher Association, also known as Friends of Glusburn school (FOGs).

FOGS is a collective name for all parents and school staff who help to raise money for the school, as a parent of a child at Glusburn School you are a member of FOGS (PTA) Congratulations!

A representative group of parents and staff meet several times a year to organise events and we are very grateful to those who give up their time in this way. We do realise that many parents do not have time to commit to attending meetings but WE NEED YOUR HELP in other ways, we just ask if you could support the school by giving up an hour once or twice a year to help events run smoothly. This might include manning the tombola, serving tea, selling raffle tickets or even being one of Santa’s little helpers!
