Friends of Selwyn School

Welcome to The Friends of Selwyn School (FOSS)


Every parent, carer and member of staff at the school is automatically a member of the association (which is informally known as FOSS or the PTA) and your friends and family are welcome to join too.  We hope that during your child’s time with the school you will enjoy being part of our community, attend our events and hopefully support FOSS and our fundraising efforts


The Friends of Selwyn School (FOSS) is a registered charity and exists to enhance the education of the children.  We raise money to help fund activities, facilities and equipment and run fun events to help develop relationships between school and home.


Please follow The Friends of Selwyn School (FOSS) on Facebook to hear all about our upcoming events


More information on how FOSS plan to support the school in 2019.20 can be found here:

Contributing to the school through FOSS


If you are unable to attend FOSS events but would like to contribute towards our fundraising efforts, we are pleased to announce that as a registered charity, we are able to accept one off or regular donations.


These can be made via online banking, with the payment going straight into the Friends of Selwyn School’s bank account, or as a cash or cheque donation which can be given in at the school office in an envelope marked for “The Treasurer of FOSS”.


Boost your donation! If you are a UK taxpayer, you can boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate as we can reclaim Gift Aid from the Government - we just ask that you complete a very simple form which we can email to you or you can collect from the school office.  Donations can of course, be made anonymously if you prefer.

Selwyn primary school is operated by Arbor Academy Trust, a charitable company limited by guarantee and registered in England and Wales with company number 10234376. The registered office is at Arbor Academy Trust, Davies Lane primary school, Davies Lane, Leytonstone E11 3DR
