Welcome to the Friends of Stakesby School (FOSS)

FOSS is the Parent and Teacher Association (PTA) for Stakesby School. Any member of the school's community can join this group to support us in fundraising and supporting the learning that takes place in school.

FOSS is always on the look out for more volunteers! If you think you would like to become a 'Friend', please speak to Mrs Wood or Mrs Harrison in the office.

Since September 2014 we have had many exciting events for the children, parents and the community.

  • Movie Nights
  • Discos
  • Ladies' Night
  • Quiz Night
  • Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

After our very successful Ladies' Night we were able to purchase a new outdoor sandpit for the Early Years Unit.

Following discussions with pupils, on what they would like for school, they said they would like a portable oven.  The money raised enabled us to buy two ovens to use around school to promote baking with the children.

When a drone visited Stakesby!

Paul from YorkshireDroneServices.com recently visited Stakesby with his drone to take some images of the children spelling out the word 'GOOD' in celebration of our recent Ofsted success. Year 5 used problem solving techniques in a maths lesson to work out the area that the children had to stand in and how the children and letters would be arranged. A huge 'Thank You' to Paul for his services and patience and keep an eye out in the Whitby Gazette for the images!
