Friends of Ditcheat School(FoDS) is our school association consisting of parents, staff and friends from the local community. FoDS works very closely with the school to enrich the children's experiences by funding visits within the local area and further afield; paying for visitors to come into school to perform or work with the children; buying equipment for learning and play, and organising and supporting a number of social occasions throughout the year, such as the Christmas lunch, Christmas disco, Easter bingo and summer fair.

Over the last year or so, FoDS have funded two very large projects - paying for the installation of the tyre park and all-weather safety surface underneath, and buying over 20 iPads for use across the school - as well as supporting a number of class trips which have enabled us to keep costs to parents to a minimum.


This year FoDS are paying for the children to watch a pantomime at the village hall, as part of their Christmas activities.

FoDS are also are planning to raise money to help move our school kitchen. This will provide a larger working space for staff to prepare meals and also provide an area where children can learn how to prepare and cook food.

This is an exciting and ambitious project for which FoDS have already started to raise money. Please speak to a member of our office staff if you would like to get involved and they will direct you to one of the FoDS team.
