Friends of New Siblands (FONSS)

The Friends of New Siblands School (FONSS)  is a registered charity which is an entirely voluntary organisation supporting the education of the pupils at New Siblands School. 

We are led by Sophie, Nic and Debbie in the roles of Chair, Vice Chair and Treasurer.  Alice Walton is our teacher representative. 

Anyone associated with the school is automatically considered a ‘friend’ but we welcome people to take a more active role in our organisation. Regular volunteers are parents of pupils both past and present, and as well as members of the community who want to give us their time. 

Our vision is to cultivate a vibrant and strong community spirit and there is abundant evidence of this at our events.  Our main events each year are the Summer Fayre and Yule Fayre which are always well attended and hugely successful.. 

We run smaller events through the year too such as the Mother’s Day shop and Father’s Day shop and sometimes organise Singing Hands concerts. 


Through previous fundraising efforts, we have managed to provide the school with playground equipment and gazebos for outdoor learning, Eyegaze technology, new library furniture, iPads for each classroom and sensory equipment. 

At Christmas we donated money to each class to buy themselves a present and during lockdown we funded an online Singing Hands concert. 

We would love for you to join us, everyone is welcome. Please come and say hello!
