FODSA (Friends of Drayton School Association)
Welcome to the FODSA page!
FODSA is the parent teacher association of Drayton School. The object of the association is to assist in the education of the pupils of the school by helping to provide money and items which the school budget cannot cover in full.
We organise a wide range of activities such as cake sales, non-uniform days, Bags2School, summer fete, pamper night, Christmas hour, various discos and the much loved chocolate hour.
In order for FODSA to continue to operate we do need the support of all parents. Most of the events we organise are well attended but the organisation of them is easier if more parents are involved. We usually hold one meeting per term where we discuss the organisation of events and how the money we have raised should be spent (in consultation with the head teacher and teaching staff).
It would be great to see some new faces at our meetings we always need new ideas and inspiration. If you wish to get in touch, please email us at email@example.com or visit our Facebook page FODSA (Friends Of Drayton School Association) Abingdon

New Books for the Library - February 2022!
We have received £1700 worth of brand new library books for the librarians to stamp, sort and place in our school library for all the children to access. These books were funded from the proceeds raised for our staff half marathon held in Dec 2020, but due to covid we delayed the purchase until children could fully use the library . Thank you to our whole school community who supported this FODSA event.
Santa Fun Run - January 2022
Once again thank you to our school community who helped raised £1389.50 supporting our Santa Fun Run and through the sales of our santa hats and head boppers.
