Friends of Ide School

All parents automatically belong to our active parent association - Friends of Ide School (FIS). Through FIS, parents help the school in many ways, not least through the fundraising committee that organises events to raise money for special purchases. FIS is a registered charity - Charity Number 1098614

We organise the Summer Fete, Christmas Fete, Easter Discos, Cake sales, Ice-cream Fridays, Christmas cards and  school calendars, as well as raising funds for a wide range of projects.
