For those of you who don’t know PaFoS is Shaw’s PTA and our main aim, as well as helping the children and parents to have lots of fun, is to raise valuable funds for our school.

After a fantastic first term (Sep-Dec 16)  fundraising we are now starting the process of getting the new shelter in the school playground which has been our core focus since joining. This should be complete by May 2017.

£1500 Community Grant Success! 


After lots of hard work we are delighted to announce PaFoS have been given a Community Area Grant from the Melksham Area Board. The Area Board considered our grant application at its meeting on 16th November and awarded us £1500!!! This is a massive help towards delivering an outdoor shelter that not only benefits the school but the wider community who regularly use the hall.

PaFoS has partnered up with a number of local estate agents who will donate a percentage of their commission to the school if the house sale goes through. So if you or anyone you know is thinking of selling their house anytime soon please consider using Lock & Key or Hunter French.  If you do please let a member of PaFoS know and also be sure to tell the estate agent you want to be a part of this scheme – thank you so much.
