The Friends of Uley School (FUS) is an association of parents and teachers, working together to support the school through a wide range of fundraising and social activities. The FUS provides a well balanced programme of activities, both fund raising and social. They raise funds for the extras the children enjoy throughout the year . They also help to fund various trips, purchases and activities that go to make the childrens' learning experience all the richer. Activities to raise money have included fun runs, cake stalls, school disco, Christmas fair, Pantomime,BBQs and summer fete.
All parents of children at Uley, automatically become members of the FUS and are very welcome to attend meetings and get involved in work as much or as little as they are able. Meetings are held monthly, and the Annual General Meeting is held in the Autumn Term when new officers are elected and a new committee is formed.
The Friends of Uley School has been set up on a great website where you can raise funds when you shop at hundreds of commonly used retailers including Tesco, M & S, Amazon, Next and John Lewis. Just use the links provided on the easyfundraising website whenever you make a purchase and up to 15% of the price will be donated to any good cause you choose to nominate - at no additional cost to you! 'Easyfundraising.org.uk' also features 'Easysearch.org.uk' - search the web with easysearch instead of any other search engine and you will also raise more funds for the FUS with every search you make. Both websites are completely free to use and if you select 'The Friends of Uley School (FUS) - Gloucestershire' when you register as the cause you wish to support, you will help us to raise much needed funds.
