About FOAC

Our schools parent, teacher and friends association is known as FOAC (Friend’s of Avanti Court). They meet on a regular basis and support the school by organising events, coffee meetings, fundraising money and providing a link between parents, teachers, children and the local community.

We aim to raise the profile of the school within the local community and work together with all parents, teachers and governors.

We aim to work jointly with the school in order to ensure that the funds raised go towards resources to enrich our children’s learning environments.
