​​​​​​​​​FrOGS is the parents' organisation, and does a great deal of excellent work to support the school. All parents are automatically members of FrOGS. Meetings are held in the school's staffroom about once a month and everyone is welcome to attend. It is intended that meetings are informal but business like.



This year's BBQ was a very busy event with lots of parents and families out to enjoy themselves and the rain managed to hold off! During the event pupils from Year 4 ran stalls with games devised by the younger classes and the Country Dance group performed a wide range of dances, including one with audience participation! We were fortunate to have the involvement of Ilminster Football Club and music was provided by the Gibbins family who entertained the crowds all evening. Our thanks go to all who volunteered and the many local businesses who donate raffle prizes. Overall the event raised over £2,600 to fund projects for the pupils.                   



Next Meeting:

FROGS AGM minutes 17th September 2018.pdf

There are a wide range of activities run by FrOGS to raise money and provide enjoyable events for both parents and children. It also supports a wide range of school events. These include:- 
  • an annual barbecue
  • regular quizzes
  • sponsored events
  • Christmas hamper raffle
  • refreshments at sports day


FrOGS is always looking for additional volunteers and helpers. If you can help, please get in touch!
Each year, FrOGS raises a great deal of money to help with providing extras for the school. Without their work the children would not have such a good environment to work and play in, or have such good resources.
The most recent purchases are £3000 spent on fiction books and £750 spent on samba drums. The children will get great benefit from both.
Below are some examples of how FrOGS has helped in recent years.
  Over £9000 worth of books for the school's library and book corners in classrooms. This means that children have more, better quality reading books inspiring them to read and enjoy it.
Games for children to play in classrooms during 'wet plays'. The children really enjoy playing these board games etc when it is too wet to get outside at playtime.  
  This is the log cabin in the garden area of the school. This was funded entirely by FrOGS and complements our excellent outdoor learning facilites really well.
Likewise, our pond area and garden have all benefited from FrOGS input. We now have a lovely natural area where children can enjoy learning and 'being'.  
FrOGS has supported the running of the school swimming pool for many years. This is a costly matter and not undertaken lightly, but is a wonderful resource for the children, who normally swim twice a week between April and October.
The pool is recently undergone major repair work and is now being used by the children. It is available for hire to parents and organisations. To find out more visit the Swimming Pool page.
Stage blocks. These versatile and and adaptable stage blocks have been really well used since given to the school. The children love to perform on them.
