FOKS – Friends of Knebworth School Association

FOKS (Friends of Knebworth School Association registered charity 1052984) was formed many years ago to raise vital funds for the benefit of all pupils at Knebworth Primary School.  FOKS plays an important role in bringing together staff at the school, parents, pupils and members of the local community in order to raise funds to enhance the learning experience and opportunities for all pupils.

The FOKS team is composed of parents and grandparents alongside members of staff from the school all who possess a variety of skill sets.  The FOKS team help us to organise and run events and we are always looking for new volunteers in FOKS.  FOKS is a great way to get to know the school community and any time you can provide would be greatly appreciated whether it’s helping for an hour or so at events or taking on a role in our committee.  Even if you only have a small amount of time available, it really can make a difference and we would love to welcome you to the FOKS team.

During the academic year, FOKS organise many fun, social events for the pupils, their families, and the wider community.  Past events include an annual Gala day in the summer, a Christmas Fair, film nights for the children and quiz nights for the adults!  FOKS work in close partnership with the school to provide finances for enrichment activities and equipment.  Most recently FOKS have pledged £2000 towards swimming costs and over £3000 towards the Sports Partnership scheme which allows pupils to participate in a wide variety of sports festivals against other schools.  Furthermore, FOKS have donated generously so that the school was able to update the reading books in EYFS and KS1 as well as purchase new and much needed IT equipment.  FOKS is a well-loved part of our school community and we look forward to welcoming our school community to upcoming events.
