Welcome to Friends of Sebert Wood School (FOSWS) page!

Operating as usual


We're still looking for a small chest freezer that we can use at the summer fair for ice cream and ice lollies and to be able to run some Frozen Fridays again. If you have anything please let us know, share this post in the hope we can get something. Thank you.


FOSWS are in need of a small chest freezer if anyone has one that needs a new home??


Thank you to everyone that joined us at the annual quiz night, we hope you all had a great time. We'll add up the figures and announce the amount raised soon.

Special thanks to Stem Catering that provided us with the tasty food.


We have 4 spaces remaining for the quiz night.

If you'd like to enter a team please let us know asap to [email protected]

Come and join for some great food and a fun evening.


🪩The school disco tuck shop is back! 🪩

A reminder that children in years 3,4,5 and 6 can buy snacks at tomorrow’s disco.
Please don’t send them with any notes, a couple of pounds is plenty!

🪩 Don't forget payment for the disco needs to be returned to school by this Friday 1st March.🪩



Quiz entry sheets will hopefully be sent out tomorrow via email from school. If you'd like the form before this please email us at [email protected] and we'll get it over to you.

Teams are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.

Any questions let us know at [email protected]


Don't forget we have our cake sale and pre loved uniform in the school playground after school today.

Unfortunately we haven't had a huge amount of cake donations so cakes will be limited. We do however have some ice creams too. We don't want any left over so please come along. All priced at 50p.

If anyone else still wishes to donate you can bring along at pick up.

Many Thanks


🧁 Reminder that we have our cake sale on Friday in the school playground. We can't wait to see what bakes are made. A nice little treat to start the school holidays! 🧁

Our pre loved uniform will also be on sale if you need any replacements or top ups.

Shop bought cakes are also welcome. All donations must be nut free.

Thank you


🧁Friday 16th February sees the return of the cake sale. We haven't done one after school for quite some time so hope it comes back with a bang! Donations are open to all year groups and can be dropped at the front of school on the Friday morning. Please ensure they are Nut free. Shop bought donations are also welcome. 🧁

Along side this we will have a pre loved uniform should you be needing a top up!

Any questions please let us know. [email protected]


Who would like to see the quiz night return in 2024?

We had some fantastic entries in for the cake competition. The prizes will make their way back to the children in class today. We've added some pictures below of some of the entries.

We had a huge amount of unclaimed raffle prizes. All winners were noted and hopefully these will be sent home with the children today. Some will need to be collected from the office as they are too big for the children to carry. We hope you all enjoy them!


Where do we start?

Thank you all for coming this evening, we know it got a little crowded at times but feel it was the best decision to move in given the cold temperature.

We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did hosting it for you. Once again we pretty much sold out Oh Yeah Sweets , it's great to also be able to support a small local independent business.

To all the volunteers, tonight wouldn't have happened with our you. It means everything!

We hope it's made the start of the festive season for you all. We might have one more fun activity before the end of the year! Keep a look out!

❗Due to the cold weather forecast we have made the decision to move the Christmas Fair inside. We love being outside and love the festive feel but given the cold temperatures feel it is the right decision. We'll be in the main building in the Hall, library and Yr2 and Yr3 bases. The Grotto will remain outside in the pavillion. Be sure to pop in and grab a hot chocolate before heading out. Due to not getting access to some areas until 3:30pm we won't be able to open the doors until 3:45pm so please bare with us. We are working hard on getting the changes in place.❗

We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

Final preparation is going into the fair this Friday. Below is a list of the things going on and hope to run. Sebert singers will be singing some Christmas carols at the start followed by guitar club performing their first "gig" 🎸

We look forward to seeing you for what will be a wonderful evening. We'll have some hot chocolates / Bailey's hot chocolate to keep you warm!

We have some fantastic raffle prizes up for grabs on Friday. Along with the fantastic hampers, which are all looking amazing. We have two tickets for the panto at the theatre royal, Bury St Edmunds and a day out at Jimmy's farm amongst many more! Tickets can be returned to school with payment and will be available to purchase on the evening.


We are excited to announce that after a succsessful summer Fayre Oh Yeah Sweets will be back for the Christmas Fair. Treats for on the night or even some stocking fillers! We can't wait to see her.


🍰 Following the success of the cake competition at the summer fayre we thought we'd run another for Christmas. They'll be prizes to be won. We look forward to seeing your bakes. 🍰

Cakes can be dropped off at the front of the school in the morning. Any boxes left can be collected from the cake stall on the evening or will be sent back to classes on the Monday so please make sure they are clearly labelled.


🎄We are still in need of volunteers for the Christmas Fair on Friday 1st. If you can spare half and hour or more then please follow the links in the comments below. The Christmas fair takes up a huge amount of resources and we'd be sad if we had to scale it back or have to merge things together which will result in long queues. Please come and help us. Any questions then please let us know. 🎄

🎅WOW, you guys are seriously the best. We've increased the slots this year by an extra 30 and after the first day we only have 7 slots remaining. Our fantastic volunteers will be at the front of the school tomorrow morning in case anyone would like the last few slots. This will be on a first come first serve basis. We will no longer be there at pick as we anticipate all slots will have been filled. 🎅

✨Hampers✨ We've put together a few ideas of items that you can add to the class hampers. These are just ideas, and you can donate other ideas. We haven't done one for food and drink, any items for these are gratefully received. We ask that all items are unopened and in date. This can be returned to your class by Monday 27th when the children will put them all together to be raffled at the fair. Any questions let us know. We'll pop what year group is collecting what in the comments below.

Thank you!


🎄🎅 Grotto tickets will be on sale at the front of the school tomorrow morning and at pick up. They will also be available Wednesday morning. These are sold on a first come first serve basis at £2.50 each. 🎅🎄



Now we're into November we are fully focussed on our Christmas Fayre of which is fast approaching. As per last year we are on the look out for someone who wouldn't mind kindly taking on the most important job of the evening and being our Father Christmas.

We'll supply the suit and the hot drinks. If you think you've got what it takes then send us an email to [email protected]

We can't wait to see your CV's 😜🎄🎅


Date for the diary!

Friday 1st December, Sebertwood Christmas Fayre.


Thank you so much for all your orders so far. Just a reminder that today is the LAST DAY to order! Our online shop will close at midnight tonight. Don’t miss out! There is still time to get codes for misplaced parent order cards. Please contact the office if you need these. Thank you for all your support!


Don't forget to get your orders in for Christmas cards or merchandise. 30% of all sales go back to the school. 🎄🎁🎅


We hope everyone had a wonderful time at the discos. We saw lots of dancing and smiling faces!

UPDATE: Purse has been found. We had a Ecuador wallet misplaced during the year 5 / 6 disco. If anyone finds it or was picked up accidentally please can you hand it to the office on Monday.

As always, thank you to all the parent volunteers, we couldn't do it without you!

Thank you

The FOSWS Team.


The FOSWS team are looking forward to Friday. The school disco is always a great event enjoyed by the children.

For years 3-6 please see the pricing of the tuck shop below. £2 will be more than enough, maybe too much! Drinks will be included throughout.

We kindly ask for change to be bought and no notes.

Any questions let us know!
