Friends of Little Kingshill School (FOLKS)

Welcome to Friends of Little Kingshill School (FOLKS) - Your Parent Teacher Association


What is FOLKS about?


FOLKS is Little Kingshill Combined School’s parent teacher association (PTA). As a charity, our key aim is to advance the education of the pupils at our school. We do this by raising money and strengthening the sense of community within the school. 


Who are we?


FOLKS is made up of a core committee of parents and teachers. The current core committee is:

  • Susan Morton – Chair
  • Tania Taylor – Treasurer
  • Kelly Kettlewell – Secretary
  • Jo Knill – Committee member
  • Arlene Lindsay - Committee member
  • Jack Pounder – Committee member and school teacher


We are supported by wonderful class reps and brilliant volunteers without whom we would not be able to function. 


What do we do?


The primary way we support the school is by raising money. We mainly do this by putting together a calendar of events and fundraising activities throughout the school year. This has included quiz nights, movie nights, school discos, Easter trails, fundraising Fridays, bake sales, mufti days, trips to the Panto and to Legoland, and the big summer extravaganza; Festival on the Field!


How does the money we raise help the school?


In the main, PTA funds are for the ‘extras’ not provided by the school budget, to make the learning experiences of the children across the whole school more fulfilling and exciting. As a PTA we want to make sure that what we prioritise our funding on things that are likely to have the biggest educational benefit for the most amount of pupils.


Examples of the sorts of things we have funded include:

  • school workshops (e.g. drumming workshops, theatre workshops)
  • installing the new kitchen
  • extending the Reception outdoor area
  • contributions towards the cost of school trips



FOLKS needs you!


FOLKS can only exist if we have volunteers. Our committee is very small and we rely entirely on the help of others to get involved in running events and activities. We are always looking for an extra pair of hands, whether that be to run a cake stall after school one evening, man the bar at an event, chaperone a school film night, or help to sort our second hand uniform!


If you think that you might be able to support any of our activities (even if you can only give an hour to help set up an event), please contact us at and we can add you to our obligation-free WhatsApp group for parent volunteers. Through this group we put out requests for support, and you can volunteer as and when you are able.


You can also like our Facebook page “Friends of Little Kingshill School’, where you can keep up to date on what we’re up to.
