Welcome to Friends of Kirkby Thore School.


FOKTs is a vital instrument in raising funds for the school to enhance our children's extra curricular experiences even further. All parents are invited and welcome to join our meetings and to help run events. The FOKTs committee, as detailed below, coordinate the meetings and liaise with school to ensure the smooth running of events, and to collate ideas about how to spend the money. You can find out more information about upcoming events on our Facebook page.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Chocolate Bingo at the end of last term. We raised an amazing £483.41.


Don't forget to join us for 'Time for Tea' on the 1st Tuesday of every Month at the Memorial Hall. 



What are we raising money for? 

Every year some of the money we raise pays for the whole school to go to the pantomime. This has proven to be a great experience for all of the children and one we plan to continue. 


We are currently raising money to purchase new benches for the children to sit on at play times. 


Our next meeting is on 14th June at 3.30pm in the School Hall. Please feel free to attend and share your ideas for both events and what you would like to see the money spent on. We look forward to seeing you there. 

We welcome children from the term after they turn 3 for up to 30 hours a week. Explore our website for more information or email
