Our aim is to raise money, to enable the school to provide the pupils with resources and experiences that wouldn't ordinarily be funded by the Local Authority. The FRSA was founded by a Learning Support Assistant, Joan Robertson and the late Diane Reed.We hope the events that we organise foster extended relationships between the staff and parents, and that the activities we are able to fund advance the education of pupils attending Rockbeare School. Membership of the FRSA consists of all the parents of current pupils, teachers and friends of the school.We hold a minimum of one meeting per term, and everyone is welcome to come.

Wonderful Wednesday with Devon Wildlife Trust was a great success with over 30 children enjoying a butterfly and bug hunt in the village field. FRSA sold ice lollies which were very popular and everyone enjoyed a play in the park together!
The Rockbeare Robin Trail was a huge success!
We raised around £200 for the FRSA! Everyone enjoyed finding their decorated robin, the crafts organised by the Messy Church team, and the festive cafe and crafts in the village hall. Huge thanks to all who helped the children create their robins, the Rockbeare Village Hall committee for their support and for decorating the hall so beautifully, Rev Lane and all at the church for hosting our robins and running such lovely crafts, and to all who helped and took part!
On Sunday, the FRSA organised a trip to Pennywell for over 60 people! This raised around £30 for the FRSA.
The day included a journey on the 'Candy Cane Train' and a visit to Father Christmas and his elves!
Children from school took part in the live nativity and even got to hold a lamb!
The Paint Splat workshops run by Kristina from Little Science Lab raised over £200 for FRSA. Everyone had a fantastic time creating their mini explosions and decorating their bags!
The fruit cups and refreshments made a fantastic £90 at sports day, huge thanks to all those who supported the stall.
Our final Wonderful Wednesday was a huge success with Devon Wildlife Trust's brilliant big hunt proving popular. A huge thanks to all who have joined in with our afterschool sessions and helped the children to have so much fun!
Our third 'Wonderful Wednesday' was a great success with lots of fun in the park, some beautiful decorated stones created for our #rockbearerocks project, and lots of lollies sold.
Please do come and join us for our last session next Wednesday with an activity session led by Devon Wildlife Trust.
We had a fantastic time at the second 'Wonderful Wednesday' with lots of children taking up part in the craft activities on offer and everyone enjoying a treat and a play!
Our first 'Wonderful Wednesday' was a great success with lots of families joining us to play in Rockbeare Park after school and enjoying a welcome ice lolly in the lovely sunshine.
The second event will take place this week with the village hall open for a drop in craft session (all welcome).
The last session in June, on 27th, will be run by Devon Wildlife Trust with a wildlife activity to tie in with Rockbeare School’s participation in #30dayswild.
All are welcome, parents to remain for all activities, all funds raised will go towards FRSA and playgroup.
