Welcome from FODS


FODS is the Friends of Debden School and is a group of mainly parents and family members who organise fun events for the children and fundraise to buy things for school. We meet approximately once every half term to plan events. We usually raise around £4000 each year.

 Things We Do

We organise fun things for the children including movie nights, school discos, cake sales, ice-cream sales and a quiz night for the grown-ups. We also organise a Christmas card art project, Bag2School textile recycling collection, Gift Sale, School Fayres and second hand uniform sales.

 Things we have funded this school year

New iPads, Greek Day experience, mobile planetarium visit, hatching eggs project, skip2bfit skipping equipment, school sign, tag rugby kit, Forest School equipment, cooking ingredients, science week extras, Mathletics subscription.

 Second hand uniform – We have a stock of second hand uniform and we have a sale at parents’ evenings. Contact us with any requests and we can see if we have anything suitable in stock. All items £1.


Did you know that whenever you buy anything online - from your weekly shop to your annual holiday - you could be collecting free donations for Debden Primary Academy?

There are over 3,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation, including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline and Sainsbury's – it doesn't cost you a penny extra!

 It's as easy as 1, 2, 3...

1. Head to and join for free.

2. Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping.

3. After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to your good cause for no extra cost whatsoever!

There are no catches or hidden charges and we are really grateful for your donations.
