About FODS

The Friends of Dysart School (FODS) is Dysart School’s fundraising and parent support group.  Its mission is to advance the education of the pupils of Dysart School and to promote and protect the physical and mental health of children with disabilities and their carers.  This will include, in particular but not exclusively, providing facilities or equipment that supports the school and developing effective relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school.

Visit the FODS Facebook page:


FODS has been effective at fundraising in recent years and made significant contributions for the purchase of two new minibuses and a sensory garden.  FODS is looking to build on this success by engaging the local community further and planning some fun events.
