Raising money for our children

Welcome to The Friends of Ivy Chimneys School (aka FoICS)! We are the PTA for Ivy Chimneys Primary School in Epping, Essex. Our aim is to raise money to improve the education and wellbeing of all our children. And we like to foster a community spirit while we’re at it! We’d love for you to help and get involved – the more, the merrier!

Follow us on social media and email admin@ivychimneys.net to ask to be added to our Parentmails (due to GDPR the school needs separate consent).
