  • Provide a support network between parents
  • Promote the family feel of the school and link in with the wider community

Fund Raising

May Fair

Despite the showers…we raised a fabulous £1800 at this year’s May Fair – Thank you! Whilst the weather tried to dampen spirits, your support shone through! The monies raised mean that we can replace the roof on the outdoor classroom.

And another thank you…
You raised a brilliant £296 from the Bags-to-school collection

Christmas Fair

We are really pleased to announce that the Christmas Fair and the selling of all the Christmas gift items raised a whopping £780 for school!  Thank you so much to everybody who helped out, and all of you who came along and supported the day. Below are a few pictures from the day, taken by Mr Pollard.

Last year FOBS donated a massive £10,500 to the school:

£ 9,730   towards ‘The Big Build’
£480 for panto bus
£170 for hot chocolates & milkshakes
£120 for YR 6 leavers gifts

Thank you to everyone who donated, volunteered, made cakes, ran stalls, etc.  We couldn’t have done it without you.

This year our fundraising  target is £10,000.

Money raised will go towards replacement of the Trim Trail, repair of the outdoor class room roof, and equipment/storage for Reception’s Outdoor play area.

We are in the process of applying for a £5000 community grant from Aviva Insurance, for the Trim Trail Replacement.  To be in with a chance to win we need your votes between 21st October -  18th November.

Please vote using this link:
