As a registered charity, our aim is to raise funds for the school by organising and running events. Monies raised through these events are then used to purchase and fund items throughout the school in order to benefit all year groups in one way or another- either by contributing towards school trips and theme visitors, providing play or PE equipment and kits, educational resources such as library books, maths equipment, or specialised resources such as SEN equipment.


There is a list of items that FOBS commit to the school every year (see left). Other purchases are decided by regular meetings of the committee and Mr. Cooil who approves and puts forward the school requests. Agreed purchases are then made and the school reimbursed for any costs that FOBS have agreed to pay.


The items that FOBS provide have become vital as government budgets have been cut over recent years and it is now more than important than ever that FOBS is supported as a necessary part of the school for both pupils and parents.


Below is a small selection of items that were funded in the 2015/16 academic year - please do note that this expenditure is less than previous years due to saving monies for the outdoor classroom:


Zany Zebra £500 (Whole school)

Boogie Box £200 (Whole school)

Maths Equipment £500

Music Equipment £100

Mud kitchen and rain suits (Year R)

Global Rock Challenge £450 (KS2)
