Introduction to FOBS

We are fortunate at our school to have The Friends of Barkston School (FOBS). It has been an integral part of the school community for many years. In its time FOBS has raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education experience and the school’s facilities. FOBS is about much more than simply fundraising.  We exist to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available. 


With the continued support of parents, staff, and family members we can make a difference. During each term you will receive letters and notes from us in your child’s book bag or via email. Please come along to our fundraising events it is a good way to meet other parents and help us raise money. It may seem we ask for your help on many occasions but remember every penny we raise goes directly back into providing equipment and fun activities for your children.


We always welcome new faces and new ideas at our committee meetings. Why not come along, no pressure to be on the committee. 


If you are interested in  FOBS but are unable to give your time to our meetings, we also welcome casual help at the events we organise.


We look forward to meeting you in the future.
