FOBS Latest News


Applications for the next FOBS lottery are now being accepted. The lottery is our most effective fund raiser – it really takes just 5 minutes of your time to fill out an application form and pop it in an envelope with a cheque. Why not buy more than one number – one for each child; grandma; grandad……..anyone and everyone! You can buy as many numbers as you like (each number is entered in 10 monthly draws for a total cost of £10), and the more numbers that are sold, the more money we raise and the more prize money we give away. There were 150 numbers in the 2016/17 draws. That raised £750 for the school and generated £750 prize money. Can you help us make the magic 200 numbers this year? Don’t miss out – apply now.


Our AGM will be held on Tuesday 19th September at 6.30 pm in the Community Learning Centre. All parents are welcome and if you’d like to join us either on the Committee or as a helper, we’d love to see you there. In particular, we are looking for somebody to shadow our current Treasurer with a view to taking on the role from September 2018, when they will be leaving the Committee.

How is the money we've raised being spent?

After streamlining the process for departmental applications for funding, FOBS are pleased to announce we’ve just approved funds to support projects for Music, English, Technology, PSHE and PE departments as well as providing funds to provide resources to support the visit of a children’s author to the Learning Resource Centre. We are also working to secure a grant for the Community Development team to bring inspirational guest speakers into school. More details will be available in the autumn.

This has only been possible thanks to your continued donations and support. Remember that if you are unable to attend any of our events, you can donate by standing order or through Tucasi (FOBS should appear in the Trips and Events section – if you can’t see us, please e-mail We are actively seeking other projects to support and have been working to simplify the application process for subject leaders.  Updates will be provided on this page when we have news to report.
