Friends of Barkway and Barley Schools (FOBBS) is a group of parents, teachers and friends of the school who form a committee which meets to support, fundraise and organise activities that benefit the education and wellbeing of the children that attend Barley and Barkway School.
How to get Involved
To get involved, all you need to do is speak with Mrs Sharon Brown to indicate your interest. We always welcome new helpers. If you choose to become a committee member, you will attend FOBBS meetings. For particular fundraising events, such as the Barley Ball. You do not have to be a committee member to help with FOBBS and you will be very welcome. Over the course of the school year, FOBBS usually meet once every half term as an entire committee, including our Annual General Meeting.
How FOBBS uses the Money it Raises
The money raised by FOBS is used to support the education and social wellbeing of the children at Barkway and Barley School. The funds we raise are intended to cover the costs of facilities and resources that are not provided from statutory funding, such as coach hire costs, competition prizes, educational field trips, special equipment and more. Recently, we have provided funding for the supply of additional violins for music lessons, a new sand pit for Early Years and a set of phonics books for the school.
