FOBS

We are Barton School FOBS (Friends of Barton School).

 

We are a group of parents who want to see that our children have the best and most enjoyable time possible whilst at school. We achieve this by raising money to provide all the extra educational items that statutory school funds cannot supply.

 

WE NEED YOU! We are always looking for new members to join the committee. We need inspiration, a 'can do' attitude, a smiley face and above all, we need enthusiasm and a willingness to join in and get involved. The committee needs a range of skills. We work as a team, so if you are outgoing or would prefer to be behind the scenes, there is always something you can do or help us with. Our focus is to maximise our fundraising capabilities, but have fun whilst getting to know fellow parents at the same time.

 

The commitment that is required is:

  • attending regular meetings (i.e. once a half term) and being willing to take on an area of responsibility, especially when putting on events;
  • liaising with the school staff and classes.
