Friends of Bayford School (FOBS)
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) at Bayford School is called the 'Friends of Bayford School' or more commonly, FOBS. It comprises an enthusiastic group of parents and friends who work to provide social and fund raising functions for the children and families who attend Bayford School. Parents are selected as Class Reps. (2 for each class, 1 per year group) and hold this position for a year.
FOBS and the school staff work closely together to plan and run a programme of fun activities throughout the school year. Some of our annual events include a Christmas Fayre, Quiz night, Family Fun Day in the summer and an after school ice-cream stall! Not only have these events been enjoyable for all participants but they have been very lucrative to the school.
The money raised from these events then goes towards extras for the benefit of everyone at school. In the past, FOBS have purchased computers, colour printers, new tables and chairs, a PA system, a DVD player, outdoor classroom and many other items which have been of great help in building up the resources of our small village school. FOBS also fund the Christmas entertainment for the whole school, which could be a travelling theatre company or a trip to the Pantomime!
An Annual General Meeting is held in the summer of each year. All parents and friends are invited to attend and are welcome to sign up as committee members or helpers for future events. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the school and they will put you in touch with a FOBS member. Thank you.
