Friends of Middle Barton School (FOMBS)
We would like to introduce you to Friends of Middle Barton School (FOMBS). We are the PTFA (parents, teachers and friends association) who organise fundraising events over the school year to raise money for Middle Barton School.
Our aim is to raise £7000 a year to spend on improving and enriching the experience of students at Middle Barton School. In recent years we have used this money towards a variety of things such as the new running track, building of an outdoor classroom, updating the reading book collection and funding activities at the school enrichment days. We also pay for book bags for the new Acorns class and contribute to the year 6 leavers hoodies.
Prior to the pandemic we managed to raise much more than the £7000 target, however, over the past few years fundraising has been very difficult and last year we only raised around £2000. We really hope, with things getting back to normal, this will change and we can go back to holding all our regular events, raising lots of money for the students at the school!
We are a small, friendly group and are always looking for new members to join us. We meet a couple of times a term, the meetings are very relaxed and usually involve a few drinks! We all have other significant responsibilities and do as much or as little as we are able to-there is no pressure! With a few members of this already small group likely to leave in coming years, as their children go to secondary school, we really do need new members to be able to continue. If you would be interested in joining us or would just like to help plan an event our contact details are below. It is a good way to meet other families at the school and we would love to welcome you.
