FOBS is run by a committee of volunteer parents, as well as a teacher representative and our Headteacher.
The committee meet once or twice a term, and plan and run all the events.
Many hours of organisation goes in to our fundraising efforts, and any help is greatly appreciated!
Our main role is to fundraise in order to enhance the provision and educational experience for all pupils.
In addition, we aim to raise the profile of the school and support and involve the school in the community.
As per our constitution we aim to:
We fundraise each year by running events such as a Fireworks Night, a Christmas Fayre, Community Film Nights, Quiz Night, Ice-Cream Fridays, Summer BBQ, School Disco and other family and community social events.
We aim to use any money we raise within the school year so all children who attend BWJS benefit from the money raised.
Money we have raised in recent times has been used to fund after school sports clubs, purchase computers for the children, painting playground markings, purchasing Year 6 keepsake boxes, replanting and repairing the school vegetable and flower garden, £1000 worth of library books, badges for WorldClass and Great Plant Hunt clubs, purchasing digital cameras for each year groups, set, helping with the school pool refurbishment, purchasing class sets of reading books - and lots more.
A big THANK YOU to the school community and BW community who support our events. Each year we raise a significant amount to support BWJS and we couldn't do it without the help of the parents, teachers, governors, FOBS committee and FOBS helpers and the BW community - THANK YOU all!
