Friends of Bishop's Waltham Junior School (FOBS)

Welcome to the vibrant world of FOBS, where parents, teachers, and the school community come together to create a positive impact on Bishop's Waltham Junior School. FOBS, short for Friends of Bishop's Waltham Junior School, is a dedicated committee of volunteer parents, a teacher representative, and our Headteacher.


Who Are FOBS?

FOBS is driven by a passionate committee that meets once or twice a term to plan and execute a variety of events. These events play a crucial role in enhancing the provision and educational experience for all pupils at Bishop's Waltham Junior School. The hard work and dedication of our volunteers ensure the success of these fundraising efforts.


What Do FOBS Do?

Our primary mission is to raise funds that directly benefit our school and its students. Additionally, we aim to boost the school's profile and strengthen its ties with the community. As outlined in our constitution, our objectives include:

  1. Developing extended relationships between staff, parents, and the wider school community.
  2. Engaging in activities that support the school and enrich the education of its pupils.
  3. Providing or assisting in the provision of facilities or educational items (beyond statutory funds) as determined by the Committee in consultation with the Governing Body.

We accomplish our fundraising goals by organizing various events throughout the year, including but not limited to:

  • Fireworks Night
  • Christmas Fayre
  • Community Film Nights
  • Quiz Night
  • Ice-Cream Fridays
  • Summer BBQ
  • School Disco
  • Family and community social events

We aim to allocate the funds raised within the same school year, ensuring that all children at BWJS can benefit from these contributions.

In recent times, FOBS' fundraising efforts have supported a wide range of initiatives, including after-school sports clubs, computer purchases, playground markings, keepsake boxes for Year 6 students, school garden enhancements, library book acquisitions, club badges, digital cameras for each year group, school pool refurbishments, and class sets of reading books, among many others.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the entire school and BW community for their unwavering support of our events. Each year, our collective efforts make a significant difference to BWJS, and we couldn't do it without the contributions of parents, teachers, governors, FOBS committee members, FOBS helpers, and the broader BW community. THANK YOU all!
