FOBs is the PTA of our school, organising fun events for pupils and their families to raise much-needed, much –appreciated funds.
Our events take place throughout the year and range from major fundraisers, such as our twice-yearly fayres, to smaller events such as discos for all pupils and Bingo evenings for all the family.
Funds raised are used for both large and small projects. Our most recent major project has been the refurbishment of the Foundation Stage outside play area. We have co-funded the resurfacing of the playground, the provision of a canopy to enable all year outdoor play and purchased purpose built resources to enhance the children’s learning through play.
Over the last few years, items we have purchased include new desks and chairs for three classrooms, bookcases, books, sports equipment – from football pumps to football socks – and we frequently respond to requests from staff for everyday items, such as craft resources.

Could you spare the time to volunteer?
We are always delighted to see new faces and hear new ideas. Details of our meetings can be found from the online weekly newsletter. Everyone is most welcome to come and join us. Whether we are funding equipment or experiences, our goal is to enhance our children’s learning during their time at Berkswich School.
