This page contains news and information from the Friends of Burford (FOB), our school’s Parent Teacher Association. Contact us at Fob@burfordschool.co.uk.
FOB organises events to help raise funds for the school and to improve links between staff and parents. You can find our constitution here.
We aim to raise at least £12,500 per year, which helps to fund the school’s IT provision and major projects such as the hall extension, the new music room (2018) and the Reception garden revamp (summer 2019). We are currently raising funds for new AV equipment for the hall and Burford’s exciting new outdoor spaces project.
The easiest way to keep in touch with what’s going on is to join Classlist and also like our Facebook page: Friends of Burford School
Our jam-packed events calendar has something for everyone. We run a number of regular events including the Summer Social and Camping, our bi-annual Winter Banquet which is coming up on 9 November 2019, Kids’ Cinema nights and discos, and Quiz and Comedy nights, but we are always on the lookout for new ideas.
We recognise that parents have busy lives so we want to make it as easy as possible for people to help out, even if you can only spare a couple of hours a year.
You can sign up on our doodle polls to help at individual events. The leader for each event will arrange everything and provide everything you need; by signing up you are just committing to turning up to help.
