The PTA at Barrow Primary School
Friends of Barrow School (FOBS)
Welcome to Barrow School and FOBS. We are a fund raising organisation run by the parents and supporters of Barrow school to support the teachers in their endeavours to give our children the very best education possible. As a parent of a child at Barrow School, you are already a member of the FOBS team. A PTA at Barrow School can be traced back some 30 years and several thousands of pounds have been raised to enrich learning and support the school throughout the years.
We plan and arrange events with the aim of raising money for much needed equipment and activities, which in the past have included items such as staging, Activity Days, play equipment and funding towards our own swimming pool upkeep. We strive to make our fundraising enjoyable for all the children and their families, and our events are designed to make sure everyone has a great time! From family bingo, Christmas parties, and sponsored swims to cake sales and pancake day yumminess, a good time is always had by all, and although the primary focus is to raise much needed funds, the social nature of the events also serve to strengthen the important links between the school and the community.
You can keep up to date with our activities on our Facebook page: Barrow CEVC Primary School FOBS Group (Friends of Barrow School)
