The Friends of Barford School are an enthusiastic team made up of parents, grandparents and guardians. Our purpose is to provide the pupils of this delightful, village school with those ‘little extras’ that are not readily available within the educational budget and to organise social events for the children, parents and the whole family.
Although always a supportive committee, the Friends of Barford School really came into its own with the launch of the Barford Festival in 2006 which is now an annual show stopper and has become the main fundraising event on the Barford School calendar. However, this doesn’t detract from the committee’s continued efforts in fundraising and social events throughout the year, such as the popular cake and ice cream sales, non-school uniform days, cryptic family quiz sheets, casino nights, ceilidh nights, quiz nights, school discos and more.
We are proud of our efforts, the teamwork and results the Friends of Barford School have achieved. In the past, the children have enjoyed author visits, new playground equipment, new books, coach travel and educational trips, stationery and energy conversion projects which are still ongoing to achieve a ‘greener’ school for the future.
We are a thriving committee with a fun-loving attitude to all our task – after all we’re fundraising for the kids! We meet once a month in the local pub which provides a relaxed, unobtrusive feel to what could be perceived as a ‘starchy’ formal event!
If you would like to find out more or become involved with fundraising for Barford Primary School, we are always happy to accept new recruits.
You do not have to take up a post; just be part of the team – the more the merrier!
Please feel free to speak to one of the committee members on the playground or call the school office on 01603 759660 for the date of the next meeting and simply come along!
