The Friends Association of Barford School (FABS) are holding their annual Bonfire and Fireworks event on November 10th and are looking for donations of wood for the fire. We do not have capacity for storage ahead of the event but we may be able to collect on either Friday 9th or Saturday 10th November.

We are looking for solid wood rather than chipboard or other manufactured types of wood as these can give off noxious fumes. We do particularly like wooden pallets or old wooden doors (fittings removed)! If you do have any wood for the community event, then please call Colette Long on 624373 or 07748 933098.

Friends Association of Barford School (FABS)

The aim of FABS is to help the school as much as possible by raising funds to purchase educational resources. The FABS committee is made up from a group of parents giving whatever time they can spare to organise fund raising events for the school. All parents automatically become members upon their children starting at the school, and are welcome to attend any FABS meetings.

FABS organise a variety of events during the school year. The money they raise is used to provide resources or exciting opportunities for all of the pupils in school.  It was decided many years ago that we would use the money so it would impact on every child in the school rather than being distributed towards individual classes and this works very well.

Below is an example of some of the items FABS have purchased:-

- 20 chrome books (Tablets)
- 10 iPads
- 6 Kindles
- 20 Laptops
- 2 computer storage cabinets
- Assessment books across the whole school in reading, spelling, grammar, maths and science
- Reading books for KS1
- Coach travel for the Pantomime and school trips
- Treats at Christmas
- Christmas entertainment for Pre-School, Reception and KS1
- Interactive Whiteboards in some of the classes
- Contributions towards the astro turf on the front play ground
- Flip video cameras
- A camera for each classroom
- Role Play Equipment for the Early Years

This is just in the past few years. As you can see it makes a huge difference to the resources for our children and as a school it makes us quite unique.
