Friends of Butts School

Our PTA is known as THE FRIENDS OF THE BUTTS SCHOOL or FOBS. We are a group of parents who organise activities to both raise money and enhance the pupil`s enjoyment of their time at the school.

We have had another successful year. We would like to say a huge 'Thank You' to everyone who has supported all of the activities we have held.

Highlights for us have been the regular Coffee Cafes, Christmas Fair, Discos, Parents Quiz Night and our Sponsored 'Jim Jam Jog'. The money raised from these have enabled us to purchase new picnic benches and play equipment for the adventure playground. We have made contributions towards the new laptops that will be used by classes in the new building and new reading books for the whole school. The KS2 children had a fantastic 'Roaming Robots' experience day and the whole school enjoyed a theatre production.

As we do every year, we have made a contribution towards the costumes for the Christmas productions , SATs breakfasts and the leaving books for our Y6 pupils. Several members of our committee helped serve the children's Christmas lunches where we also provided decorations and crackers.

As always, all of the amazing work that we have been able to do is only possible because of the  backing from everyone connected with the school. We hope that everyone has had fun at our events this year.

Please do get in touch if you would like to join the committee or have any skills that we may be able to use, ideas for activities or fundraising you would like us to consider.
