The Friends of Buckland Newton School (FBNS)
The Friends of Buckland Newton CE Primary School (FBNS) is an essential part of our school. All parents, carers and teachers of the school are automatically members and everyone’s contribution is highly-valued. The work of the FBNS underpins the whole school, providing financial support which enables us to create a richer learning environment for our children.
FBNS is about much more than simply fundraising but exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents, children and friends together socially.
We always spend our funds in ways that will benefit all the children across many areas of the school and curriculum. With the exception of large projects, the money is spent swiftly to ensure the children feel the immediate benefit.
Examples of spend include:
Books, coaches for school trips, sports kit, art equipment, class grants, Ragbag – clothing recycling scheme, leavers’ hoodies and pantomime trips.
