The Friends of Buckland Newton School (FBNS)
The Friends of Buckland Newton 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 all areas of the school and curriculum. With the exception of large projects, the money is spent quickly to ensure the children feel the benefit.
Examples of spend include:
Books, Coaches for school trips, Sports kit, Art equipment, Class Grants – £100 per class each term, Ragbag – clothing recycling scheme, Leavers Hoodies and Pantomime trips.
Emma Carroll – Chair
Natalie Cash – Secretary
Nina Thompson – Treasurer
