Hello, and welcome to FOBS - 'Friends Of Belmont School', formerly known as the PTFA.


We want to build on the amazing contribution made by the PTFA over the past few years and this is your opportunity to get involved - join the FOBS! Children are only at school for a relatively short time. FOBS events such as the Summer Fayre will be remembered fondly by them for a lifetime. Help us to continue to create lasting memories for our children.


Being a member of FOBS also means that you will have the opportunity to help your child/children’s education. Through previous fund raising activities we have been able to refurbish the library which is being enjoyed by all the children in the school and buy a much needed new stage which was used at the recent KS2 Music Celebration. Our next fundraising project is for outdoor exercise equipment which will encourage children to be more active during break times and promote a healthy lifestyle.


Who can join the FOBS?

Mums, Dads, Grandparents or even friends of family whose child/children attend our school.


How can you help or contribute?

Help plan an event     Run a raffle     Design posters/leaflets     Serve food or drinks

Run stalls at events     Help set up and clear away

Wrap presents     Work with the School Council

Give ideas for events and on what the FOBS could fund

And much much more


As a member of FOBS you don’t have to attend all of our meetings if you are too busy or working; all we ask for is your ideas and support throughout the year. Even if you only have a small amount of time to spare, your help would be greatly appreciated.


Getting involved with FOBS is so easy, just visit the school office and leave your contact details and someone will get back to you.


If you work for a company or have your own business that might be able to support the FOBS please do let us know.
