What are we raising money for?

In 2016 FOBA raised the money to resurface the front trim trail play area and  install some new toadstool seating.  

 

In 2015 FOBA raised money towards our fantastic playground markings in both the big and small playgrounds.  For 2014, FOBA helped to provide new and stimulating book corners in each of the classrooms.  Each class was given £250 to redecorate their area, furnish it and add a selection of lovely new books.  

 

In 2013, FOBA donated money towards our woodland regeneration project.  The woodland provides shade, seating and additional play facilities for the children, as well as encouraging wildlife back into the space.

 

In 2012, FOBA paid for each class to have a set of brand new cameras and in 2011, FOBA donated money towards the cost of installing the climbing frame in the playground.
