Friends of Balliol (PTA)

Friends of Balliol (FOB) is a voluntary independent charity, made up of an elected mixture of parents, staff and members of the community. Its purpose is to support the school, supporting the facilities provided by the Local Authority to advance the education of the children, through a strong partnership with the school itself. We do this by fostering close co-operation and communication among parents, staff and others associated with the school, extending our relationship, and engaging in activities that support the school. FOB play an important role within the school and local community with activities centred on fundraising and communication. As well as raising money for new toys and resources, we also make significant contributions to make school trips more affordable to families. FOB are always seeking volunteers to help with activities and welcome parents, staff and members of the community at out half termly meetings. If you would like any other information regarding FOB, would like to become a member or have any suggestions about fund raising (or where the money might be spent), please do not hesitate to contact any of the committee or alternatively drop a note into the school office for the attention of FOB ideas.
