Friends of Barmby Moor School (FOBMS)

The principle aim of the Friends is to raise money to buy the extras that the school budget does not support. We do this by organising social events for both children and parents throughout the year. We hope to put together events to suit all tastes and we are always happy to receive your comments and suggestions for the future.

We have supplied play equipment for the adventure playground, subsidised school trips and many other things chosen by the children and staff.

Here are just a few examples:

Trips to the pantomime
Equipment for the adventure playground
Easter egg hunt

There is a huge bank of skills and talent amongst parents, grandparents and carers.

The FOBMS meet about once a term for an hour or so and we always welcome new friends.
