FOTB

Welcome to Parents and Friends of Tithe Barn School.

FOTB (as we are usually known) is the Parent/Teachers Association which supports the life and work of the school through volunteering and raising funds for key priorities with the children. FOTB is run on a voluntary basis by parents/guardians/carers of children in the school and by school staff.

All parents, carers, guardians and staff are automatically members of FOTB and are welcome to attend meetings as and when they can make it.

FOTB is a registered charity  and works solely to raise funds for Tithe Barn School, co ordinating fun fundraising activities and working in areas where an extra pair of hands is needed, like gardening in our allotments!! The funds that are raised are used to purchase additional resources which we could not afford to buy from the Schools budget and make the world of difference to our childrens’ learning environment.

To raise these much needed funds we need the support of everyone who is part of the Tithe Barn community, future, present, past pupils, parents, grandparents and family are all welcome to join in. Whether you can help with time,making and baking,donating resources or money (which is always welcome and can be gift aided to make it go even further!!), or just coming along, joining in and enjoying,as they say every little helps. So if you have an idea or an hour to spare we always need volunteers, you don’t need to commit a lot of time and we always have fun!!  please contact the school office with your contact details.

A little help makes a huge difference!!

July FOTB

Friends of Tithe Barn Summer Fayre

We are absolutely delighted to report that our Summer Fair raised a whopping £3,250, dwarfing last years’ total and smashing the £3K mark which I don’t think has been done for many years!! Thanks again to everybody that donated, helped out and flashed their cash on the day, we hope you had fun!

Mrs. Muncaster is a lady with big plans for Tithe Barn and she is happy for us to share with you her priority for our fundraising as quickly as possible – interactive, touch screen whiteboards in every classroom, just like in our Reception classroom and thus building on the ipads and ipad minis across the school that FOTB has already supported. This technology will have a massive impact on our children’s learning and as each class gets theirs you’ll be able to see exactly where your money is being spent and
how it will benefit your kids.

More details to follow from school but in the mean time, let’s hope the weather is kind to us again for the Family Festival on the afternoon of Saturday 24th September – with another record fund raising event we could have the first couple of whiteboards installed in school before we know it…..
