Friends of BCPS

Our Core Mission

The Friends of BCPS (FOBS) is an inclusive voluntary group, made up of parents and teachers who work together to organise a variety of fundraising events for our School. The mission of The Friends of BCPS is to provide the opportunity to raise money to help fund the 'extras' that the school would not otherwise be able to provide.

Although 2020-21 has been a challenging year and we have not been able to hold any big contact events, we have been trying to raise funds by holding online and in-school events to provide the school with equipment as well as emergency support funds such as the laptops for remote learning.

We hope that as covid restrictions lift we can hold more events in the coming terms. Thank you so much for your warm and continuous support.


Please keep an eye on our newsletters and reminders that are sent from the school office, also check our Friends of BCPS Facebook page for upcoming events.

The money raised through FOBS is spent on the following items each year, which we call the ‘Core Offer’.



In addition to our core offer, in recent years we have contributed to the purchase of: school library books, sensory equipment, picnic benches, craft supplies, school laptops and playground markings.
