If children are to be successful learners, they need to feel happy and secure within the school environment. A child’s personal development can best be fostered through an active home-school partnership,based on mutual care and understanding.
FOSBS has been fundraising for new playground equipment for the last 18 months and the equipment is due to be installed at Easter at a cost of £20,000. With events that are planned and some generous donation/grants, FOSBS hope to have raised £13,500 for the playground by the end of this academic year. This leaves £6,500 outstanding to be raised next year. The new playground will include:
- 2 Play Huts (£3,500 each)
- A Pergola and Stage (£3,000)
- A log Nest (£2,500)
- Maze Seating (£600)
- 2 Chalk Boards (£300)
- Wooden Stilts (£300)
To help reach our target sooner FOSBS are offering the opportunity to individuals or companies to sponsor part (or all) of a piece of the new playground equipment. Donations will be acknowledged:
- Up to £100 on a plaque or certificate in the school reception area
- Over £100 and up to £300 on a plaque in the new playground
- Over £300 an individual plaque on a piece of equipment.

FRIENDS OF SUTTON BENGER SCHOOL ('FoSBS')
(PRONOUNCED FOZBIZ OR FOZBEES)
What is FoSBS?
It is our version of a parent teacher association (PTA). It is a group, mainly of parents, who help to generate funds for the school to enhance our children’s education. We raise the money and then get to choose how we spend that money. We organise the Christmas and Summer Fayres, coffee mornings and other fundraising and social events.
We have purchased entirely or contributed to buying books, sports, play and kitchen equipment, hanging baskets, computers, gazebos and buildings over the last few years. We do all those extra nice bits that help make this school a great place for our children.
Who can be on it?
Any parent or teacher who wants to be more involved in supporting the school this way can join in. Come to a meeting and see what you think.
.............Or just get involved by supporting the events, the coffee mornings, and raffles for example.
.............Or volunteer to help run a stall at the Fayres.
.............Do as much or as little as you like. Just ask any Committee member or designated Class Rep for information.
