Friends of Bilton Infant School (FoBIS)

you are automatically a member of FoBIS.
To bring the children of Bilton Infant School and their families together to have some fun.
To raise funds for the school to provide those extras that enrich our children's experiences.
Committee members get together about once or twice per term, to discuss planned events and future fundraising ideas. Everyone is welcome to attend.

There is always something that needs doing and we rely on the support of a wonderful team of helpers to put on our events.
You could help on an event-by-event basis so it's a brilliant way for everyone to get involved.
Events are held during school hours, after school and in the evenings and just 30 minutes of your time would be a real help.
Do you have any specific skills/resources that you could offer for some of our social or fundraising events? Are you a DJ, gardener, amazing face painter for example?
We would love to hear from you!
We support the school by offering preloved uniform through FOBIS and have stalls at various school events.
If you have good quality second hand uniform please consider donating it to FoBIS as it helps us provide an affordable uniform option, saves clothes from landfill and raises money to support the school.
See our Facebook page for more details.
We are developing our Wild Area further!
Having accessed a £9,000 grant to install a gazebo for outdoor learning we are seeking additional funds to help convert the gazebo into an outdoor classroom and develop the rest of the wild area with sensory features to promote wellbeing and support our curriculum.
We also are continuing to raise funds to contribute towards extra learning resources for the school and supporting fun activities for the school community.
Ways to help fundraising
We work with Bag2School to promote reuse of clothes & shoes with who we arrange collection of textiles from school on selected dates over the year. You get to clear out the wardrobe and support the circular economy and the school gets to benefit from funding based on the weight of what’s collected.
You can even help us while shopping!
Every time you shop with one of over 3,600 retailers including Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com, eBay, Boden, and M&S you’ll raise a free donation for Friends of Bilton Infant School. Follow the below link and we can earn £5 bonus contributions.
