A partnership with parents that strives to enhance student learning and enrich the lives of the students within Bidbury Infant School.
Although the school is funded by Hampshire County Council, we depend upon fund-raising activities throughout the year to pay for extra resources, equipment and fun activities for the children. These are planned and promoted by our parents association – The Friends of Bidbury Infant School.
We have an active group that supports the school in a number of ways. To raise money, we hold a cake sale each term, relying on delicious contributions from parents, as well as non-uniform days and other events. This year, the money raised has been spent on a children’s entertainer and a ‘Leavers Disco’ for the Year 2 students. In previous years, The Friends have raised money for new playground wall games as well as scooter and bike racks.
The committee always welcomes new members or parents who just like to help at functions – we are all busy parents and appreciate any time that people can give, no matter how small. More information is available from the school office and in newsletters sent out by The Friends.
