Better Together

FOBL (Friends of Bracken Leas) commitment to the improvement of the school is evident in the resources it has funded. Among these are the trim trail and daily-mile track, the annual pantomime, resources for the teachers, and many others. As we strive for better facilities and equipment for all our children's education, your unwavering support is crucial.

All About Us

FOBL is a great way to raise money and support the school by bringing together parents, teachers, and others. As a result, everyone has the opportunity to work together towards a common goal. No matter how little time you have, parents, grandparents, carers, friends, and teachers can get involved.

The FOBL team is a dedicated group of volunteers that work tirelessly for all the pupils at Bracken Leas Primary School. Even if you're not able to come to the meetings but would like to help, then please contact us on fobl@blps.thlt.academy

Our main objectives are:

· To raise funds to help the school provide "extras" for the pupils

· To run social events for parents and children

· To engage in activities or provide facilities or equipment which support the school

The school will benefit from the additional funds and this will give parents the opportunity to be more involved in their children's school life.

We raise this money through holding various different events throughout the year:

The now-famous ‘Warrior Challenge’, Disco Nights, MUFTI Days, Mother's and Father's Day sales, Raffles, Quiz nights, MUFTI days and Second-hand Uniform Sales.

We always appreciate donations, which are usually small items like chocolates, bottles of bubble bath, stationery, or biscuits. Thank you very much for your generosity!

What is a MUFTI day?

MUFTI days are where the children can wear their own clothes (occasionally themed) are a valuable resource for FOBL. It gives us the opportunity to gather prizes or gifts that we need for upcoming events.

These events normally generate better sums of money for the school than just asking for a financial donation.
