Who are the Friends of Barker's School of Excellence?
Friends of Barker's School of Excellence is the name of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). All families and staff at the school are automatically ‘Friends’ and we welcome parents, grandparents and carers from all year groups including Nursery. We are a registered charity and our committee consists of four posts - Chairperson, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. These are voluntary roles, filled by parents with children at the school. They are flexible positions and can be shared. We rely on volunteers from all year groups to make our events a success.
What do the Friends do?
We raise valuable funds for the school by organising events. We want families to have fun and get to know each other and all the money we raise goes directly to the school. Our regular events include monthly cake sales, lolly sales in the summer, Christmas fair, Summer fair, family nights and an Easter egg hunt.
Our next exciting event is Family Night on Saturday 14th October 2017.
How can I get involved?
There are lots of opportunities to get involved and we need as much help as possible! At the fairs and family nights we need people to work in the kitchen, on the bar and on various stalls but we also need lots of people behind the scenes - cake bakers, chilli makers, raffle ticket envelope stuffers, the list goes on!

Did you know that you could shop at over 2000 different online retailers and help raise money for the school at the same time? The Friends of Templemoor has registered with www.easyfundraising.org.uk. It's a really easy way to raise funds - all you do is register with the site and choose ‘Friends of Barkers School of Excellence’ as your chosen charity. Then the next time you shop online, enter the Easyfundraising site and shop as normal. There is even a tool bar strip that pops up each time you visit a retailer involved to remind you to use Easyfundraising. You don't pay us anything - it's the retailers who give us a percentage of their sales!
