Parents of St Bart's (POBs)
The POB team help to encourage close links between parents and carers of children and the school.
We coordinate parental support in the classroom, offer assistance and refreshments at school events like parents evenings and sports days, and liaise with the senior leadership team and teaching staff. We have Parent Representatives in each class who communicate important information between teachers and parents and help to arrange class activities and social events.
POBs play an important role in fundraising for the school, (more details on our Fundraising page) and run an annual calendar of events including the Christmas and Summer Fairs, Quiz Night and year group Bake Sales. The proceeds from these events have been used to fund a range of activities and equipment, most recently including cookery lessons for all children, iPads for the Early Years classrooms, a history timeline and new playground equipment.
All of the parents of St Bart s are greatly valued, and to assist communication between the POBs and the school, the Parent Liaison Coordinator role has been taken on by Mr Beckerson. This ensures there is a strong link between the school and parent group.
There are lots of ways that parents can get involved, whether it is helping out at an event, sitting on the POBs committee or volunteering regularly or occasionally in your child’s class. We welcome all your support.
