Friends of John Blandy (FoJB)


We are incredibly lucky as a school to have such an active Friends Committee, who are keen to put on many exciting events for both the school and village to raise money for the children of John Blandy Primary School. 

Who We Are:


The Friends of John Blandy is an association of parents, teachers and community members committed to providing extra-curricular events and resources for the children of John Blandy School. Each academic year, we host the following events that are great fun AND raise funds to purchase resources.


All teachers, parents or carers automatically become a friend of John Blandy and can get involved with helping around the school, organising fun events for the children and raising additional funds to help supplement resources and activities for them.


Across England school budgets have been cut. That's why Friends plays such an integral part in the school community, raising much needed school funds to ensure John Blandy is a well-resourced school and our children can all achieve their full potential and receive the highest quality education.
