Welcome to the PTA section:

Friends At Burleigh School (FABS)


All parents and carers become “Friends At Burleigh School” (FABS) when their children join Burleigh Primary School. However, it is up to you how much you get involved with helping with the events throughout the year


What does FABS do?

Throughout the year we organise a variety of events to raise funds which directly benefit the children at the school now. 


 What did FABS’ funds contribute towards in 2019?

  • £5000 towards the new Junior play equipment


What FABS did in 2020

  • £1,045 was given towards the new Reception playground
  • £200 was raised through the sale of gifts for Mother's Day
  • Easter Eggs were given to all of the children who were in school on Thursday 19th March


In March 2020, FABS was a 'blue token' option in the local Tesco stores.  Due to certain events, Tesco decided to split the funds fairly between the 3 charities.  As a result, Burleigh received £1,166 to put towards some new Buddy Benches in the playgrounds. 


FABS events

Due to the ongoing issues arising from the pandemic, there are no events planned as yet -

watch this space!


When does FABs Meet?

Pre-pandemic, FABS would meet once a month to discuss up and coming events. This would include asking for assistance at events i.e. school discos, running stalls for the Christmas Fayre, Summer Fete.


The office will send a text message out to let you all know when and where the next meeting will be.



FABS is always looking for help; you do not need to attend meetings or be fully committed to assist - any help is always welcome.

If you are interested, and you would like to talk to someone about joining FABS or helping out at one of our events, please leave your name and contact number with the office and one of the FABS team will get in touch.
