Welcome to Barfield Friends
Families of Barfield children and Staff will automatically become a member of “Barfield Friends” on joining the school, and will be invited to join in as and when they can with events and activities.
We organise events for the benefit of children and their families, the aim of which is to have fun, foster the family ethos of the school and hopefully raise some money as well! We meet twice a term and everyone is welcome. Dates and venue of meetings can be found on our community website (detailed below).
The Committee: Although all parents are "members" of Barfield Friends, it is supported by a core committee of:
- Chairman of the Friends – Jonathan Sproule
- Secretary – Sandie Wilkinson
- Treasurer – Jasmine Clark
- Staff representation and/or Headmaster’s Wife – Ceri Davies
The members of the Committee shall be elected at the Annual General Meeting, when they will be eligible for re-election.
Funds are raised at some of the events in order to help the school to buy those ‘little extras’. Over recent years we have contributed towards additional interactive whiteboards, table tennis table, netball posts, outdoor play equipment, deckchairs and also made some substantial donations to a couple of small local charities, a more detailed list of what we have purchased can be found on our community website.

This can be done by emailing the site administrator at: firstname.lastname@example.org we will then send you the relevant information on how to register. Alternatively the site can be accessed at www.jumblebee.co.uk/barfield and you can register online. Local businesses are able to “sponsor” or advertise to our school community. If you know of a local business who may be interested, it is an affordable opportunity to advertise to select ABC1 families.
Once registered you can found details of dates for meetings, forthcoming events, meeting minutes, committee members and even be able to buy tickets to events or buy / sell items on our virtual car boot sale. The site is still fairly new and will only get better as more information is added. We aim to add more information which could include things like: great days out, useful contacts for trade’s people such as tree surgeons, plumbers, good reads for children / adults – all as recommended by members of Barfield Friends. As you can see we are working towards it being a great place to find information – so if you have not already registered then please do!!
