Friends of Bridport Primary School


Welcome to the Friends of Bridport Primary School Web page! 

The Friends of Bridport Primary School (FoBPS) are parents and teachers who want to help the children of BPS to have as enriched and rewarding a school experience as possible. We come together to create a community that organises events to raise money for valuable activities and resources that the school’s budget cannot provide and that are not funded from other means.

We are always welcoming new friends so come and get involved! Click on our pages to view upcoming events and fundraising efforts.

FOBPS Meetings: Our meetings are always held in the pub, allowing us to have a catch up and a chat either side of the meeting discussions; please do come to our next gathering if you can on Tuesday 4th June in The Tiger Inn, Bridport, from 7:30pm

New to You Sales: We hold stock of items such as grey/black skirts, dresses, trousers and shorts, and green jumpers or cardigans for sale at bargain prices (£1 per item).  Our sales are held outside the school main office from 3pm on the last Monday of each half-term (confirmed in social media and newsletters prior to each sale).

Uniform Donations:

Please consider donating any good quality used uniform to the New to You stock. We are particularly short of the larger sizes.  Simply bag it up and put it in our New to You bin next to the Green Textile Recycle Bank in the school car park.  We accept grey/black skirts/trousers/shorts/dresses, summer dresses, green jumpers, cardigans, and PE hoodies.  NO shoes, bags, coats, white polo shirts, underwear(!) or non-clothes items, thank you (these are rarely asked for and take a lot of room in our small storage area).

Stop us for a chat in the playground! 

Chairperson - Sam Hansford (Mum to Year 6 and Year 3 children). 

Vice Chairperson - Amy Cox (Mum to children in Year 3 and Year 2).

FOPBS Communications

Our new communication group sits within WhatsApp. If you think you can spare a little time to help the PTA every now and then, please email us at We will add you to the WhatsApp group, where we can put a shout-out when we need help!

Alternatively, we still have the communication links below; handy for reminders of events such as discos, uniform sales, cake sales and the summer event, with some parents using email as their preferred mode of communication when help is requested.

The textiles collected are either sent to Eastern Europe to be used again or converted into insulation materials and industrial cleaning wipes - less than 1% of what you donate will end up in the ground. 

Items must be bagged please, and the following is accepted: Clothing, Uniform (if not fit for New to You), Shoes, Accessories (bags, hats, gloves, scarves, belts etc), bed linen and towels.  Please note, the textile bank does not take Carpet, Curtains, Fabric Off cuts and General waste.
