Massive Thank You!

The sun shone for us at the Summer Fair on 6th July which certainly helped us all enjoy the afternoon’s activities to the max!

We want to say a massive thank you again to all the volunteers – over 150 of you – and to all our guests and anyone else who helped raise money towards the FAB fundraising.

Special thanks to Higgidy who provided products to sell on the Food stall.  Also to all our Raffle and Silent Auction donators.  If you own or work for a company who can donate a prize for future fairs, please let us know.

and a bar serving Pimms and much more…

Important dates to remember…

Adult’s tombola (wine, chocolate, smellies, unwanted gifts) &
Kid’s tombola (new toys, books & games).

Friday 5th July: Cake & Finger Food donations
(bought or homemade)
Cuddly toys (clean old cuddly toys)

We need your help to run this massive event! If you can help in any way then please sign up to any of the tasks below– it’s really simple you just need to click the link, chose a slot, type your name and enter your email address.

Kids can help out with you on all the stalls except on the Bar, the Food and Candy Floss Stalls. Kids can also come along to help set up the fair in the morning or tidy away at the end… but usually they just run around the field like lunatics – but as long as they are happy and don’t get in the way we don’t mind!! 😉

Thank you

FAB event dates for your diaries for the Summer Term


On Saturday 18th May Balfour will be participating in the Brighton Artists Open House festival. The school will be showcasing art created by our children across both sites. For more information on the festival, check out their website:

Later on in the Summer term on Saturday 6th July is our annual Summer Fair – a massive fundraiser for FAB. We have lots of exciting activities, stalls, food and drinks for the whole family to enjoy. These events can’t be held without the significant help of our school community, so if you can help in the run up, set up, during the event or clearing away, make a note in your diary and the online sign up links will be available soon.

Spring Term Activities

We’re pleased to tell you about the Spring activities that FAB are involved in for this term.

First is the return of the Scholastic Book Fair from Friday 1st March until Thursday 7th March. As per previous events, it will be held at the KS2 site by the Year 6 Base. Last time we ran the fair, we took over £800 which resulted in £87 worth of books for the school. So come down and have a look at the range of discounted books for sale.

If you can spare the time to help volunteer at the book fair please sign up by following this link

Also this term, is our Spring Quiz Night on Friday 15th March raising funds to support Science Week later in the year.

Annual Easter Egg Hunt will be held after school on Friday 29th March. Tickets for both these events can be bought online – check out the events posts on this site.

Christmas Fair update

Oh the weather tomorrow is frightful, but the fair will still be delightful….
So yes light rain expected tomorrow afternoon – but it’s the winds that are causing us hassle!! We can now ensure you the the whole fair will be inside in the warm!! I’m not sure how we have managed it… but it should all be fine! Sadly there will be no Christmas karaoke as something had to go… we will still have everything else, hot food, a full bar, candy floss and all the stalls. It maybe be slightly squishy in places but please come and help us raise money for the school!!

2 Sleeps until The Christmas fair!

With only 2 sleeps to the Christmas fair the FAB crew have been very busy and we’re getting excited!

The team are busy folding raffle and tombola tickets, collecting craft supplies, buying food and drinks, checking lists, adding in last minute volunteers (still need adult food and bar servers at various slots), prepping for the set up, and praying for good weather. 💪☀️🌤

You can buy your Grinch or Santa visit tickets online for £3.50 each at – search for a 15min slot that suits you! Tickets can be bought online until 9pm on Friday 7th December, but also available on the day. 🎅🧟‍♂️

We can also confirm the delicious menu for Saturday too! 🌭🥘🍲🍔

8 sleeps till the Christmas Fair!

Thank you so much for all your generous donations for the tombolas 👍

Raffle tickets should be with you all now – cash/cheques and stubs (and any unused) into the FAB boxes by end of the day on Thursday 6th December, or return at the fair please. 💲

We’ve had a look at the sign up sheets for KS1 classes – some of the classes have smashed it with getting all slots filled…some still have more slots to be filled. If you can fit an hour in to help run a stall, please sign up. We don’t want to have to cancel stalls. 🎉

We’re still looking for adults to help with candyfloss stall, set up on Friday evening or Saturday morning and clearing away and can fit in more Year 5/6 children on stalls.

If you want to get involved, let us know at
