St. Mary’s Church of England Primary School has a very active and supportive parent body who are known as Friends of St. Mary’s School – or more simply FoSMS!
FoSMS is a registered charity – 277302, based at the same address as the school. FoSMS is run in accordance with its constitution – a copy of which can be found in the link below:
Link to be available soon.
FoSMS is run by elected parent members alongside the Head Teacher, Miss Cheryl Payne, who serves as Chair. The currently elected and serving members of the FoSMS Committee can be found in the link below.
Every parent who has a child at our school is automatically a member of FoSMS and they are very welcome to attend the regular meetings to discuss how they can help the school in many practical ways – the most obvious being the raising of money! If you would like to receive details of forth coming FoSMS events and meetings please subscribe to our newsletter by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Membership of FoSMS is not limited to our current parents, carers and guardians-many parents whose children have left the school, ex pupils and ex members of staff also elect to become or remain a member of FoSMS as part of our Alumni body.
If you would like to become a member of FoSMS and receive our regular newsletter, please send an e-mail to email@example.com with ‘subscribe’ in the subject line. Please indicate the year/s in which you have children currently attending the school, or whether you have children who have left the school and only wish to receive notices of alumni events.
If you want to contact a member of the FoSMS Committee, want to know who your Class rep is or have any other queries please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
FoSMS organise many events throughout the school year and work collaboratively on projects that help to enhance the children’s experiences here at St. Mary’s. The head teacher and staff are very grateful for the many extra resources and equipment that have been provided by FoSMS for the school.
