"Inspiring All to Achieve"

FoStM Issue 2 - Summer Term

Summer Term seems to have flown by and the holidays are nearly upon us!We’ve had afternoon tea to celebrate St George’s Day, Star Wars film night, book sales, uniform sale, Fathers Day raffle and a wonderful disco for our leavers!

These events have given the children some brilliant experiences and raised over £800!!!


The Friends of St Mary’s have been able to donate £200 to Mrs Taylor’s crowd funding project to help reach their goal of 11 tablets; Early Years will have 2 shiny, new water trays and the school now has a mini oven/grill with 2 hobs which will also useful in cookery club!

    What do we do?

    We organise events throughout the year such as discos, fairs, competitions and social evenings. The aim is to have fun and socialise while raising money for the school.


    How can I get involved? Everyone is welcome at meetings and to have a say in what we do.

    There are so many ways you could help ... wrapping prizes, folding raffle tickets or helping at events or sales. It’s a great way to meet other parents and enrich your child’s learning.

    You never know you may even enjoy it!
