Who are we?

If you have a child attending Middlestown Primary Academy, you are automatically a member of FOMS and your voice counts! FOMS is a mixture of parents who work together for the benefit of Middlestown School. Some parents work part-time and some parents work full-time; NONE of us are specialists in fundraising.

Our aims are to:

  • Raise much appreciated funds for the school
  • Organise a range of fun and social activities
  • Involve the whole school community

Over the years FOMS have been very fortunate with the excellent support it has received from both parents and members of the school staff, but it is always looking for new ideas and help with the planning and running of events throughout the year.

What happens to the funds raised?

The funds raised are used to buy important additional resources for the school and children, which are not available within the standard school budget. These resources significantly enhance our children’s school experience. Some of the funds raised have gone towards whole school pantomime and annual class trips; atlases and dictionaries; and up to date ICT equipment.

How is FOMS organised?

It has an elected Committee who run the FOMS meetings and coordinates all FOMS organised events. Meetings are held twice a term and are open to ALL members so we warmly encourage you to attend. We are also working on getting FOMS registered as a charity. We just need you to come and help plan and organised fun events like the discos, film nights and fayres.

These individual events and activities are then organised by a much wider group of FOMS helpers and other willing members whose support is vital and very much appreciated.

The first FOMS meeting of the new academic year will be on Tuesday 19th September at 2.15pm.
