About FOMM

Fund-raising and social events are organised throughout the year by the Friends of Manor Mead (FOMM), which is a Registered Charity (number 1044171) and the Manor Mead equivalent of a PTA. FOMM is run by parents and staff from school and all parents/carers automatically become members of FOMM when their child starts at Manor Mead.

FOMM meets regularly once a term to discuss and plan future evens and, most importantly, to decide how to spend the monies raised! We are always looking for new members and would very much welcome interest from any parents/carers who would like to join us.

 

FOMM arranges various events throughout the school year as a way to raise money and to get parents/carers together. Events have included:

  • Autumn Bazaar
  • Christmas Raffle
  • Annual Quiz
  • Christmas Shopping and Pamper Evening
  • BBQ and Band Night
  • Family Picnic, including the ever-popular Singing Hands

The funds raised by FOMM are vital to the school and are used in numerous ways that beneficially impact the children. Examples include:

  • paying the maintenance costs of the school’s minibus
  • providing special events for the children, such as concerts and outings
  • providing additional special equipment for the school, such as vibrating cushions, iPads, sensory toys and books
  • paying for the upkeep and maintenance of all the bicycles used by the children in school
  • funding major projects, which have most recently included a small break-out area in White Class, improving the Rainbow 1 accommodation and developing the Musical playground.

 

As well as raising funds for the School, parents have an opportunity to meet through events organised by FOMM, such as the annual Family Picnic. All upcoming FOMM events are advertised in the School Newsletter and on the website.

Individuals can donate directly via our Just Giving page by clicking here. This can also be used to set up a sponsorship page if you would like to do an event (e.g., a run, skydive, swim, walk…) to raise funds for school.
