FOTSMS

All parents and staff are automatically members of the Friends of Tedburn St Mary School or FOTSMS. We are just like a PTA, except we have a different name, and are run by a committee of parents with help at events from parents. Our purpose is to fundraise and organise events for the benefit of the children at the school. We do this in liaison with staff and the school council.

Over the years we have funded several sets of books for Key Stages 1 and 2, contributed towards the cost of school trips, paid for theatre groups to come into school or theatre trips, purchased and organised the erection of the playground equipment shed and greenhouse, purchased the PA system and desks and chairs.

Over the last year we have created a sensory garden for the school which is regularly being used by the children for outdoor lessons and activities.

We organise events such as the Summer and Christmas Fairs, Halloween Disco and Easter Egg Hunt. We also put on teas and coffees at school shows.

All parents are welcome to come along to our meetings which are advertised in the school newsletter and here on the FOTSMS page of the school website. We appreciate offers of help, however limited your time. Please chat to one of the committee if you have any ideas or questions, or ask in the office.

The committee members are:
 
Chair: Rachel Hayes
Vice chair:
Secretary: Kate Murphy and Claire Hope
Treasurer: Tara Hyson and Carolyn Jordan

Other committee members are Cristina Peckett, Elizabeth Smith, Natalie Hodges, Sarah Carpenter, Deborah Hodgson, Matt Currey, Samantha Bastin, Debbie Radford-Lewis, Bernadett Ambruzs Alcser, Nel Stanbury, Emily Dunning and Adrian Robinson.
