The Friends of the Mendip School (affectionately known as FOMS) is a committee made up of parents, friends and teachers of the school. We work together to discuss how we can contribute to fundraising, help with events and support our school.
Chair – Verena Fuller
Vice Chair – Georgie Richards
Treasurer – Kate Smedley
Secretaries – Rebecca Allen & Josie Budd
As a parent/carer of children at the school you are automatically included in our membership so please feel welcome to come along to meetings and events.
if you are unable to make it to meetings, but have any ideas you would like to contribute, please send an email to us on firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a ‘Parents at the Mendip School’ Facebook Group, which is proving a great way to keep in touch with other families.
We also have a Friends of the Mendip School Facebook page where you can keep up to date with the latest news and events from FOMS.

We understand only too well that life is pretty hectic for our families. At our recent AGM meeting, our Chair Verena spoke of how we all juggle the fastest spinning plates ever seen! And also of how the resolve of the committee is stronger than ever. We have been lucky to have received such truly wonderful support from many parents and carers, teachers and supporters, who receive our thanks.
In the last year, we have continued to run our popular and profitable events; continuing to boost the funds, not only to put towards the swimming pool project but also to buy much needed items now. As always some events have been more successful than others, but we have learnt from each one and we can continue to build on that for next year.
Funds have also been raised through Just Giving campaigns, for the Virtual Realty kit and the Chicken house – the generosity that people have shown has made these appeals an amazing success! Thank you to everyone who donated and helped to spread the word. The virtual reality campaign reached its target so watch out for some exciting developments at the Mendip School very soon! And the chickens are very happy and thriving since moving into their new home as you can see!
We are still only at the beginning of the FOMS journey; we still have so much more to plan, enjoy, raise money for and donate to the school. Here’s to an even more successful third year.
