FSMS (Friends of St Mary’s School)

Parents whose children attend St Mary the Virgin Primary School are automatically members of FSMS.

The aims of FSMS:

To encourage co-operation between the school, parents, governors and other ‘friends’ associated with the school.

To engage in activities of all kinds, both educational and social which will help directly or indirectly, the education and welfare of the children attending the school.

Friends of St. Mary’s is an active and successful group that plays an important role in the life of the school, particularly through the organisation of fundraising events throughout the year. We do hope all parents will support FSMS. All parents are welcome to attend FSMS meetings. Your help at events will always be appreciated. Any support you give will benefit your child.


Find ‘Friends of St Mary the Virgin’ on Facebook for up to date details and reminders of events. This page is run by parents. It is not used for school information.
