Easter Disco: Friday 24th March 4:30pm

Tickets are being sold on the door and are £3.50 per child.  We have a fantastic DJ, craft activities, a Fair Trade tuckshop and  an Easter Bonnet/Hat competition!!!  There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, so make sure your children come wearing an Easter hat! (For those looking for inspiration, HobbyCraft seem to stock a large quantity of Easter themed decs and hats!).  The disco is open to all at Mill Mead from Meadows upwards.  Please can we remind parents that pupils at this event are the responsibility of the adult that they are attending with and therefore should be supervised at all times.  No child should be playing on the foundation stage or main playground as both of these areas will be being used by the Meads.  There is a maximum ratio of 4 children to 1 adult

What we do and why

FOMMS is Mill Mead's Parent Teacher Association.

FOMMS has a constitution and is a registered charitable organisation. We have an AGM and an elected committee as shown above. All parents of Mill Mead pupils are automatically members of FOMMS and are entitled to attend the monthly FOMMS meetings where they will be happily welcomed by the committee.

Download a copy of the FOMMS Constitution

FOMMS work in very close partnership with the school, they have a very busy diary and an extremely successful fund raising record. In recent years FOMMS have raised in excess of £10,000 per annum. This money has been used to supplement the finite funding by the LEA and has allowed additional purchases which the teachers are able to use to the greater benefit of the pupils of Mill Mead School.

The money FOMMS raise does make a huge difference to the success of Mill Mead school. In the last school year the school has used FOMMS donations to supplement the purchase of various items. These have ranged from major capital works, such as the construction of the Tyre Park, through to the simple purchases of Turkey for Xmas lunch and ice lollies for children participating in the Sports Day. Money is also made available to each teacher to fund items specifically for their classes. FOMMS also provide funds annually for Xmas entertainment for the children.

Gift Aid

As a registered charitable organisation we are entitled to claim Gift Aid. We ask all new parents to consider completing a Gift Aid Declaration form. This enables us to reclaim at 28% the tax paid on any donations made by them. The only requirement is that the donor is paying the normal rate of tax. This doesn't cost the donor a penny but allows FOMMS to raise a considerable amount of money without all of the hard work normally involved.
