Welcome to the Friends of Metheringham School (FOMS) Webpage!


Please read our latest Newsletter to find out about forthcoming events and fundraising for Metheringham School.

FOMS – Friends of Metheringham School



FOMS are a team of parents who organise events throughout the school year for two reasons:

  1. So that your children have fun
  2. To raise funds so that the school can buy resources that it doesn’t have the money to buy itself.


Hi, my name is Claire Parry and along with Carrie Biriny, we've taken over the chair of Friends of Metheringham School (FoMS). Between us we have 2 seven year olds at Metheringham Primary School and a three year old due to start next year. We are really looking forward to welcoming new ideas and new volunteers to the team. If you have an idea, suggestion, special skill or simply want to help out on an occasional basis, please don’t hesitate to catch us at the school or on 07866 106804.

We’ll be meeting in the Star and Garter on Tuesday 6th November to discuss arrangements for the Children in Need Disco (15th November) and Christmas Fayre (6th December) so if you’d like to join us you’d be more than welcome. If you’re unable to attend but would still like to help out at either event please let us know.

FoMS organise events throughout the year to enhance the children’s school experience and to raise funds for the school. In the past, this fund has purchased numerous resources including a new playhouse for the Early Years outdoor area, Sports day medals and art projects. In the future we'd like to promote healthy eating by reducing sweets (mainly at the discos) and avoid using disposable plastics where possible.

We would like to say a big thank you to Sara Ashley and Rachel Love-Howseman, who have stepped down as the Chair and treasurer of FOMS respectively now that their own children will be moving on from Primary school. They, along with their team of volunteers have worked hard to raise lots of money for the school and have ensured the smooth running of many school events.

We would be grateful if you could donate any clean, scrap cotton in white or green to make bunting (e.g. old pillow cases or school dresses beyond repair). Please hand at school reception, along with any old uniform that could be reused. Thank you
