Grow, Achieve, Inspire, Nurture. SMFS where learning is an adventure.


School Society/PTA            

Who are we?

The School Society is a charity supported by volunteers; parents, grandparents, carers, and the local community.  We share the view that if our village school is thriving, so are our children and we want to help every child have fun, love learning and make lasting, happy memories from their time at SMFS. 

What do we do?

We fundraise to help the school buy equipment, run school trips and create brilliant, inclusive, enriching learning experiences for every child. We also run ‘non-profit’ events (like end of term discos) simply to let the children to have fun or try something new.

How do we do it?

We organise brilliant events, both big and small throughout the year, we also have fundraising going on in the background that create a small but steady income stream (such as Amazon Smile and textile recycling.) Some events are just for the children, others are for the whole family and the wider community like Christmas and Summer Fayres. Every time you attend an event, buy a raffle ticket or order from a linked amazon account, you are helping the school thrive.

How can you support your school?

Get involved! We would love for you to support our charity by offering a little bit of your time or expertise. You don’t need to be a committee member or attend meetings.  Simple stuff like helping at an event, providing raffle prizes, selling tickets or just switching on Amazon Smile - it all adds up. The more support we have, the better our events become and this equates directly to money raised and support for the school and the children. 

Who can I contact?
