Minehead First School Making sure school matters to every child

Friends of Minehead First School

Who are ‘Friends of Minehead First School’?


We are a group of parents and teacher volunteers, with the aim of enriching the children’s time at our school.


Our committee consists of the following members,


Chair - Beth Pollard (Parent)

Vice Chair - Chantell Bailey (Parent)

Secretary - Sarah Gooding (Teaching Staff)

Treasurer - Suzanne Hawley (Teaching Staff)


Plus some wonderful parents and teachers.


We meet approx 6 times a year (once per half-term), sometimes in the pub, and sometimes at the school. Wherever we are, we ensure our location is child friendly and relaxed. During our meetings we discuss forthcoming events, new fundraising ideas and how the money raised could be best put to use.


We organise and host fundraising events throughout the school year from gift shops, discos, tuck shops and fayres, and we are always keen to try new ideas.


New members are always welcome, the more support we have, the more we can do for the children. It’s a great way to meet other parents and hopefully make new friends.


Some of the things we have been able to fund so far include:


  • We keep the pool open! FOMFS fund the upkeep and maintenance of the school swimming pool
  • Prizes for the school Spelling Bee
  • Leavers gifts for year 4
  • Buses for school trips
  • Playground Equipment
  • Class Christmas gifts
  • Author Visit for World Book Day
  • Chick Kit for the Pre-School and reception
  • …to name but a few.
