Our PTA is a charity known as “Friends of Yorke Mead School” (FOYM).
Every parent is automatically a member and is encouraged to join the committee. It meets regularly to plan fund raising and social events.
Each year the FOYM organise a number of events aimed at both raising funds for the school and helping parents and children to feel as one community. The biggest events are a fireworks display and Christmas fair. Most recently funds have helped purchase IT equipment, classroom resources and outside facilities; it has also paid to install a permanent stage in the hall. The FOYM also supports all parents by covering the cost of coaches for the annual school journeys to the residential activity holiday (PGL) and the KS2 pantomime.
