FOS Stands for Friends of Severndale (Academy, Severndale @ Mary Webb and Futures).
Friends of Severndale (FOS) is a group of mainly parents, but also staff, carers and friends of students at Severndale Specialist Academy, Futures and Severndale at Mary Webb.
We became a registered charity in 2003. Our main aim is to enhance the lives of our students and their families. Each term, we arrange inclusive events for families to socialise and have fun! We raise money to fund school projects and provide a platform to enable family members, carers and friends to connect in person and via social media. We aim to share ideas and listen to problems, improving resilience and strengthening bonds between families. We meet for monthly committee meetings and warmly welcome new members.
