The determination of the decomposition numbers of symmetric groups is a famous longstanding open problem. In this talk I will firstly introduce my recent joint work with Dr. Wildon on the topic. We have been studying some structural properties of the family of ppermutation modules known as Foulkes modules; I will show how we used this information to completely determine a number of columns of the decomposition matrix of the symmetric group. In the second part of the talk I will present a new, more general result on the modular structure of the Foulkes modules. In particular I will give a classication of the vertices of all their indecomposable summands.
