Park Lane Primary

Friendsfriends logo

The Friends of Park Lane Primary School is a group of parents, carers and staff who dedicate their free time and energy to help, plan, organise and run events to raise money for the school throughout the year. The money raised goes directly into enriching our children's education with equipment, workshops and subsidising school trips. All funds raised are used to enhance the social and educational aspects of the whole school.

 

Any Parent or Carer can join the Friends of Park Lane Primary School Association and joining could not be easier. Just go to our Facebook group page, request to join the group - providing your child's name and class (for verification purposes).

 

Recent raised funds allocated to the school for specific activities include :

  • An amazing Blast Science Week,
  • An incredible Arts Week
  • Sports Equipment, including new Football goal posts
  • Play Cabins for the Playground
  • Literacy shed
  • Magazine subscriptions
  • Music stands
  • Kindle readers
  • and brand new Math’s equipment

 

Some of the regular events Friends organise are:

  • Christmas Bazaar
  • Spring Fayre
  • School Discos
  • Cake Sales
  • Summer Ice Cream sales
  • School uniform shop (we sell high quality branded uniform items and accessories, all with the school logo).

 

All our events are organised and run by volunteer parents and teachers and we depend on lots of parents getting involved and helping out in whatever way they can. That could be as a member of the committee, running a stall at the Christmas Bazaar, doing our electrical testing, or anything else you can think of.  We appreciate any time, energy and skills you can bring.

 

We meet at regular intervals throughout the year, with an AGM in October. Our meetings are normally held at the Juniors in the evening, and are advertised in advance. Anyone can come along – new faces are always welcome!

The Friends also manage the selling of school uniform clothing items, all with the school logo. From September 2019, school uniform items can be purchased online at https://shop.parklaneprimary.school. Orders placed can be collected from the school.
