Welcome to the PA section.

The Longlands Parents’ Association has been running for many years with the fundamental aim of raising money for the school and supplementing the school budget and giving added value to our children while they are at Longlands.


Over the last few years we have supported and provided so much for the school...


  • Trim Trail

  • Wish Lists for Classes

  • Subsidised School Trips

  • Books & Furniture for the new School Library

  • ICT Equipment

  • Theatre visits to the School

  • Wifi Upgarde

  • Bike Pods

  • Subsidised School Discos

  • Forest School



Contrary to popular belief, every parent/carer of a child at the school is automatically a member of the Parents' Association. The group is led by a committee of 4 (Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer) which we call the 'PA Team'.


The PA Team are currently made up of the following:



Joint Chair - Lisa Savage


Lisa has one child at Longlands, Harry in year 1.  She has been on the PA Committee since 2014 where she started as Donations Coordinator.  Lisa works 4 days a week as a legal secretary in London and also runs her own waitressing business.  In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends.

Secretary - Michelle Short


Joint Chair - Samantha O'Donnell

Sam has a daughter at Longlands, Ellie (6) currently in Picasso Class.

Sam took over as joint chair with Lisa Savage in Sept 2015

Sam works Full Time for the Corporation of Lloyd's and has done for almost 5 years, hence why you won't see Sam around the school as much as the other members of the PA, but is always happy to be contacted with any questions or ideas for future events!

Outside of work Sam likes to spend as much time with her daughter as well as socialising with her friends



In addition to the PA Team we have several key volunteer roles in a variety of areas....

Volunteer Co-ordinator
Publications & Promotions Co-ordinator
Donations Co-ordinator
Fundraising Co-ordinator
Merchandise Co-ordinator
Coffee Morning Co-ordinator

Book Co-ordinator
Year 6 Rep (Annual Role)



We are always on the lookout for people to help out at our events or behind the scenes as and when they can around their commitments, even the busiest parents can give time at some point to help their child's join our Facebook Group (longlandsschoolpa) and let us know your email address and we will keep you informed of when we need assistance and you can let us know as and when you can help.


Any assistance, however small is gratefully received and remember that it's all for the benefit of the children!
