Parents Association

Welcome to Longlands Primary School PA


(Reg. Charity No: 1124172)


The PA Committee

As a parent or carer of a child at Longlands Primary School, you are automatically a member of the association and your thoughts and suggestions regarding activities will be more than welcome. Even if you are unable to commit yourselves regularly, a one-off offer of help at an event, or a cake donation, is always appreciated.


What The PA Does

We are passionate about our school and helping the children be the best they can be. Over the years we have raised money to help the school in numerous ways.


We are always looking for new fundraising ideas and opportunities, but we usually raise money through fun events and initiatives:


  • Summer Fete
  • Christmas Fete
  • Theatre trips
  • Bakes Sales
  • School discos
  • Quiz nights


These events are organised 100% by the PA and without a merry team of volunteers these events would not be possible.


If you have any other ideas, please let us know.


Ways The PA Helps The School


The PA spends its money to enrich the children’s education and supplement the increasingly stretched school budget.


Over the years we have contributed towards/purchased:


  • Playground revamp
  • Chrome books
  • Trim Trail
  • Wish Lists for Classes
  • Subsidised School Trips
  • Books & Furniture for the new School Library
  • ICT Equipment
  • Theatre visits to the School
  • Wifi Upgrade
  • Bike Pods
  • Forest School
  • School reading rabbits




In addition to our events, there are other ways you could help with fundraising:


  • Money Matching. Do you work for a company that has a money matching scheme?
  • Own your own business? Are you able to donate prizes for grand draw prizes at our Christmas and Summer Fetes?
  • The Giving Machine - Join 

Do your internet shopping via this link, select Longlands Primary School as your ‘giver’ and the school receives a % donation from what you spend. 


The current core members of the PA are:


Chair:              Jo Rafter

Vice Chair:      Sarah Morgan

Treasurer:       Anita Early

Secretary:       Michelle Short

Events Coordinator:  Tracy Brown
