The School has a very active Friends Association.
It exists to promote closer understanding and relationships between home and school and to serve the best interests of our children.
The Friends of Park Lane School (FOPLS) also provides financial assistance when called upon to do so. All parents are automatically members of FOPLS and your help, attendance and support is an asset to the School.
Events we hold to raise money to help provide for the children
Year 6 Leavers BBQ
…and many more

The Summer Fayre made £1600, which was £300 up on last year despite the rain! and the Christmas Bazaar made £1218.
We held family bingo and quiz nights. We also held the usual 4 school discos making a total profit of £2400.
How did we spend your money in 2015/16
We purchased the following items:
X2 table tennis tales
Black Knight historical days
Outdoor play kitchens
What we are funding this year
We are in the process of purchasing some exciting equipment for the playground so watch this space!
We have already agreed to pay for the historical days for this academic year and the Christmas Parties.
As usual all cake bake monies will go back to the corresponding year groups to spend on what they wish.
You can help too!
We appreciate that everyone is very busy these days and find it hard to spare any time for fundraising for their school. However, if everyone did one very small thing it would be amazing how much could be achieved and how little each person would have to do. You do not need to join the committee, but if you could spare the time to help at one event or even do some admin or typing please let us know. Also, if you have any ideas on how to raise money for the school let us know.
