Friends of Park Lane FOPLS
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

What did we raise in 2016/17
FOPLS had a net income of £8594 for 2016/17. We were extremely fortunate to receive fund matching donations from Cala Homes, Barclays Bank and Nisa/Keshco.
The Summer Fayre and the Christmas Bazaar both made over £1300 each.
We held a family bingo at Easter and a Fashion Show. We also held the usual 4 school discos making a total profit of £2300.
How did we spend your money in 2016/17
We had a large funding project of £8000 for the multi goal units in the main playground. They will give a great benefit to the children for many years to come.
We funded many historical learning days:
Romans, 1066, Battle of the Somme, Egyptians and even an inflatable Planetarium
What we will be doing this year
We urgently need new committee members to continue our fundraising as our current committee have children coming to the end of their primary schooling.
This year we are making some new exciting changes to our schedule of events including a Christmas Family Bingo with a visit from Father Christmas.
More information to follow.
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.
