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.

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.
