What is the LPSA?
The LPSA is the PTA for Lingfield Primary School. It is a registered charity which through fundraising helps to provide better school facilities and extra resources for our children. Every parent/guardian with a child attending the school is a member of the LPSA.
Where can I find information?
The LPSA has a noticeboard outside the KS1 classrooms. Each class has an LPSA rep who helps organise class stalls at fairs and is a point of contact for those parents who cannot make the LPSA meetings.
Up-to-date information including meeting dates and events can also be found on the Facebook group – The LPSA. There is also a Twitter account @thelpsa where you can find event information. We also have a tray in the school office and a pigeon hole for any additional slips/letters/rag bags you may need.
The Green Shop
Gemma Gilbert also runs our Green Shop. She sells good quality second hand school uniform which is donated to us from parents. All items are between £1 and £2 and all the proceeds go to the LPSA. If you are interested, Gemma can take orders via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
How can I help?
There are many ways you can actively help and support your child’s time at school through the LPSA.
- Offer to help before, during or after events.
- Volunteer to be a class rep.
- Attend meetings and share ideas for fundraising.
- Sign up to www.easyfundraising.org.uk and choose the LPSA as your cause.
- Help raise funds through matched funding.
- Attend LPSA events.
What happens to the funds raised?
LPSA members can suggest ideas to the school for where some additional spending might be welcome, however, it is ultimately up to the school to decide where the most appropriate areas are to spend the additional funds raised. The school uses these funds to improve the school experience for all. Some examples of previous LPSA fund spending are:
- Year 6 leavers presents.
- Contributions towards school trips.
- Improvements to outdoor playgrounds.
- In class AV equipment.
- Library refurbishment.
