Lightwoods PTA

Lightwoods PTA (LPTA) is a group of parent volunteers working to raise money and hold events for children and parents at the school.

We organise the Summer Fayre’s together with other events throughout the year for both fundraising and for the children (and parents) to enjoy.

The money raised by the PTA is used to directly benefit the children in the school in providing both educational and enjoyable resources.  In 2019 we have already been able to source buddy benches for each site to help children to easily find friends and playmates together with reinforcing the schools very successful anti-bullying stance.  We have also provided significant funds to expand the selection in the school libraries at both sites and funded the expansion of the ‘DoodleMaths’ app to Key Stage 2 to help support the school maths curriculum.

We are always looking for volunteers to help whether that be as a full member or for adhoc assistance with events we promote.  We are also always looking for fund raising ideas, connections with community projects or any feedback you may have. If you join us you can be involved as little or as much as you are able, we are very conscious how busy life is for everyone.  The more people who are involved, the more events and fundraising we can plan and the less time needed from each volunteer.

If you are interested in joining the PTA or have any feedback or ideas, please contact Jen Waugh (jennie.waugh75@gmail.com) or Laura Turner (laura871@hotmail.co.uk).  We also have a Lightwoods Primary School PTA Facebook group specifically for parents of children currently at Lightwoods School.
