PTA

Lindens Parents' Association

'Working for our children'

 

What is a Parent Association (PA)?

Lindens have a Parent Association (PA), which is an organisation of parents whose role is to encourage closer links between home and our school. PAs are best known for their fundraising work, but they have a useful social function too. Fundraising events provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to get together.  Lindens PA is extremely conscious of the ethos and diversity of our school and run regular fundraising and social events for the whole school community.  Details of forthcoming events and diary dates can be found on regular school newsletters and updates.

How is our PA organised?

All families of pupils at Lindens Primary School are automatically members of the Lindens Parents' Association.

How is money raised?

Lindens PA raise money through events planned and organised by our PA members. We organise many events throughout the year inlcuding School discos, quizzes, Christmas and Summer Fayres and unique events such as jewellery making workshops. We are always looking for further ideas and support to help with our fundraising in School. If you have any fundraising ideas then we would love to hear about them!

How is money spent?

Funds raised by the PA are intended to provide ‘extras’ not already provided by the school's main income – often 'fun things' that make learning more interesting and exciting. Our fundraising efforts help to enhance the education and learning experience of all the children at the school and will continue to do so with your support. 

How can I be involved in my PA?

There are many different ways you can help with the PA, whether you have lots of time to offer or not. All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved.

Some of the roles are time-consuming, although also rewarding and any support is appreciated and welcomed. If you can’t commit to a big job, look out for things you can do less frequently (eg running a stall at the Summer Fayre, baking for a cake sale). You can always support PA events by simply turning up.

If you require any further information or would like to join our PA contact the school office on 0121 3539273.
