Our school benefits from a thriving parent teacher association (PTA) which is known as Friends of Laleham School (FoLS). Parents and family members in the school community automatically become members of FoLS and are warmly invited to attend meetings and support events which take place throughout the year. Meet the FoLS Committee here.
FoLS exists to bring parents and staff together to raise funds to provide facilities and equipment which support the school. If you look around the school you will see so much that FoLS have bought or contributed to, these include the fantastic library, sound and lighting system in the school hall, playground markings, ipads, computers and so much more.
We Can Only Do This With Your Help and Support
Here are some ways you can help to support the school:
Please do come along to our meetings as we would love you to get involved! Please view the schools Event Calendar for dates of meetings. These take place monthly, usually on a Wednesday at 7.30pm in the Leopards classroom. Please use the staff entrance on Staines Road for parking. These meetings are currently being held via Zoom to ensure social distancing takes place.
We hold numerous events throughout the year such as a Christmas and Summer fair, the January Jive, Fathers day and Mothers day gift sales, Bags2School collections just to mention a few. Parents will be notified of these events via Parentmail.
We hope to be able to resume events once covid restrictions have been lifted. In the meantime please look at our pta events website details are at the bottom of this page.
Second Hand Uniform Sales
We hold regular second-hand uniform sales after school in the playground. This is a great opportunity for parents to purchase good quality second-hand uniform at a vastly reduced cost. We usually raise around £500 per year from these sales.
We hope to be able to request donations once covid restrictions have been lifted and we can begin holding sales.
