We are very fortunate at Longton Primary School to have a thriving Association that has been an integral part of the school community for many years. All parents and all teachers are automatically members of the Association.

Its stated aims are:

  • To support the education of the children via fundraising and other activities
  • To foster more extended relationships between staff, parents and others associated with the school.

The Longton Primary Association provides the children with some luxury extra items and activities requested by the staff and pupils and suggestions by parents. In the past years, the money the Association has raised has been put towards a variety of vital purchases such as new books, sports and science equipment, interactive white boards, data projectors for the assembly halls, equipment for the 'outdoor classrooms', playground and building enhancements and activities for children to use during wet playtimes

Over the past twelve months the Association shopping list was as diverse as ever but the Association has again achieved its aim of providing the children of Longton with 'that extra something' to help make their days more fulfilling and exciting, thereby helping them to learn and develop, not just academically but physically and spiritually. The support from Longton Primary, parents and pupils is invaluable and the Association thanks everyone who has contributed to its success over the last academic year.

Becoming More Involved

Although every parent automatically becomes a member of the Association when their child starts at Longton Primary, some wish to get more involved. This would mean becoming a member of the Committee. Members can support the Association by helping on a stall, setting up and attending events. Committee members meet to plan, lead and organise events. The Committee meets at least once a term, all dates are on the published school calendar. This is organised by the parents. A number of school staff also serve on the Committee.

Election onto the Committee takes place at the AGM mid-October, if places are available. This AGM is held at the school hall and you will be notified by a letter that it is taking place, with all the details, so you may attend. The Committee is limited to a membership of 18 with representation from parents from each part of school. A waiting list system operates when the Committee is at capacity.

Becoming a member of the Committee is a serious responsibility but it is also a lot of fun! For further information on how to join the Committee, please contact Chairperson, Mrs Alison Moxham and/or Mrs Emma Chandler at ptfa@longton.lancs.sch.ukor via our school office.
