A warm welcome to all parents, teachers and friends of LSA to the PTFA.

The PTFA for LSA meets the first Thursday of each month (usually) at 7.30pm in the School Library. The meetings last around an hour and it’s a great opportunity to meet with other parents.  At each meeting the Head Teacher has a slot on the agenda which provides an excellent opportunity to talk about important/topical school issues.

The PTFA has a few key objectives:

  • To develop extended relationships between staff, parents and others associated with the school.
  • To engage in activities which support the school and advance the education of its pupils
  • To assist in the provision of facilities, not normally provided by the Local Education Authority, for education at the school.

At the meetings we plan our future fund-raising events, discuss the distribution of funds raised and how the PTFA can support the school.

A key role provided by the PTFA is the provision of refreshments for staff and visitors at Parents’ Evenings, Careers’ Evenings and evenings where the pupils are staging events e.g. Music Evenings etc.

We welcome your support whether that is at our monthly meetings or supporting one of the many events we hold to raise funds.
