The aims of Long Ridings Parents Association are principally to raise funds for the school, forge links between parents, staff, governors and the community of the school and to help bring staff, parents and children together socially.
Last school year (2015-16) we raised over £17,000 with which we contributed £12k towards the new interactive white boards, £3.5k for school trips, a new PA system, theatre visit and football, cross country and gymnastics kits.
Over the year we have organised the Summer fayre, Christmas bazaar, non-uniform days, hairstyling workshop, self-defence workshop, family quiz night, mother’s day/father’s day/Christmas gift sales, Christmas cards, Halloween and Easter cake competitions/sales, the Easter discos, film nights, inflatables day and bags2school x 3
