Welcome to the PFA
A warm welcome to Longborough School Parents and Friends Association. As a parent or carer of a child in our school you automatically become a member of the PFA, we also include grandparents, relatives and members of our fabulous village. We especially welcome parents who are new to the area or school, and encourage you to attend our events and feel part of our close-knit small-school community. Everyone is welcome to all meetings.
Please look out for information on our next key events:
Due to current covid-19 restrictions, we have a temporary pause on 'group' fundraising events. We are obviously concerned that we need to ensure we continue to raise funds for our fabulous school and children to ensure they receive all the enrichment and opportunities we can provide them with.
We are currently trying to organise some covid-friendly fund raising ideas - but in the mean time, if you would like to donate to the PFA- please do so by either cash or cheque (Longborough PFA) to Rachel in the office.
SPRING 2022 FUNDRAISING IDEAS?
We would like to be able to purchase a new interactive whiteboard for Class 1; meaning every class in the school would then have one. If you have any ideas on how we could raise some funds without holding a 'gathering' then please do feel free to make some suggestions to Rachel in the office or any of the staff on site. All help with ideas and support with organising them is greatly received.
CHRISTMAS FUNDRAISING 2021!
Very many thanks to everyone who purchased their children's designs on mugs, bags, coasters, mouse mats and even Christmas cards! We have made a great profit of £280 from this event. Our Christmas Family Hamper was won by Renee; congratulations! We raised another £75 from this raffle.
SATURDAY SPRING CLEAN UP : 24th April
Thank you so much for everyone who helped us get our school grounds looking great. With new gates hung, hedges cleared, litter picked, Willow sculpture shaved, broken steps mended, guttering and drains cleared, along with lots and lots of leaf mulch from the playground we have all made a fabulous impact. THANK YOU! Your support is greatly appreciated.

YOUR PFA NEEDS YOU!
As you are well aware, we are a small village school with a limited number of 'families' to draw upon. We are always in need of help: producing cakes, tombola prizes, helping prepare for events, tidying up, manning stands, and any time and help you can provide, now matter how small, will make a big difference to us. We value all contributions, from all 'trades'. So if you fancy a spot of gardening? Or feel you have a skill or resource you could provide, please do get in touch with us.
Every year the PFA fund: contributions for coaches for all trips; Pantomime tickets and refreshments; Subsidised entry costs; new guided reading books; playground equipment; prizes for competitions; donations to school for learning support; subsidised club costs; Christmas treats (party/games/crackers/lunch); musical instruments and lessons; learning resources and computer support. Not to mention all the little extras which go unnoticed. All these amazing opportunities can only happen with your support and attendance at events. Please do continue to make sure we can provide the very best 'learning experience' for such a small school.
Thank you for your continued support.
Everyone is welcome to all PFA meetings. Notices are emailed and put up on the noticeboard outside school.
