What is PALS? 

PALS is a Registered Charity which was established by parents & teachers to raise money for the school to enhance our pupils learning experiences and support the curriculum.

This year alone we have provided funding for school trips, we have purchased the interactive touch screen, the Key Stage 2 playground equipment, leavers’ gifts and sports equipment!

If you would like to help PALs to make a difference, by joining the Committee or volunteering at our events, then please contact a member of the Committee via:

Parents/Friends at Long Meadow School (PALS)
Registered Charity No. 1095870

To help PALS maximise our fundraising, if your company can match fund any of our events please contact the school reception or email us via the website.

Before Christmas we held our Movies and Munchies event, which was attended by over 250 children, our busiest year ever! Over 160 of you bought tickets for the MK Pantomime ‘Cinderella’ and we hope that everyone who attend enjoyed the show. We have already requested tickets for this year’s performance!  We also hosted a Christmas Fayre, which from your feedback was a huge success and are already planning next years event.

All of our recent fundraising activities have raised over £3,000 to put towards our next project – which is amazing! Thank you to the PALS Committee, parents and school staff who helped out at these events
