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
