The P.T.A.'s two main aims are:

  1. To provide different school events that add to the community feel for Lower Park with exciting opportunities for the children and parents.
  2. Raise funds to provide school equipment and resources that we do not receive sufficient funding for from the Local Authority. Such equipment includes class laptops.

10% of all fund raising provides funding for special needs equipment. In the past few years the PTA have also funded the tyre park, trim trail, Viking Ship and sound system for the hall. View photos of some of the purchases on the PTA 'Where the money goes' page - see below.
