PTA - Classlist

The PTA would love to introduce you to a new communication tool they are launching to the whole school community.

All parents will be sent an email directly from the app inviting you to sign up. The PTA would love every single parent in the school to create an account to enable full school communication. 

This is a fantastic app - we hope it can build on a real community feel to the school. The PTA want it to replace the PTA WhatsApp groups, Facebook communication and PTA Parentmail notices, but it will do so much more - online ticketing for events, connecting multiple year groups and  make it easier to communicate with all parents of children in a particular club - eg all basketball parents or parents of gardening club for example.


Please see document below with all the features on if you want to know more details, or you can search the classlist website (www.classlist.com) for more answers. The PTA are more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

Quiz Night & AGM Thank You

Happy half term everyone!

We hope you all have some lovely plans, even if they only involve a very well earned rest!

We'd like to thank everyone who came to our Quiz night last week for their fantastic support. It was definitely our biggest turnout to a PTA AGM for a few years and on top of that we had a lot of fun doing a quiz, expertly hosted by Mr Thorne.

Well done to the winning team Agatha Quiztie, their knowledge of obscure 90s pop artists and pandemic news headlines was second to none!! Also thanks to The Lemon Plaice for the delicious fish and chips served up, it definitely served as a good base for all the wine we sold...

But finally, thanks to everyone who came, we raised a whopping £620! Absolutely brilliant amount to start the year with and hopefully a great contribution for the school's projects this year.

Long Lane Virtual Choir - Christmas Concert

Greetings from the PTA & Mrs Canolle!

The Christmas musical concert has been finished and is now available for all to see. We had an incredible 32 children across the school involved - both in musical contribution and the accompanying artwork - all will be rewarded with house points for their efforts.

Mrs Canolle has compiled all the acts together in this 30 minute concert for everyone to enjoy - very ably assisted by her 13 year old son Elisha who provided all the technical skills!

We hope this will provide an uplifting end to the term despite not being able to watch the acts in person.

Ordinarily we would have used this concert as a fundraising event for the school but sadly this hasn't been possible this year. If you would like to donate as a token of appreciation for all the hard work of the students, please use the below link to give a fee-free donation straight to the PTA.
