Lauriston Primary School

Lauriston School Association

What is the LSA?

Lauriston School Association is a parent led group responsible for organising social and fundraising events throughout the school year. Any parent with a child at Lauriston is welcome to attend LSA meetings and assist with events whilst members of the LSA Committee are voted in at the annual AGM each November.  The overall objective of the LSA is to provide a friendly environment for parents to get to know each other and get involved with the school, as well as raising much needed funds.

What does the LSA do?

Events include the International Food Evening, Winter Fair, Summer Fair, Table Top Sale, 100 Club, Cake Sales and more. The LSA helped transform the Art Shed into a usable building for Art classes as well as the new Breakfast Club. We have also funded the text messaging service, a valuable resource to keep parents up to the minute with important school information, and most recently have funded new playground equipment for the school.

How can I get involved?

All parents/carers and staff are welcome to come along to our meetings and coffee mornings. We are keen for the LSA to broaden its reach by having as many parents as possible get involved. So if you’d like to get involved or find out more, please contact Lorraine Groom the school manager. All parents will automatically receive an email/text informing of the next school LSA meeting.

Lauriston School Association AGM – Tuesday 15th January 2019 6pm

All parents, carers and staff at Lauriston are members of the Lauriston School Association (LSA).

The LSA owes its success to your contributions and participation. The Committee are asking you to support an important milestone in our history - registration with the Charity Commission for England and Wales.

In order to do this we need to adopt a new constitution. Our current constitution was adopted many years ago, and while it has served us well, it does not reflect some recent requirements for registered charities.

We propose to adopt a model PTA constitution recommended by Parentkind, a membership organisation for school PTAs. The key advantages of the model constitution are:

  • It is fully aligned with goals and purpose of the LSA as stated in our current constitution
  • It is pre-approved by the Charity Commission and will qualify us for fast track registration
  • It is based on best practices, and addresses all aspects of running a PTA

You can find the full text of the new constitution with guidance notes attached along with the current LSA constitution.

If you have any questions about the new constitution, please email the committee at lauriston.lsa@gmail.com

LSA members will be asked to vote to adopt the new constitution at the LSA Annual General Meeting (AGM) on January 15th.

Agenda:

  1. Welcome reception and playground design presentation
  2. LSA Committee report and accounts for 2018/2019
  3. Adoption of new LSA constitution
  4. Election of LSA Committee
