Lowther Primary School's Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a volunteer organisation dedicated to the school's diverse community, to the well-being of our children and to their education and pastoral care. All parents and teachers are automatically members of the PTA.

Each term we organise fundraising events and social get togethers for parents and children. The PTA has raised thousands of pounds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance the children's education and the school facilities. The PTA also helps to foster closer links between home and school and is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of our school.

Next year's Safer Internet Day (SID) celebrations will take place on Tuesday 5th February 2019.

The 2018 theme was, "Create, connect and share respect: A better internet starts with you" is a call to action for every stakeholder to play their part in creating a better internet for everyone, in particular the youngest users out there. More than that, it is an invitation for eve-ryone to join in and engage with others in a respectful way in order to ensure a better digital experience.

ParentMail and Payment Information
 

Attention all parents!

Communicating with you is an important part of what we do, making sure you get the correct information about activities, events and school news that really matters is something we care about.

Lowther School uses ParentMail, a service which helps us to communicate more efficiently and effectively to parents.

We can now also receive payments through the ParentMail system.

We inform parents by email and/or text about items they need to pay. Parents can then pay on their mobile or computer and money is transferred directly into the school bank account - it's all very easy and secure. Cash, cheque and voucher payment can still be recorded so parents can pay whichever way is most convenient to them.

We'd like to encourage all parents to download the App as there are a number of benefits both to you and the school:

* You don't need to login to pick up messages or attachments when you use the App

* The App stores all the messages we send you in one place

* Every message sent arrives as an instant alert on your mobile

* You help save us money!

Secondary Admissions Appeals
 

If your child has been refused a place at one of your preferred primary or secondary schools, you may appeal the decision of the admissions authority. Your reasons for appealing will then be considered by an independent panel.

Guidance for submitting an appeal is available on the local authority website along with the appropriate submission forms. To view/download these and other relevant information please click here.
