The Parent Teacher Association at Black Lane raise money to purchase additional resources and provide extra learning experiences for the pupils through various events and activities. Over recent years we have purchased a wide range of items from IT equipment to outdoor play frames and reading resources. The money raised also ensures that all children receive a present from Santa each year and a year 6 leaving gift.
Over the last few years we have raised a large amount of funds that has helped to install our outdoor gym, two goal posts on the bottom yard, an outdoor classroom, an outdoor canopy in foundation phase and more recently a new sound system in the hall to help improve the quality of sound for children’s performances. This has been a massive success thanks to the support of parents and local funding through grants. Thank you to Morrisons who provided a £10,000 grant to help us develop our outdoor space and to The Thomas Howell Fund who provided us with a £10,000 for outdoor canopy – this has enabled us to progress with our project much quicker than expected. The children now have lots of areas to enjoy physical activity in the outdoors with beautiful views.
We are now looking at planning for our next big project to continue improving the school grounds and children’s wellbeing. If you can help in anyway through donations or sponsors then we would be very grateful. Please contact the school.
Events planned for the 2022/23 academic year so far:
- Sponsored Fun Run
- Monster Mash Disco
- Christmas Fayre
- Santa visit and Christmas Party
- Valentine’s Tuck shop
- Easter Bingo
- Summer Fayre

Dragon Bags Clothing
Dragon Bags is a free fundraising scheme that helps schools across Wales raise funds through textile recycling. Our aim is to achieve our fundraising goals as well as diverting textiles from landfill at the same time. Fill up the bags as much as possible with the items listed- remember the heavier the weight the more money the school can raise.
You will find the clothes bin located in the school shed area by reception.
The PTA run a ‘100 Club’ every month which is well established. The way it works is that:
- You choose a number ‘1-100’
- You keep that number for the year
- Each number costs £4 per month
- At the end of each month a live draw will take place and a number chosen at random
- The winner will receive half of the amount of money in the pot – last year we paid £200 to the winner and £200 to the school
- You are able to have as many numbers as you like and is open to all friends and family of Black Lane
This is a fab way of supporting the school and helping to raise funds for your child’s school.
