The Langley Moor Primary Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a group run by friendly volunteer parents with the help of Mrs Stelling and her staff.  The PTA plays a vital role within the school providing support, arranging events and more importantly, raising money for all sorts of equipment for the children. 


Regular fundraising events include; bingo, quiz and film nights, and seasonal fairs.  Over the past few years we have funded Halloween Discos, Christmas parties, supplied funds to the School Council for new outdoor sports equipment and help fund the new outdoor play area.



Have you any thoughts, ideas or concerns about anything to do with school?  Would you like to meet more parents to share your experiences? Would you like to become more involved with school life?

If so, why not join us at one of our meetings?



We are always looking for new members! Meetings take place once per term; usually on evenings at the school.  Look out for the dates on the Friday Flyer and, here, on the school notice board.


Even if you can’t commit to coming to meetings you may be able to help with preparing fruit on mornings for Key Stage 1 pupils or perhaps you have a specialist skill you can offer us at one of our fundraising events?  Whatever time you may be able to give would be a huge help!

Recent Fundraising and Events

School equipment is so much more expensive to buy than you can imagine!  Equipment must come from Certified School Suppliers, for which the School must pay a premium.  Therefore, our additional fundraising is vital for our school.

All money raised by the PTA is invested back into the school. We liaise with staff and children to decide how funds should be spent. We love to think of new ideas to raise money for our school community – if you have any please get in touch!

December 2019 – Christmas Parties: The PTA ordered and funded the children’s party food. Staff and children enjoyed partying to some fabulous festive songs and played some fun games!


November 2019 Winter Fayre: The Winter Fayre was a huge hit with everyone, again this year. The fayre had some brilliant Christmas stalls which included crafts, cakes and, of course, the renowned tombola.  We raised a fantastic £820.36.


November 2019 – Film Night: The first film night of the year was such a great success! The children enjoyed the hysterical animation ‘Madagascar 3’ with hotdogs, drinks and Haribo’s going down very well.


October 2019 – Halloween Disco: Our school hall was once again transformed into a Halloween spectacular on October 21st. The children and staff had a wonderfully frightening time dancing to spooky songs and playing games with the DJ. There were some screamtastic fancy-dress outfits!


September 2019 – Bingo Night: We had a wonderful time at our first event of the new school year.  Our fabulous PTA Chair, Laura Masterman, was the bingo caller providing the numbers and there were some great prizes for the winners!


July 2019 – Summer Fayre: On the 6th July we held our annual summer fayre, the weather was kind and we had glorious sunshine all day.  There were lots of splendid stalls and Nikki Noo Noo entertained us all with her engaging show. We also enjoyed a visit from Diggerland, the 5th Durham Scouts, the Community Support Team provided information to visitors and we had special guest appearances by Jet and Ben. We all had a superb fun filled afternoon and raised a whopping £1335.31, which will be donated to Langley Moor Primary School to contribute towards new playground equipment and the garden project.


June 2019 – Film Night: The first film night was a great success therefore we decided to do a second screening.  This time the children enjoyed the hilarious animation ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ with hotdogs, drinks and popcorn going down very well.


April 2019 – Easter Egg Competition: The whole school took part in decorating an Easter egg with our wonderful Mr Thompson having the tough job of deciding the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in each class.  Everyone’s entries were ‘eggcellent’!


April 2019 – Easter Quiz: The quiz was a roaring success with some very tricky questions. We were delighted to be able to give every child who entered an Easter Egg. We raised £98.64.


February 2019 – Film Night: Just after February half term we hosted our first ever film night! The children enjoyed hotdogs and drinks before settling down to watch the popular animation ‘Sing’.They also appreciated their popcorn half-way through while singing along to the film’s wonderful soundtrack! 


Donations to the school

September 2019 – New bikes and trikes are to be purchased: The PTA donated £1000 to the school to purchase new bike and trikes.

September 2019 – Contribution towards the new garden project: The PTA donated £400 towards the new garden project.

January 2019 – Contribution to the School Council to buy new equipment for the new trolley in the KS2 yard: The PTA donated £238.92 after the School Council wrote a letter to us requesting support for the new equipment.  The children were thrilled with the exciting new items!

April 2018 – Contribution to the new play equipment in the KS2 yard:  Thanks to all the money you helped us raise in the previous school year we were able to donate £2000 towards the new play equipment. 


Without your support during PTA Events, our children wouldn’t get these additional activities and pieces of equipment which make their lives at school just that little bit more memorable!!
