Friends of Lakeside Primary School (usually referred to just at FoLPS), raises money each school year through many events for children and parents, including seasonal fairs, film nights, magic and quiz shows, disco’s etc.

FoLPS also provides a refreshment service at events throughout the school calendar, such as Grandparents Day, Sports Day, Christmas and Summer productions and Open Evening.

Funds raised by FoLPS are used to enhance the school environment for your child, and in turn we would love you to get involved with our activities.

Each year, 60% of the amount raised is used on things your child will come into contact with on a daily basis, like iPads, library books, Golden Time toys, individual white boards, musical instruments and playground games.

The remaining 40% is put towards a special project. Recent years have also seen FoLPS money used for the new playhouse in Reception, to replace the ‘Trim Trail’ (wooden activity equipment) in the Phase 2 playground, purchase new flooring in Hall 2 and the Dining Room, and to transform the play environment in the Phase 1 playground, including purchasing a pirate ship and numerous other enhancements.

All parents are automatically members of FoLPS when their child enters the school. We would be pleased to have you on board as either a general helper, which could be something as simple, but essential, as folding raffle tickets at home, or as a more regular Committee member. Each class has a Class Representative on the FoLPS Committee, which is often a good way to start to get involved and to find out how things work.

We hope you will enjoy being part of the FoLPS team during your time at Lakeside, and looking forward to seeing you at an event soon.

There could be many reasons why you didn’t receive an order confirmation email from us.

Firstly, please first check your spam or junk mail folder to check it hasn’t been filtered in there.

Secondly, please ensure you add to your contact list or safe sender / white list.

Finally, if you are using an email service provider such as Hotmail or AOL please be advised that they restrict the volume of messages that can be received from a sender and therefore you should download your tickets from "My Account" section of the FoLPS website.

Yes. Please ensure you print your tickets so they can be scanned on entry to the event. Each ticket has a unique QR code on it which identifies you. We use sophisticated scanning technology which seamlessly synchronises scanned tickets to a central database. This way we can ensure that tickets are not fraudulently used multiple times and therefore we can keep your ticket price down.

If you purchased products that showed a QR Code you should have received an order confirmation email from FoLPS using the following email address: .

In the email is a PDF attachment containg all your tickets. Unfortunately, the IOS mail app has issues rendering PDF’s so although you can see an attachment icon you can’t actually see the PDF. You can download a copy of your tickets from the "My Account" section of the website or alternatively, download the email to another device as you’ll need to print them off to be scanned on entry.
