Friends of Riverside Primary School (FoRPS)

About Us

Hi and welcome to FoRPS.

Friends of Riverside Primary School (FoRPS) is a Friends Association with the aim of providing fun events whilst raising funds for the extras that will enhance school life for the children of Riverside Primary School and advance their education. 

The organisation was established in 2015 by a small group of likeminded parents who wanted to be actively involved in school life and do more to support the school.  It is now a well-supported, thriving organisation that has raised thousands of pounds.  FoRPS not only raise funds but also help build the sense of community that the school has through the events organised and an excellent working relationship with the school, helping to bring parents, staff, students and the local community together and working towards a common goal.   

FoRPS isn't just a small committee of people, being a 'friends' organisation means that the whole school community are able to be members (parents, carers, grandparents, staff, child minders, ex-students and members of the local community).  Everyone is equally important.  We understand that how you're involved will depend on your personal circumstances and that it is not possible for everyone to attend meetings or be actively involved on a regular basis.  We value all of our volunteers and pride ourselves on being a welcoming and inclusive team of friends, where we aim to create an environment in which all members feel able and confident to have a voice.
