Friends of Riverside

Friends of Riverside School (FORS) are a group of parents, carers and staff who help to enhance the school experience by organising fun activities and events, as well as raising funds for items that fall outside standard school budget.
What does that mean?

FORS run school discos, bbqs, fairs, quiz nights, cheese and wine, litter clearing, ice cream treats and more…..

We work with community groups like the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival, Rotary Club, Hebden Royd Council and others. Anyone can get involved and be part of FORS.

The money we raise is spent on various things, requested by the school staff and pupils, and decided by the FORS committee. In the last two years we have supported:

  • Year 6 learning pod
  • Team Riverside sports shirts for sporting events
  • Outdoor playground equipment
  • Art project for pupils to work with artist Jude Wadley to create new notice boards
  • Nurture room refurbishment
  • Grants towards school residential trips
  • Christmas tree and crackers
  • Leavers tee shirts
  • Furnishings for new library

What would YOU like FORS to do/finance next? Let us know and get involved – please get in touch via the school office.
