Who are the Friends of Ryefield (FOR)?
The Friends of Ryefield are a group of parents that meet regularly to plan and organise fun events for Ryefield children and families. Through this, we aim to raise funds for ‘extras’ for the school. Some of the events that FOR organise include:
Mother’s Day Shop
Father’s Day Shop
Every event that is hosted by FOR and supported by our wonderful parents has a substantial benefit to the education and development of all children at Ryefield Primary School. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.

How can you help?
FOR are always looking for new members or helpers. Any help, however small, is appreciated and will immensely benefit our community. From helping on a stall to donating items like cakes, toys and old uniforms, every contribution will be valued and help us benefit the students at Ryefield Primary School. If you have a specialist skill such as sewing, baking or photography, you could utilise this during one of our events and help make it a success.
We also hold regular PTA meetings at which you are welcome to share your ideas, or you can also get hold of any of us in the playground. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
