Our PTA, the Friends of Riverside

Friends of Riverside are a group of parents and teachers who raise money to support key school projects, and provide fun events for the children out of School hours. We are a charitable organisation (our constitution can be found below)

We put on a number of activities during the school year such as Discos, Presents for Parents, Christmas fair, quiz nights, community bonfire night, sponsored walk, summer fair. Photos of our events can be found below, our Summer Fair in 2019 raised over £3000 for the school, thank you to everyone that attended.

Supporting Tadcaster

Riverside Friends of School proud to donate £125 to support the work of the Tadcaster Flood Support and Fundraising Group.

IMG 0139

The Flood Support & Fundraising group would like to say a huge thank you to Riverside School for their very kind donation of £125. This money will pay for one of our monthly social groups, where we offer support and advice for those affected most by the floods. The money provides a hot meal and drinks for those who come along and the opportunity for those who are still not back in their properties to catch up with friends and neighbours.
We are overwhelmed by the support from the community so once again thank you for choosing to donate funds to our group.
