Parent, Teacher and Friends Association



Our PTFA is a registered charity that organises events throughout the year to raise money for the school. Money is spent in a variety of ways to improve the education of children at River. The PTFA is not just a fund raising body; it also assists in organising parental help in school and brings parents and teachers together in social events.

All parents are automatically considered members of the PTFA and invited to play a full part in its activities. All are invited to its Annual General Meeting and can seek election to the committee; new committee members are always welcome – why not come along and join us? It’s a great way to meet new people and to get to know the school.

If formally helping to organise events is not for you, please remember you can make an invaluable contribution by supporting our events. Perhaps you could help by occasionally running stalls, selling raffle tickets or helping at school event? Any support you can give will help your child.

Father Christmas visits River!





The PTFA are delighted to have received funds from the Co-op Community 'Fund for our Forest School Project' as well as recently receiving money for books. 

Every time members shop at the Co-op, 1% of what they spend on selected own-brand products and services goes to the Co-op Local Community Fund. Thank you to the Co-op and every Co-op member who nominated us as their chosen charity – it really does make a difference!
