Friends of Ridgeway Academy (FORA)
FORA is the PTA (Parent Teacher Association) for Ridgeway Primary Academy who run events and activities throughout the year to raise much needed funds for our school. Everyone is welcome to join and any help no matter how big or small is really appreciated.
FORA regularly raises thousands each year to support our school - funding new play equipment, additional books for reading corners, buying materials to ensure our grounds are maintained, as well as many other items for use by the children. Their support is vital in ensuring we can offer the 'extras' which bring colour and fun to the school day.
Each year FORA holds non-uniform days, quizzes, raffles, fêtes and fairs as well as a special visit from Santa! They are always looking for volunteers to support them, or new ideas to help raise more money for the school. FORA is a registered charity. They have their own Facebook page which can be access here
