Friends of Rickley Park

Friend of Rickley Park (FORP) was established in June 2015 and was primarily set up to enrich children’s educational experiences at Rickley Park Primary school by raising money through various events to fund different projects and educational school trips.

This is Friends of Rickley Park’s way of giving something back to both the children and the staff for all the effort they make through the school year.

So far...

The Friends of Rickley Park have:

  • Regularly sold pre-loved school uniform
  • Run successful Ice-Cream Friday's during June and July
  • Organised a 5th Birthday celebration for the school (September 2015) - funded by a raffle with fabulous prizes!
  • Organised a Bags 2 School Collection (raising £50+) - next collection 29/1/16
  • Run a successful, exclusive night for students of Rickley Park at Safari MK
  • Served refreshments and mince pies at our Talk for Writing parent mornings and Carol Service
  • Organised a very successful Christmas Movie / Shopping Night
  • Provided all children in KS1 and KS2 with a Homework kit
