PTA - Friends of Rainford CE Primary School (FORCES)

The Friends of Rainford C E Primary School (FORCES) was formed when the school opened in 1990. The aim of the association is to provide social and fundraising events. Events are arranged for children, families or adults. All friends and parents are invited and encouraged to participate.

Past events include Sponsored Bounces, Family Quiz Night, Bingo, Easter Trail, Big Night Out, Village Coffee Mornings and the Summer Gala. The organising committee meets regularly at the Derby Arms. Any parent or carer of a child at the school is invited to attend the meetings.

FORCES is very well supported and raises much-needed funds, which enhance the education of our children. In past years, FORCES have provided sports equipment, computer software and hardware, a new reading scheme, Science, History, Geography and R.E. schemes and have virtually stocked the school libraries single-handed.

Recently they have provided a large range of literacy and numeracy resources, £3000 worth of new furniture towards the refurbishment of our reception classrooms and £10,000 towards the cost of the computer suite. In the past year they have commissioned some seating for the playground and a wooden gazebo which can be used as an outdoor classroom.

The current Chair of FORCES can be contacted via the School Office.
