Welcome to the Friends of Ripley Nursery School (FORNS) section

All parents, carers, guardians and staff welcome to attend meetings. Please don't be shy, we would love to see you there!


What does FORNS do?


Our motto is ‘Many Hands Make Light Work’ and we are always trying to encourage new parents to join us. You can be involved as much or as little as you like. We hold regular meetings, but we understand that sometimes it is hard to come to all of them. Therefore, you could take one project on board and make it your own or put your name forward to help with at least one activity during the year.


We are passionate about our school and helping the children be the best they can be. Over the years we have raised money to help the school in numerous ways, FORNS plays an important role in making our school a fun place for the children and their families. But we cannot do it alone. We need all the help that we can get to make every event a succesful one. We are extremely lucky to have so many parents and friends of FORNS who are generous with both their time and resources. This has enabled us to hold some really successful fundraising initiatives like:-




*Christmas Fair's 

*Summer Fair's

*Easter Fun Week

*Bags 2 School

*Visit from White Post Farm

*Flower Display Workshop


And much more.....
