Lifeline activities @ Park Hall

Year 6 pupils enjoyed their Lifeline 23 experience at Park Hall . Congratulations to the winning team:

Forden Bike Show

We look forward to seeing many of you at the Bike Show on Sunday. Come and have a cuppa and cookie in the Community Centre to support the school, or perhaps buy a raffle ticket to help raise funds for After School Club.

If you are available to help on the day, even for an hour, please contact Mrs Kershaw.

Governor Vacancies

We have two vacancies on our governing body for Community Governors. These can be any member of the community and do not need to have a connection to the school. If you know of someone in Forden who has the skills or experience required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school, and would like this opportunity to help direct the strategic direction of the school, please contact Mrs Fowler.
