Bring & Buy Sale

Thank you for all the donations towards the Bring & Buy Sale today. The children had a fantastic time shopping for bargains. They raised a total of £80 for Hope House Children's Hospice.


Congratulations to Max, Eloise, Izzy, Seth K, Corey, Ossie and Amelia B for completing a level on Lexia. Da iawn.

Primary School Admissions

Powys Local Authority has one primary school intake in each school year, which is at the beginning of the Autumn Term after a child has attained their 4th birthday.

The Primary School Admission Round for Powys learners born between 01/09/19 - 31/08/20 closes on Friday, 5 January 2024

Collen - Swimming

Next Thursday is Collen's final week swimming. During the session they will have the opportunity to try to achieve a distance badge. They will also be taught some life saving lessons. For this they will need to bring a pair of shorts and T-shirt that they can wear in the pool over their swimming costume.

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.
