Christmas Dinner

All pupils enjoyed the opportunity to eat together on Thursday. Congratulations to the winners in the hat competition - some were very creative.

School Play

We will hold two performances of our Christmas play 'Superstar' on Thursday 14th December. The afternoon performance will begin at 2pm and the evening performance at 6pm. Pupils will need to be back in school at 5:45pm in the evening. Lucky programmes will be for sale on the door - £1.00 each.


Congratulations to Bailey, Henry, Evelyn G and Joe 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

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.
