Congratulations to Izzy, Tia-May, Evan and Cameron for completing a level on Lexia. Da iawn.

Lifeline activities @ Park Hall

On Wednesday 20th September, Year 6 pupils will be attending a Lifeline activity session at Park Hall, Oswestry. This is arranged and funded by Oswestry Rotary Club for all year 6 pupils from schools in the area. Pupils work in small groups to complete a range of challenges.

They will need a packed lunch/snack/drink and a coat. They will return to school at 4:00pm.

Water Bottles

Please do not send juice in your child's water bottle (unless there is a medical reason). Water bottles should not be carried in their book bag. We have had a number of incidents where water or juice has leaked over pupil's reading books and ruined them.

Forden Bike Show

Please support this event, It is our biggest fundraiser. Last year the school received a fantastic £2000 which helped fund activities and resources for all pupils in school.

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