Goodbye – As we say goodbye to our Year 6 pupils, we wish them all the best at Welshpool High School. We’ll be thinking about them in September!

We also say goodbye to Mr Marshall who has been with us for 3 years and thank him for his contribution to the school. Diolch yn fawr iawn.

Thank you – A huge thank you to all the Year 6s and their parents for the fantastic gift to school of cookery equipment and vouchers. We look forward to cooking and baking next term.

Pupil Reports – Thank you to all parents who have returned the slip to acknowledge receipt of their child’s report. Outstanding slips can be posted to school, or dropped in the letterbox next to the front door, during the first week of the holidays.

Parent Questionnaire – As stakeholders in our school, your views are important. Thank you to all parents who have completed this questionnaire. If you have not, please follow the link emailed to you last week to access our online questionnaire. This link will be open until July 31st 2019. All responses are anonymous.

ParentPay – Please ensure all payments are up to date.

Breakfast club payments are not part of the school budget and must be paid by 31st July. From September, Breakfast Club payments must be made in advance. We are not authorised to carry debts for Breakfast Club. Thank you for your co-operation.

Criw Cymraeg – Mae’r tedi yn mynd i ddosbarth 4 yr wythnos yma. Seren y wythnos oedd Jessica, dosbarth 3 a seren y staff oedd Mr Marshall. Llongyfarchiadau i bawb.

 Running Club – Congratulations to Elfida for completing 20 miles, Lily R and Hollie for completing 30 miles and gaining their bronze medal, Logan and Chloe for completing 40 miles and gaining their silver medal and Ryan for completing 50 miles and gaining his gold medal. The total distance run during the year, by the 29 pupils who attending running club, was a fantastic 665 miles. Da iawn.

Lexia – Well done to Frankie, Lily R and Ella for completing a level on Lexia. Lexia will be available to use over the summer holidays until your child reaches their target level. The teacher’s email to access Lexia is office@forden.powys.sch.uk

Attendance – Congratulations to Year 3, winners of Attendance Ted for overall attendance for the year with 98.2%. Our total attendance for the year was 95.4%. 37 pupils completed the year in The Green Zone for attendance (96% or greater). Of these, 3 pupils had 100% attendance, da iawn Harvey, William and Ellie S.

School Uniform – All school uniform can be obtained from Constructiv Clothing in Welshpool. Please ensure any new jumpers/cardigans are labelled with your child’s name before they wear them to school in September. If buying new shoes over the holiday, please ensure they are labelled and that your child can put them on by themselves. Girls’ ‘slipper’ style shoes are not suitable in school as they tend to fall off when running or skipping in the playground.

Forden School PE t-shirts are also available from Constructiv Clothing. In September, please ensure your child’s PE kit consists of a PE t-shirt, black shorts and plimsolls/trainers.

Thank you to all staff and parents who have contributed so much during the year to enhance the education and well-being of our pupils.

Have a safe and enjoyable summer. School starts back Tuesday 3rd September.
