Easter Bingo Evening
Thank you again for all of your kind donations of chocolate and Easter eggs; the Bingo prizes looked amazing! With all the tickets sold, we enjoyed a fabulous evening and raised £875 - a fantastic amount! Our Arts Week (17th- 21st June) will be funded through this money, so every child will benefit! Thank you to all the staff who helped the event to run so smoothly.

Sam Gayton
A Visit from Sam Gayton

Sam Gayton’s visit proved to be very popular! The energetic author entertained us in a special assembly, fuelling the children's collective imagination. Afterwards, he chatted with pupils as he signed books in our library. More photographs of his visit are available in our Photo Gallery.

Forefield Community LibraryForefield Community Library
We are pleased to announce that Forefield's Community Library is now OPEN! We'd like to say a huge 'Thank you' to everyone who has kindly donated books to this worthwhile cause; please keep them coming. Our new library is located just inside the school's main entrance. It is open Monday to Friday from 9 - 9.30am and 3 - 3.30pm*. Please drop in and take a look; you might just catch the reading bug!

(*Occasionally, the room may be in use for meetings. If in doubt, please check with our office staff. Thank you.)

Pritchard's Bookshop Loyalty Scheme
Pritchard’s Bookshop in Crosby Village is running a loyalty scheme for Forefield children and their families. For every £10 spent in store, if you mention Forefield, we will gain 1 point. For every 10 points gained, we will be credited with £5 towards books for school! Supporting our school and local businesses - two more good reasons to get reading!

More Fantastic Gymnastics
Following the success of our Y6 gymnasts, Year 4 pupils - Charlotte, Sam, Bree, James and Maisie-Rose - took part in another gymnastics competition at Chesterfield High School. Once again our pupils were great ambassadors for our school! In fact, Mrs Moorcroft (PE specialist at Chesterfield) said: “You can always tell the children who have come from Forefield. The level of PE that they do definitely shows when they come here – FJS children are often at a different level!”

Year 6 Makes a Splash
Congratulations to all the Year 6 pupils who participated in the Crosby and Litherland District Swimming Gala. Miss Cain and Mrs Falconer accompanied 14 of our children to Crosby Leisure Centre for an exciting and successful competition. The morning began with qualifying heats and the whole team managed to reach the finals – a magnificent achievement in itself! During the finals, ALL of our pupils achieved individual medals, coming either 1st, 2nd or 3rd! Well Done to all of them: PROUD to be Forefield!

Spring Concert
An hour of musical entertainment was provided by our choirs, drummers, brass and woodwind ensembles under the guidance of Mrs Harding, Mrs Hughes, Mrs Davies, Mrs Hadwin, Mrs Barton and Miss Burgoyne. Thank you to everyone who made the evening happen and the children who have worked so hard to learn their pieces! The event showcased the quality of our music provision and the eclectic mix of musical genres that the children enjoy performing!

School Holidays / Summer Uniform
School closes for the Easter holidays at 2.00pm on Friday 5th April and re-opens to pupils on Wednesday 24th, following Bank Holiday Monday and a staff training day on Tuesday 23rd.

When they return, children may choose to wear a summer uniform of a white polo shirt or blue gingham dress. Please remember that we specify black school shoes - not trainers or boots. Thank you for continuing to support our uniform policy.
