Welcome Back
We hope that you enjoyed the Easter break and trust that our pupils are feeling refreshed, ready for the start of the Summer Term. Hopefully, the ice and snow is now behind us and the weather will start to become warmer and sunnier.

School Uniform
Thank you for continuing to support our uniform policy – our children look smart and have a real sense of belonging! Now that the Summer Term is here, some children may prefer to swap their shirt and tie for a smart, white polo shirt or blue gingham dress. Full details of our uniform policy can be found in the Useful Information section of this website.

Remember - Nail polish, trainers and hair-styles that are more extreme are not appropriate for school, and we respectfully ask that some of the larger hair accessories are kept for weekends and parties. Thank you.

Easter Bingo
Our Easter Bingo was a great success, raising over £1000 for our school funds. It was great to see so many people! Once again, we say 'Thank you' to everyone who donated Easter eggs and to the staff who made the event happen.

Children playing brass instrumentsSpring Concert
We are immensely proud of all the children who took part in our Spring Concert, which featured pupils from across the whole school - from Year 3 to Year 6. Parents and families were treated to a selection of musical performances from the school band, our brass and wind ensembles, drum groups and choirs. We are grateful to everyone who helped to prepare the children, and to Miss Khan who made sure everything ran smoothly.

Michael's Day
Michael NeophytouFriday, 4th May is a very special day in school when we remember the birthday of Michael Neophytou. Many of you will be aware of Michael’s accident in 2007 and how his family have continued to support our school and commemorate his life with this annual event.

The competition this year is to design a mural for the CAFÉ (Care & Advice For Everyone Room) in school. While the room already has a ‘coastal’ theme, we are looking for ideas to create a mural that embodies why we are ‘PROUD to be Forefield.’ Mrs Brook has offered to paint the mural based on the winning entries and we think it would be an ideal way to capture the many wonderful things that happen in our school. We will officially launch the competition on the 4th May (which will also be a MUFTI Day) but children may wish to make an early start on their designs.

The Year 6 Swimming TeamSwimming Champions
Congratulations go to our Year 6 Swimming Team who represented Forefield in the Crosby and District Schools Swimming Gala, last month. The children gave their best in every event and their efforts really paid off, with the team taking the titles of girls winners and overall winners. We are very proud of their achievements. We are also grateful to Miss Cain for all her work with our champion swimmers.

Get Caught Reading Winners
As part of our World Book Day celebrations, pupils were invited to submit a photo of themselves reading in an unusual (but safe!) location. We saw children up trees, on horseback and even in a washing machine! After realising how difficult it would be to choose a winner from all the wonderful entries, our School Council were asked to decide instead! Looking for quirky or funny, they also found it difficult to decide. Eventually they selected two winners, Isabelle (Y5) and Ajinth (Y3), who received their prizes at a special visit to Pritchard's Bookshop.

WOW! At the end of the Spring term, the total for our Readathon was £512.50 – what an incredible amount for such a fantastic cause. 'Thank You' to everyone who read or sponsored someone to read. We are very proud of you all!
