Welcome to the website of Forge Integrated Primary School. The site is packed with information about who we are, what we do and where you can find us... so please explore! Should you want to ask us about anything, then use the 'Contact Us' button at the top right of the screen and we'll get back to you as soon as we can!
Notice: Week begining 10th March - We have been experiencing some difficulties with our IT systems which has been diminishing our ability to keep the website up to date as effectively as possible. This will be resolved in the coming weeks but we are likely to have further intermittent slow periods. We can always keep Facebook and Twitter current thanks to 3G so if you find this page a few days behind check those sources for the most up to date info!
Maths Week 10 - 14 March 2014
It's Maths Week at Forge this week so we'll be crunching numbers and throwing shapes and generally homing in on all things mathematical this week. We'll keep you up to date with regular website and socail media updates.
New Courses for Parents Timetable Published by Middletown Centre for Autism
Parents of children with Autism can take advantage of free training through the Middletown Centre for Autism. The centre is based in Middletown, Co. Armagh and courses for parents run both at the centre and also at other venues including Glenveagh School at Harberton in Belfast. Details of courses can be found on their website here.
THANKYOU for your sensible driving and parking. Please remember to take great care as you drive along Rosetta Avenue, Carolan Road and through Wellington College. There are large numbers of children and young people on foot at peak times. Please be very alert to where the zebra crossings within the Wellington site are and take great care when driving over them. We have had reports of drivers continuing over the crossings when pedestrians have already set foot on them. We've also heard of vehicles being parked in such a way as to obscure drivers' view of the crossing or block pedestrian access to it. DON'T DO THIS!
If you haven't already done so please read the letter here and be aware of the need for more care and patience while we get the work completed.
To all those parents, pupils, staff and associates who completed our School Evaluation Survey. The results will feed into our School Development Plan and we hope to publish a summary of the survey results and the new developement plan in early October.
We are encouraging as many parents as possible to register for our text & email update system and to follow our Facebook and Twitter feeds. It saves paper, reduces the cost of copying and cuts down on the frustrating 'Lost Note Syndrome' that afflicts so many of us! Get in touch with us at the office and make sure we have valid mobile phone and email details for you.
We do want all of our online lives to be safe and comfortable and we have a number of policies regarding the use of IT and the internet in school. Social Media is a great way to communicate if we make sure we our conduct is positive, polite and age appropriate. Parents who do wish to engage with us via social media should read our Forge on Facebook policy. Please take on board the spirit of this policy and note that while Facebook steals the glory in the title thanks to its alliteration potential it also applies to Twitter!
