Spanish Postcard

This week’s postcard has been sent to Ashton and Connor of 6W for working excellently as a team and their brilliant effort on conjugating verbs.

Wildcats

Blackpool Community Trust will be running a Wildcats After School Club for any girls in Years 1 and 2.  This will not strictly be a football session, but aims to engage the children in a fun, friendly environment.  This free club will run on Thursdays, starting on 12th April and finishing on 19th July, from 3.15 until 4.30 pm each session.  Places are limited to 20, on a first come, first served basis, so please collect a registration form from the Infant Office.

Streetdance

A professional Street Dancing teacher will be giving three free lessons to Junior children after school on 13th, 20th and 27th April from 3.15 to 4.30 pm.  Places are limited to 30 on a first come, first served basis so please collect a registration form from the Junior Office.

Design-a-Sticker Competition

Lancashire Police are holding a competition to design a sticker that will be given out to children at events all over South Shore.  The sticker will have the words “helpful and respectful” on it and they want children to draw a picture of what they think a police officer should look like.  There is a prize and certificate for the winning entry and it will appear on the Police Facebook page.  Entries should be submitted to school by 16th April and an entry form can be downloaded here or obtained from the school office.

Sickness and Diarrhoea

We have a lot of bugs in school at present and the NHS guidelines state that children should be kept off school for 48 hours after symptoms have stopped.  This is to prevent the spread of infection.  Please click here to read the guidelines and advice on treatment.

Administration of Medicines

Please remember that only prescription medicines can be administered in school and these must be handed in to the school office in the original bottle.  Parental consent and clear instructions need to be provided on a school consent form.  School staff cannot administer over-the-counter medicines, such as cough bottles or pain killers.

Phone Messages

We would be obliged if parents could make any necessary arrangements with their children before school to minimise the amount of messages that need to be passed on during the school day.
