Welcome back to the final part of this school year and the final stretch for our Year 6s!

We have updated the Year Group Newsletters (links below), so please have a good read through the ones that link to your children as these will contain information about your child’s learning and dates for upcoming events etc.


Changeable Weather

As the weather is very changeable at the moment, please continue to send your child to school with a coat or jacket every day.

There will hopefully be more sunny days approaching so we would ask that, from next week, you send your child in with the following items (all clearly named):

  • Sun cream – your child will need to be able to apply this themselves (we recommend a roll-on type as they may find this easier to apply)
  • Sun hats
  • Lots of water to drink

Competition


Blackpool Teaching Hospitals Design a Cake Competition

As part of NHS Big Tea festivities, one lucky child will get the chance to design cupcakes for Blackpool Teaching Hospitals to celebrate their 74th birthday on the 5th July!

One lucky school will even win an afternoon with England Footballer Jordan Henderson!

DESIGNS WILL BE JUDGED BY BLUE SKIES HEAD OF FUNDRAISING, KILA REDFEARN, AND LOCAL CAKE COMPANY DEAD GOOD BAKES, WHO WILL ALSO BRING THE WINNING CREATION TO LIFE. IT’LL THEN BE PRESENTED TO BLACKPOOL TEACHING HOSPITALS AS PART OF THE NHS’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS.

How to enter:

COMPLETED DESIGNS SHOULD BE EMAILED BACK TO BFWH.BLUESKIES@NHS.NET (ALONG WITH THE CHILD’S NAME AND AGE). PLEASE MARK THE EMAIL “NHS BIG TEA CAKE COMPETITION”.

Reminders

  • Please do not bring any dogs, of any size, whether carried or on a lead on to the schools

  • Sandals are not appropriate, or safe, footwear for school

Operation Encompass now operates throughout Lancashire police force. It helps police and schools work together to provide emotional and practical help to children. The system ensures that when police are called to an incident of domestic abuse, where there are children in the household who have experienced the domestic incident, the police will inform the school (Miss Manson) before the child or children arrive the following day. This ensures that the school has up to date relevant information about the child’s circumstances and can enable support to be given to the child.
