Welcome to the Summer 2021 term!
As texted out to parents/carers earlier this week, the new Year Group Newsletters for this term have been added to our website, linked below (paper copies can be made available at the Infant/Junior office).
These newsletters include information on what your child will be learning this term, any changes to P.E. days, book swap days, homework etc. Please ensure you have read them.
This week we recorded 61 late arrivals. School doors open at 8.50am with registration at 9am. Please make sure your child arrives on time.
There will be no access to the Infant Office on Monday 19th April between 9.30am and 1pm. If your child arrives after 9.30am or you need to talk to a member of office staff in person during this time, please visit the Junior Office. The Infant Office can still be contacted by telephone during this time.
Junior Team Colour House Points
Last term the Blue Team won the most House Points and they have chosen to have a non-uniform day. Your child will be aware which Team they are in, and will be reminded next week.

Please do not send your child in non-uniform if they are not a member of the Blue Team.

Dunelm School Giveaway

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.
