- All children should bring a coat/jacket every day as the weather is very changeable
- Please note that the school lunch menu is subject to change. Although we will, of course, try our best to keep to the published menu (available on our website) but due to supply/delivery difficulties we may have to offer something different (any allergies, dietary requirements etc will be followed)
- If your child has a bump to the head we will text you – this is for general bumps, nothing to worry about. If the bump is a little more serious we will telephone you

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.
