We had 67 lates this week, which is disappointing. No matter if your child is 2 minutes or 50 minutes late, it has a negative effect on their learning.

If your child is late they must be brought into the Office by yourself and a reason provided.

Thank you to all the parents who regularly bring their children to school on time and well done to Class 4M who were the only class to all arrive on time, all week.

Travelling Book Fair

The Travelling Book Fair is now in school and is being hosted in the Infant Hall after school until 4.00pm.

The remaining days are as follows (in order to accommodate all of our year groups, we will be inviting year groups in the following way):

  • Friday 18th March                   Years 3, 4, 5 and 6
  • Monday 21st March                 Reception, Years 1 and 2
  • Tuesday 22nd March               Years 3, 4, 5 and 6

Please note that payment in cash would be preferred, so it would be helpful if you could come with some loose change. However, the ability to pay by card may be available on the day.

Red Nose Day

‘Wear Something Red’ for Red Nose Day was a great success today and it was wonderful to see so many children involved.

Many thanks for all donations received through our ParentPay page (the link has been texted out to you this week as donations are still welcome) and you can still donate directly at Please do not send any money into school with your child.

Head Lice (Nits)

We have had reports of several cases of head lice within school. Please check your child’s hair, and treat if necessary.

Carr Hill High School Dance Display

Tickets are now on sale for Carr Hill’s Dance Display. They have had to have a break from this event over recent years, so are incredibly excited to bring back this amazing celebration of Dance. The dance show will be full of new and exciting routines, it’s sure to be an excellent show!

Tickets are on sale now, and can be arranged by emailing, who will then put the tickets on the door of the evening.


Please, as always, stay vigilant for the symptoms of Covid but also bear in mind that we have children testing positive that have experienced more gastro-type symptoms – stomach aches, vomiting, diarrhea.

The current guidance is to isolate for five days from the start of symptoms. You can do a rapid lateral flow test from 5 days after your symptoms started (or the day you had the test if you do not have symptoms) and another the next day.

To protect the wider Stanley community, please continue to test where necessary and inform us of any positive results. Thank you.

PMHW Drop In Information

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.
