New Reception Starters

We would like to wish all the new reception pupils and their parents/carers a warm welcome to Stanley.


We apologise that some parents have been unable to give consent to the use of Seesaw on Parent Pay.  If this is the case, we would be obliged if you would give your consent in writing as soon as possible.


Only stud earrings are acceptable within school but please REMOVE these on your child’s P.E. day as these cannot be removed by a member of staff and if your child cannot remove the earrings themselves they will not be permitted to take part in the lesson.

If your child wears anything else they will be asked to remove them and bring them home.


Please send all children to school with an appropriate coat as the weather is very changeable at the moment and is getting quite cold.

PE Days

PE days for each year group are listed on their newsletter.  If there are any changes we shall send out a text in advance.

Drop off/Collection Reminder for Y4 & Y5 Parents

Parents/carers are welcome on the junior yards but please remember to follow social distancing guidelines. Please do not walk down past the play equipment, towards the classroom double doors in the morning or the afternoon, wait for your child on the Y3/4 or Y5/6 playgrounds. Thank you.


We would like to remind parents/carers to please park responsibly and adhere to the parking restrictions in place. We have had reports of a number of cars parking on double yellow lines, corners of roads as well as the bus stop areas. This is not only irresponsible but also dangerous for the children and their families coming into/leaving school.

Christmas Card Competition

Our local MP, Scott Benton is going to be sending Christmas cards to constituents who live in Blackpool South and he is inviting primary-aged children to design the front cover.

This is a great opportunity for our students to show off their creative skills and for the winner, and their school, to be recognised on their Member of Parliament’s Christmas card.

Entries should be portrait style and the general theme is ‘Blackpool at Christmas’.

Once complete, entries should be dropped off at either the Infant or Junior Office.

Operation Encompass

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.
