Due to the winter weather please make sure your child brings a waterproof coat to school every day as the rain sometimes comes on during playtime before the children have a chance to get in.  All items brought into school, including hats, gloves and scarves, should be clearly named.

Exemplar Education

Next week we will be sending home leaflets from Exemplar Education.  We would be obliged if you would return the reply slip even if you are uninterested, as school received a donation based on the number of total slips returned.

Blackpool Breakfast Scheme

As part of the ongoing monitoring of the Blackpool Council’s Free School Breakfast Programme in Blackpool, once a term we will be asking pupils attending this school some simple questions regarding what they had for breakfast on a certain date.  We will also be using data we hold on children within the school as part of this study.  All information will be aggregated, and no one child, or their answers, will be identifiable within the analysis.  If, for any reason, you wish for your child not to take part in the monitoring, can you please let us know, and we will ensure that they are not included.
