Welcome Back

We hope you have all enjoyed your first few days back in school.  The children have made a great start and we hope to have a fabulous term ahead.  We have welcomed our new reception children this week for their visits to school and they have been wonderful and are already settling in really well.

We would also like to welcome two new members of staff to the Stanley team. Mrs Wightman will be teaching across school, mainly covering classes in Reception, the infants and 5A on a Friday.  Mrs Langfield is our new Pupil Engagement Officer and will work with children and families across our school.

As Covid-19 continues to affect everyday life, please can we urge you to book a PCR test if you or your child experiences any of the Covid-19 symptoms.  Please keep us informed of any absences.

A letter with further details and advice was sent yesterday and can be found here.

Year 3/4 Playground

The playground continues to be out of use so please make arrangements to drop-off and collect your child from the Year 5/6 playground as you have been doing yesterday and today.

New Gate

We have a new pedestrian gate in use so the Office can be accessed. As you are already aware school now has one office, based in the Infant Department. If, for any reason, you are late for school children should be dropped off and signed in at this Office.

School doors open at 8.50am.  Please be reminded that children are not supervised by school staff up until doors open.


Please can we remind parents of the following:-

  • Car park to the front of Year 2 – please do not walk through the car park as a short cut or allow your children to run around this area while you wait. This could be dangerous
  • All children require a named bottle of drinking water
  • All children should bring a coat/jacket every day as the weather is very changeable
  • Please write your child’s name on any items of school clothing, bags etc
  • 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
  • Children must not walk down the field behind Reception to access the Junior Department, please use the designated routes into school

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.
