Reedley Spelling Bee!


Congratulations to our Spelling Bee Champions: 

Aadam (Yr 2) and Saleyha (Yr 4)!

The Spelling Bee competition included children from thirteen schools.  These were whittled down to four finalists for each year group.

The final was held on Thursday 28th June at The Ace Centre. Bertie Bee from BFC was in attendance to offer his support!

The competition was fierce and tensions were high, with a dramatic tie break between two year four competitors.  We are proud of all of the children that competed in the competition and hope to launch this again next year so the champions can defend their title!

The Spelling Bee Champions (and school) are listed below:

Year 1 Champion - Heidi (St. John's C of E Primary School, Cliviger)

The Champions received a trophy, a certificate, an Amazon voucher and a badge.  The finalists received a certificate and a badge.

Thank you to all parents who attended.

Author Visit!


The children really enjoyed our visit from best selling author, Ben Lyttleton! His books focused on non-fiction topics that linked closely with football.  These included answers to questions such as: Can you play football on Mars?  What is a magic sponge?

The children looked at subjects such as Biology, Zoology and Physics - as you can tell from the photographs, they seem to have learnt a lot!


Reedley in the News!


Check out our new 'Reedley in the News!' page. 

We have had several articles published in the Burnley Express, Nelson Leader and Pendle Today.

Reedley School received a visit from Ofsted on 19th April 2017.

I am delighted that the inspector agreed with my evaluation that Reedley is a good school and that he agreed with my priorities to improve the school even further.

The full letter can be found below but here are some extracts that I feel capture the essence of Reedley!

"Pupils demonstrate extremely positive attitudes to learning in their lessons and around school. They say that they enjoy their learning at school and that their teachers help them to do their best. Pupils speak highly of the school. They said, 'Everyone is caring and we all care for each other.' "

A number of parents say that it is "......a really great school."

Staff say that the leaders are "...very inspirational and provide them with excellent training opportunities."

"The achievement of pupils at both key stages in writing is good. Handwriting and presentation is of a high standard.The proportion of pupils achieving age-related and higher than age-related expectations is above national averages."

Thank you to the parents and children who spoke with the inspector during the visit - you clearly made a great impression.
