Dear Parents/Carers



Thank you for all of your support and cooperation throughout this very challenging school year.  You have all been amazing and followed the procedures we needed to put into place, even when this has inconvenienced you, and for this we are exceptionally grateful.


Painite Times Table Award

You may be aware that I introduced a new times table award called ‘Painite’ earlier this term for children in Y4 upwards. Many children have been working towards this and Zainab Arif from Y6P was the first child to achieve this on Wednesday. She has proved that, although it is challenging, it is possible! Well done Zainab!


Sue Dean Writing Award

Each term we award a trophy in honour of Sue Dean, who was a Lancashire Literacy Consultant for English. This term, Maira Mustafa from Year 1 achieved the award for making exceptional progress in her writing. Well done Maira!


Reading Awards

All of our children are strongly encouraged to take part in our reading awards and certificates are awarded weekly for achieving each level. At the end of the year, Phase Leaders selected one child from each phase to receive a £10 book voucher for producing high-quality book reviews as part of this scheme.

The winners were:

Reception: Laiba Riaz Rec

Early Reedley: Zainab Ahmed Y2

Middle Reedley: Azaan Qasim Y3

Upper Reedley: Maheen Sheraz Y5


Arrangements for September

School reopens after the summer on Thursday 2nd September.

We will advise you of any necessary procedures for the playground, when you arrive on the first day back.


Parents of our new Reception children have been given details of their starting times.

From September, our school day will start at 8.50am. Children must be in school by 8.50am or they will be late and will be missing their lessons.


School Finish Times from September

  • Reception children to be collected at 3.15pm
  • Year 1 and Year 2 children to be collected at 3.20pm
  • Year 3 children to be collected at 3.25pm
  • Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 children to be collected at 3.30pm


We aim to return to a system where all children are collected at 3.30pm as soon as possible and will do as soon as we feel it is safe to do so. However, these arrangements will be in place initially in the new school year.


Thanks again for your support and cooperation and I wish you all a happy and healthy summer break. Please remember HANDS, FACE, SPACE and FRESH AIR and remember to look out for each other.



Thank you for your support,

Mrs Sarah Bell
