Dear Parents/Carers,                                                                                                                                    Friday, 17 June 2022



Our Reception children visited the Blue Planet Aquarium this week and learnt lots about creatures that live in the sea. The staff at the aquarium pointed out that our children had excellent behaviour and manners throughout the trip.




Well done to the Chamois Class (Y5) and the Gecko Class (Y4) for winning the punctuality and attendance awards last half term. They have had their non-uniform day today. Keep up the good work!



Just a reminder that we cannot allow children to give out chocolates or sweets for their birthdays. This is because we have a large number of children in school with a variety of allergies. Instead, you could buy a book for the school library and a label will be put in the book, stating that it has been donated on behalf of your child’s birthday.



Late Gate

Two ladies from Lancashire County Council’s attendance team have been visiting school this week, and will continue to do so over coming weeks, to monitor why we are having so many children arriving to school late.

All children need to be in school by 8.50am.

This week 11hours of school has been missed, due to children arriving at school late.

The overall percentage of attendance this week is 95.1%. Our target is at least 96%.


Sports Days

Parents/carers are invited into the school playground to watch the sports days.




Reception                     Tuesday 5th July from 9.30am

Year 1 and Year 2       Tuesday 28th June from 9.30am

Year 3 and Year 4       Thursday 30th June from 9.30am

Year 5 and Year 6       Thursday 30th June from 1.30pm

Parents/carers should arrive through the school playground. The gates will be open 10 minutes before each event is due to start.


Hot weather

Please ensure that your child brings fresh water to school each day in a clear bottle, marked with their name. As the weather is also very warm, you may like to put sun-cream on your child before they come to school.

We will continue to sell ice lollies on days when the weather is nice, but it just depends on us being able to get enough stock.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Sarah Bell
