Welcome back to school for the spring term! It was lovely to see all the children again after the Christmas break and we are also really pleased to have welcomed three new children to school – Ella, Freddie and Holly – we are sure they will be very happy here.
The after school clubs have all got off to a good start. Spaces are available for all the activities except Skate Skool so please let the office know if your child would like to join in.

Cl2 Pupils at our last inter school sports event

Next week children in Year 5 are attending the Sports Hall Athletics event organised by the Hyndburn & Ribble Valley School Sports Partnership. This is the second inter school event we are attending this year and this participation, together with other initiatives means we are on track to receive the Bronze School Games Mark award during this academic year. The School Games Mark rewards schools for increasing engagement in school games, developing competitive opportunities, broadening the range of opportunities, increasing and sustaining participation. As a school we are implementing actions for all these areas.
I have mentioned before about how you can raise money for school by doing virtually nothing! This is via The Giving Machine, a website/app through which donations are made to school for purchases made online for a whole host of popular retailers. You can read more about this here and we encourage you to sign up if you can. For the 12 months from January to December 2019 we raised £65.16 with only a small number of active givers. It would be great if we could double or triple that sum in the next 12 months. Please ask Amanda in the office if you need any more information and thank you in advance for your support.

Following Boris Johnson’s 8pm announcement we now know that as of midnight tonight the country has entered a new period of Lockdown, a Lockdown that includes the closure of school. 

School will be open for the children of Key Workers and for pupils who are deemed vulnerable. All pupils will be provided with work in order for them to keep learning. 

Tonight’s announcement was very short notice for you as parents and also for us as a Staff. Tomorrow, by 11am there will be three tasks on the school website for each Class to complete as their Tuesday learning. However, School will be closed to ALL pupils tomorrow. 


Staff, however, will be in school preparing for the rest of the Lockdown. Through tomorrow we will prepare school to make it safe for Key worker pupils and vulnerable children to return. 

We will send out a form for you to apply for a place in the Keyworker Bubbles and we will let you know more about how children will be learning remotely. We will do our very best to re-open to Key Worker children and vulnerable pupils by Wednesday. 

I am aware of how difficult this is for you all, School closing creates a multitude of problems for everyone but data surrounding this awful disease dictates that this is a necessary step. As ever, the safety and health of everyone must be a priority. 

Thank you for your continued support and we will be in frequent contact over the next few days. 

Many thanks

Claire Halstead
