A reminder that children must be booked onto Breakfast Club before 3pm the day before. Today 7 children turned up at the door who were not booked on.

In future, anyone that turns up at the door and wasn't booked on, will unfortunately be turned away as we plan our staff ratios based on the bookings we have by 3pm the day before.

Breakfast club is becoming increasingly popular and places are limited, so we do advise that you book as early as possible as there are many days that we are now full.

We do appreciate that on occasion there are unplanned circumstances that lead to parents needing to book onto breakfast club after 3pm the day before. Where possible we always try to accommodate this, but if you do find yourself in this position and it is outside the school day, please email and we will advise if it is possible for them to attend.

Thank you for your support with this and if you have any queries please do get in touch via 01772 726408 or

Thank you

School Council Update

During the last School Council meeting, all the children fed back their ideas on what they should raise money for and held a vote for which idea they should focus on! The winning vote went to raising money to aid the library refurbishment which will be happening towards the end of the school year. The children are hoping to raise money to invest in some new books, chairs and cushions to create a cosy and inviting area of school where children are able to spend their time to immerse themselves in the world of both fiction and non-fiction literature. 

The children have decided to hold an out of uniform day towards the end of half-term and ask for a donation from parents to aid their fundraising efforts. Then next term they are hoping to run a talent contest which will be open to the whole school to audition, and the best acts will perform to the whole school or key stage, depending on how many children pass the auditions. The school council are still confirming their plans, but they are likely to be selling either tickets for the event or raffle tickets to the children to win some sort of prize/reward. 

Parking around school

Please take the time to read the following leaflet regarding parking safely around schools. This has been supplied by Lancashire County Council and outlines why it is important to park safely around school. This leaflet also gives a contact number, a web address and an email address to report any parking concerns if anyone should see them.
Could I please also remind parents that the car park should not be used by parents for dropping off and collecting your children (at 8:45am, 3:05pm and at 4pm). If you are dropping your child off at breakfast club and you wish to use the car park you must arrive between 7:30 and 7:50am. Anyone arriving after 7:50am is not permitted to use the car park.
