Harvest Donations

Narwhal class did a super job on Monday of launching our Harvest appeal for Porch foodboxes.  The collection point is in the main entrance until next Friday so please come and drop off any donations there.  We have challenged ourselves to see how many boxes we can fill!  We have already made a great start so thank you!

Parents meetings

Appointments available 1.30-3pm and 3.30-6.30pm-to be booked online through the

ScoPay app.   A crèche will be available for school age children for the afternoon sessions.

Children will remain in school until 3pm if you have an afternoon appointment so there is

 no disruption to their learning in class.

 Plea for help!

Are you a builder, joiner or just quite handy with DIY and are willing to volunteer a little bit of time for a very good cause!  We would love some help to improve our outdoor areas for our goats and hens.  This could be after school or on a weekend. Please get in touch if you think you could help our animals out…thank you!


Just a reminder that if your child wishes to have a bagel snack at morning break, please send 50p on a Monday for the week.  If you are not sending the 50p, please remember to send your child with a healthy snack from home that they can have.

Covid updates

Please find attached some further updated information that we have been sent from Bury Council following an increase in Covid cases across the borough. Bury are advising that children in Year 3-6 who live with someone who has tested positive for Covid, to do daily lateral flow tests before coming into school, for the full 10 days of the isolation of the positive case. As long as their LFT is negative they can continue to come into school.   If your child is a close contact of a positive case in school, we will notify you so that you can organise a PCR test.
