Dear Parents

If you have not yet sent in your new menu choices for the menu starting 14 th November, please do so as soon as we return after the break, please note these have been amended so that there is a jacket potato option everyday. Thank you.


Non Uniform Day

Thank you for your donations today for non uniform,we have raised £52 which will be donated to the Mayors charity, North West Air Ambulance.


Parking Outside School

Could we respectfully remind everyone that the signs put outside school in the morning are for your childs safety, please do not move them or park without consideration. Thank you for your continued support.



Could we please remind everyone of our school uniform options –


Royal blue sweat shirt or cardigan (preferably with school crest), over light blue polo shirt (also with school crest). Both these can be ordered through school and cost £10 for cardigans, £9 for sweat shirts and £8 polo shirts. The Governors accept that parents may wish to purchase un-crested garments through local retailers. These should be the same colour as the school’s uniform colour.


Royal blue V-necked jumper or royal blue cardigan over a pale blue collar-shirt with school tie. (Cardigans are available in school priced £10) The ties can be ordered through school.
Both options are worn with mid grey skirt, grey pinafore dress, or grey shorts or long grey school trousers. In summer girls may wear a pale blue checked dress.
We do not allow trainers for day to day wear in school. Children should wear dark shoes and plain black, grey or white socks and avoid fashion styles.
All uniform must be clearly named.
Please ensure that if nail varnish is worn over the weekends or holidays it is removed before the start of the school week. Once again, thank you for your support.


Georges Marvellous Medicine Trip

This trip will take place on Wednesday 16th November for the whole school. The trip is being subsidised by School Fund and the Governors fund raising committee are paying for the coach. If you have not yet returned your permission slip and payment, please could you do so after the break. Thank you.


British Legion Poppy Appeal

As in previous years, we will be supporting this charity and selling poppies when we return after the half term break. We have also been given a school box which contains 3 types of bracelets – snap bands, friendship bracelets and silicone wristbands, these will be on sale for £1 each. There are also some poppy zip tags for 50p each. These items will still be on sale after the break and may be worn in school up to and including 11th November. Thank you.


Bag 2 School

Just a reminder that our bag to school collection will be on Monday 21st November, all bags need to by the main door outside school for 9am.
Please note, if you fill your bag and need another a black bin bag is fine.
School will receive a payment for the weight of the items donated, last time we received £112 for school funds.


Church Christmas Fair

Whilst you are clearing out your wardrobes and cupboards please bare in mind that the church will be holding its annual Christmas Fair on Saturday 19th November. They are accepting donations for raffle/tombola prizes; there will be a toy stall, jewellery stall and a good as new stall. Donations of any good quality saleable items can be brought to the school office as soon as possible and Mrs Kenyon will pass them on to church. Thank you.


Swinton Insurance Colouring Competition

Children have received a colouring sheet from Swinton Insurance this week. If you would like us to return it, please send it back to school by 16th November, otherwise please return the sheet directly to Swinton in Accrington. Thank you.


PE Kits in school

Over the half term break, would you please check that your childs pumps still fit as we have had a number of children complaining that they are too tight? Thank you.


Have a lovely half term break.
