Good afternoon all
Firstly, I do hope everyone is well and you all have the supplies you need whilst we are all taking steps to self-isolate where possible.
Secondly, to all the families who have been able to make alternative arrangements for child care - thank you.
To all the front-line staff and key workers, thank you for all that you are doing. Your children have settled well today and are enjoying a range of activities. Thank you to my staff who have come to work to enable this to happen.
If you are a key worker, please ensure school knows when your child/children will be accessing their child care place so provision can be planned.

WELL DONE Y5!
Thank you to all the parents who came to watch our Y5 assembly all about Online Safety. We had special guests from the police - Tony our PCSO and the Crime and Police Commissioner for Lancashire. The children read out their poetry, rapped, did 2 drama performances and we even had a quiz. They delivered their message in a fun and interactive way for the whole school. I was extremely proud of how confident they all were and impressed on how hard they had worked. Remember: Stay SMART!
Isaac Cunningham approached me to ask if we could do a fundraising day to raise money to support the Muscular Distrophy charity. All the children came to school wearing bright colours and donated money to support Isaac.
Isaac completed an indoor sky dive and managed to raise a whopping £638.30. Well done Isaac!
Year 4 Poetry performance
WOW! I was so impressed by how Y4 led our assembly today. The poetry that had been written and recited was truly fantastic. If you managed to get to watch, I'm sure you'll agree that they were absolutely brilliant! Well done to all the children.

PGL - What a day!
I was fortunate enough to visit our Y6 children on Tuesday at Boreatton Park. The weather was glorious.
The children are challenging themselves, working in teams and just being their brilliant selves!
I saw lots of the group activities, such as; trapeze, giant swing, tunneling, sensory trail, archery and fencing. I was very proud of all the children as they took on these challenges, so obviously I had to have a go too...
We have our new mission statement and 5 new school rules:
Punctuality – please ensure your child/ren are on the school playground for no later than 8:50am to ensure a prompt start to lessons.
Uniform – please ensure your child/ren have the correct uniform and PE Kit. Trainers are not part of our uniform and earrings should be covered.

Headteacher Pupil Interviews.
I have had a wonderful morning talking to children from each year group asking them their views about our school. It is such a pleasure to hear such positive comments about lessons and our school environment. I also received some great ideas about improvements we could make in the future. Thank you to all the children involved!
Yesterday I was very fortunate to receive an invitation to Pre-School's Royal Tea Party.
The party began at 10:30am today. Myself and Miss Berry have enjoyed cucumber sandwiches, cake and a glass of fizz (lemonade)! We also watched the children perform the Waltz. It was wonderful to see all the children dressed so smartly for this Royal occasion.
This morning I have been walking around our school. To say that I am proud is an understatement...the children are working so hard and the behaviour is fabulous! I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
