Due to NUT strike action on Tuesday 5th July, the school will be open ONLY for pupils in year group Y4 who should attend school at the usual times. (This is because Mr Costas-Walker is not in the NUT union and therefore is not entitled to take part in the strike action.) I have spoken with Mrs Hayton and Mrs Brown and CLASP/KIDZCO breakfast and after school clubs will not operate on Tuesday 5th July.
I appreciate that closing the school in years R/1/2/3/5/6 will cause inconvenience for families and it is not a decision that I have taken lightly. Please note, you will see members of the non-teaching staff in school on the 5th July as they are obliged to work their contracted hours. However, they cannot be directed to provide teaching cover for striking colleagues.
We are sorry the weather caused us to postpone our sports day this week.
Sports day will now be held on Monday 4th July. FS/Y1/Y2 in the morning (around a 9.15 start) and Y3/4/5/6 in the afternoon (around a 1.15 start)

Our New Kitemarks!|
We are delighted to show you our brand new kitemarks!
Behaviour Quality Mark:
On Tuesday 20th September we were assessed by an external body who looked at our behaviour in and around school. She visited many lessons, spent time with children in class and spent time outside on the playground at breaktimes and lunchtimes!
Sainsbury's School Games Quality Mark:
On Monday 16th November we were visited by Mr Loughran who is the South Ribble Sports Co-ordinator for P.E and Sport. He assessed the schools involvement in Competition and how we teach and engage children in physical activities. We were thrilled with our 'SILVER' judgement and have gone from having no kitemark to Silver! Here comes Gold next year!! Mr Costas-Walker would like to thank all the children for their hard work in P.E and especially all the children who have represented our school in Level 2 and 3 Competitions - you're all superstars!
R.E ~ Prayer Space Day|
On Wednesday 7th October 2015 we held our first 'Prayer Space' day! This involved all of our 7 classes taking part in creative ways to pray. We had 7 spaces which each class had the opportunity to spend time and reflect in. Our wonderful Year 6 children led each Prayer Space and supported their brothers and sisters in school. A wonderful day was had by all!
Today we enjoyed a head teacher's breakfast to celebrate 2 children from each year group who make positive behaviour choices (as well as enjoying lots of croissants!)
Our admission policy for pupils starting school from September 2016 can be found here.
As we prefer to offer parents a more personal touch and to see the school at work on a "normal" day, we do not hold a one off open morning, but offer you a tour of school in either a small group or individually. These sessions are available on Monday mornings at 11.15 from 7th September to 7th December. We look forward to meeting you.

How we use our pupil premium funding and its impact|
Impact of pupil premium 2015
The total pupil premium for the financial year 2015-2016 is £38,463. It is being used to fund additional levels of staffing to ensure individual needs are being met (learning, social, nurture) and to provide financial support for school visits to ensure that all pupils can benefit from out of school learning or from expert visitors to the school where that is beneficial to the curriculum unit being studied. It has also been used to fund extra-curricular provision in a variety of contexts.
The impact of the deployment of these funds has been 96% pupils making expected or accelerated progress in reading/writing/maths from their individual starting points and 85% of pupils in receipt of the pupil premium grant are in line or above age related expectations in terms of attainment. No pupil premium pupils have attendance below 85%.
Impact of Sports funding
Please look at the impact of the deployment of these funds and their impact at our school.
