Recent Events

I am sure you were all horrified by the events which took place late on Monday evening in Manchester City Centre where at least 22 people have lost their lives. Many of them children.  They had their lives taken from them by a person who thought killing/injuring people was the right thing to do.


As parents and a school, we strive to ensure that we not only teach our children, Maths, English, History etc, but we teach them a moral compass where every life is precious and we respect each other.


As a school and a city, we all condemn the actions, but unite in ensuring we continue to teach our children the right way to act and behave. That love will always overcome evil and if we respect everyone, we are living our lives in the correct way.


Our own clothes day tomorrow, Thursday 25th May was originally to raise money for school funds. In light of the events, any monies raised will be donated to the Manchester Fund for families.


Tennis at Rack House

A huge well done to Frankie Amica, Paige Cunliffe, Aaliyah Doran and David Kosatik who represented the school at the Manchester South competition.  Our team won the Silver Award, coming second in the competition.  This is a fantastic achievement and congratulations to you all.


Miss MacPherson’s  Farewell Assembly – Thursday 25th May @ 2.45 p.m.

On Friday 26th May Miss MacPherson will be saying farewell to the school on a full-time capacity after nearly 25 years of dedicated service.

Miss MacPherson joined the school in September 1992 and has seen numerous changes over the years and has played a massive part in many of our children’s and parents lives.


We will be holding a farewell assembly tomorrow to which you are all invited to attend.


I am delighted to say that Miss MacPherson will return on a part-time basis later in 2017, to help support Year 6 pupils 2 days per week.




Miss Williams Year 4 Assembly

Can I remind parents that Miss Williams’ Class – Year 4 will have their assembly to celebrate the Queen’s official birthday on Friday 9th June at 2:40 p.m.



Half Term

School will close this Friday for half term and re-open at the usual time on Monday 5th June. Have a happy, safe and peaceful half-term!



Healthy Eating

We are trying to ensure that the school is a healthy area for all of our pupils. Some children have been coming into school with bags of sweets, chocolates and crisps. Can you ensure that these items are no longer sent into school for the children to eat at break times. There are plenty of alternative healthy snacks for children to eat instead of these sugar based items. In this way you can help support developing healthy ideas for our children, promote a good diet and save numerous trips to the dentist! Once again, I thank you for your support in this matter.

  1. Newhall Drive the pedestrian access to school is becoming dangerous to take children through as parents are driving on both sides enforcing pedestrians with their children to walk in the middle of the road.
    Also, on Monday/ Tuesday morning with the bins out on the pavements and cars parked on the other side, I had no choice other than walking in front of moving cars asking them to slow down. We have to think about poor weather things would be worse.
    I would suggest to the council to introduce double yellow lines along that small road for the safety of the pupils and their parents.
