School News | Friday 2nd March 2018


Our focus for Collective Worship next week will be the Agony in the Garden.  Classes 8 and 2 will lead our reflections. In class, we will continue to focus on prayer with our Lenten Prayer Charts.


Please ask your child who their Lenten Buddy is – every adult and child in school is paired together.  During Lent, these new buddies will find time to share kind words and deeds with one another.


Please can you make your contribution to our Salford Diocese Building Fund if you haven’t already.  We ask for a voluntary contribution of £10.00.


Our school car park is for staff only and should only be used by parents for driving up to the top and dropping off.  A number of parents are parking in a space on the car park at around 8am and getting out of cars to drop children off, please can I ask you not to do this.


Please call in to speak to your child’s class teacher on Mon 5th 3-4pm, appointments not necessary.


We will have Stations of the Cross services on Thurs 8th.  Infants will take part in a service at school in the Hall, Juniors will walk to church for a service with Fr Michael at 1.30pm.  Please join us at church.


Some of our girls will take part in a tournament at Spirit of Sport after school on Tues 6th, our boys will take part in the Hartley Cup on Wed 7th at St John’s, Padiham.  Good luck to all.


This year our Coffee Morning will take place on Sun 18th March 10.30am-12.30pm.  Please join us for lots of Easter treats and activities – see separate flyer for details.

(SEAL – Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning)

This half-term our SEAL theme has been ‘Going for Goals’.  Each class focussed on the following skills:

  • taking responsibility – for good and bad
  • waiting for what we want
  • keeping on ‘keeping on’ and showing bounce-back-ability
  • setting goals and then achieving them

School staff nominated the following pupils who each received their trophy in assembly on Monday.  We are very proud of them.  Ours thanks go to Miss Cameron, our Learning Mentor and SEAL Leader in school for facilitating all this good work.

Class 1
Jessica Hawke for being very brave when she had an accident at home and had to go to hospital.  She didn’t complain once and still gave 100% as always.

Class 3
William Franklin for setting himself high expectations and for doing anything he can to reach his goal.
