The consultation on our school becoming a church school runs until 11th November.  The Governing Body would very much appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to respond to the consultation to show the County Council that the community is aware of and actively involved in the next stage of securing our future.  Your support in this is very important as it determines if our school has a future.

Non-uniform day

There will be a non-uniform day on Friday 22nd November.  If pupils wish to wear their own clothes they need to bring £1 per pupil that will be used to buy items for the hamper in the Grand Christmas Raffle. This along with our ticket sales from the Christmas play are our main fundraiser events.  This year we need to raise money to replace our original iPads that are now beyond upgrade!!


Crisp packets

The eco committee are collecting crisp packets for Chester Zoo elephants. If you have any crisp packets please don’t throw them away in your home bin, please bring them to school.

There is a big white bag in the school hall and that is where you will put them if you bring them in. This is a very important way to help Chester Zoo’s elephants find a way to make them better from the illness they are getting.

We hope you understand.

Thank you.


Uniform Exchange

The eco committee would like to encourage uniforms to be re-used until they have had their full wear.  We currently have a variety of things so please come and have a look.  If you have any to donate please give to Mrs Howarth.


Names on uniform and PE kits PLEASE


School Dinners & dealing with debts

It is very important that you keep on top of any debts in school lunches.  We don’t like to see anyone build up large debts so the limit is 1 week’s worth - £11.25.  After this amount you will be asked to provide sandwiches from home until the debt is cleared and the next week’s dinners are paid for in advance.    It is a parent’s duty to arrange food for their children.
