Message from the School

Lighting the way….

Welcome to Horwich Parish CE Primary School. We hope you will join us in celebrating our achievements and enjoy reading about the variety of learning experiences within our school community.

Whether you are one of our pupils, a parent or perhaps a future parent of a child in school, we know you will find lots of examples of our children’s exciting and interesting learning in this blogsite. Many of our children use this site to write, or to showcase their work in video or sound, showing a wide range of topics and subjects. Each time you visit our site, you are adding to the visitor count, and we warmly welcome comments on the children’s work. The children love to know they are producing work for an engaging audience.

On this site you can also find links to many of our school policies and documents, including our school brochure; and to particular groups and activities. All the information which the Department for Education require us to supply are also easily found from the home page.

As a Church of England school with a wide ranging curriculum, we hope that this site reflects our Christian character built on key values such as Perseverance, Hope, Friendship, Creativity and Service. We also aim to reflect the exciting activities including computing and outdoor learning which are a special feature of our school. We have our own allotment and chickens! We have three elected pupil councils: the School Council, Eco-Council and Safety Council, and some of their work is reflected here and in our activities in school.

If you would like to know more about our school, or to suggest improvements to our website, please contact us at businessmanager@horwichparish.net or by telephone on 01204 333147

 We look forward to seeing your comments on our website and hope you enjoy learning more about Horwich Parish CE Primary School.

Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back to school. We hope you had a lovely summer break and are looking forward to the oncoming year with children, parents and staff working together to help our children achieve their potential.
We wish to welcome Miss Mitchell to our school as the executive headteacher. It has been a super week for Miss Mitchell meeting our children and staff. I am sure it will be a really productive term as we continue to develop and grow our school.

Communication
This year we hope to build on parent feedback in questionnaires and to governors. Please find attached an outline of key dates from the year so you can plan ahead and be prepared for oncoming events. Staff are available at each entrance each morning to pass on messages. We continue to send a weekly newsletter and use face book, our school blog (horwichparish.net) and texting to share the life of Horwich Parish CE Primary School.

Growth mindset
I hope your children have been talking about ‘Growth mindset’. Don’t worry; the children will be learning lots more about it to help improve learner behaviours and support children so they can achieve their true potential. We will be putting information on the blog and providing a workshop in school as it would be super if you could embark on this journey with us. This week we have been learning about how the brain can grow and develop.

Starting the day
Please remember that the school doors open at 8:40 am. Children must be supervised at all times before the doors open. The doors close at 8:50 and the register is taken straight away and is closed at 9am. We start our lessons at 9am and we know every minute counts to help your child, so please make sure your child is in school on time. The school gates are closed at 9am so we can all start the school day.

Sport
After school clubs
We will be sending out letters for after school clubs next week. You will be able to register and sign up for the clubs by using Parentpay. We will be offering clubs to KS1 and KS2.
Lunchtime clubs:
-Cross country club every Monday lunchtime for Year 4-6 children. We will also be choosing our school team this Monday due to cross country events taking place very soon. Anyone can come along though. You may just want to just enjoy a jog. Please bring additional clothing on this day: trainers, socks, tracksuit bottoms and top – not school PE kit -Y5/6 football trials on Wednesday 13th and 20th September at dinner time. Children will need to bring a kit, boots and shin pads in order to take part. -Girls football sessions will begin Thursday 14th September, all girls in Y5/6 are welcome to join.

Para Olympic fencer coming to our school We’re very excited to be welcoming GB Paralympic Fencer Craig McCann to the school on Monday, 25 September. Craig was spotted by the British disabled Fencing Association in 2010, after being diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2004 leaving Craig permanently disabled. Craig has some great achievements including reaching the quarter finals at the 2012 Olympics in London. Craig is now training in the disciplines of Paracycling and Paratriathlon for the Rio Paralympics in 2016. Craig will be leading a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and will follow-up with a talk and question and answer session. The aim of the event is to inspire the pupils to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life. The children will be provided with a sponsorship form for your child to use in order to help raise money for the event. You can also sponsor your child by following the below link: www.sportsforschools.org/event/BL700 As the sponsorship form and online sponsorship page explain, much of the money that is raised will be used to buy sports equipment for the school, while also supporting GB athletes (including Paralympic athletes). Please ensure that sponsorship forms and moneys are returned to the class teacher on or before Monday, 02 October at the latest. Please also make sure that your child/children come to school on the event day with their PE Kits! Thank you in anticipation of creating a terrific and memorable event

Dinner Money School dinners for this term are £47.60 payable in advance via ParentPay. Please remember that this is payable in advance, and also that 3 weeks notice is required if you wish to transfer to packed lunches or vice versa as per the school policy.
