Dear Parents and Carers,

Today we have held our picnic as part of the nationwide event “The Great Get Together.” We continue to promote integration and positive relationships at all levels in our school.

lass arrangements for next year

We have agreed a plan for the new school year, so that you can help prepare your child for their new class. We are also holding a “moving up day” on 7th July so the children can begin to get to know the staff in their new year group.  Please contact Mr Beedie or Mrs Washington if you have any questions.

 Operation Orphan – Keep a Child Warm Project

On Thursday 22nd June Operation Orphan will be calling into school to collect any coats which you no longer require which could be donated to them.  Please do not bring in any coats prior to this date as we do not have the storage space in the office. Many thanks.

 Cycling – Horwich festival of racing

Thank you to all the children who responded to my recent email. We are delighted to have 6 teams. Please can the children meet Mrs Washington at the town hall at 11:15 as the race starts at 11:30am. The children will wear t-shirts so they know which team they are in. It would be great if a parent could be allocated to support each team as it can get a little hectic!
