Uniform Orders

We are collecting any books, belonging to school, before the summer break. This allows us to audit what books we have. Many books are lost or damaged each year which is a great cost to school. Please check your cupboards and return any books before the end of term. Thank you!

Please order and pay for them by 18th July for collection on Monday 3rd September. Free school meal applications: Please bring completed forms to school by Wednesday 18th July.

94.4% for whole school attendance The minimum acceptable attendance is 96%. If a child misses 8 days or more a year they will not achieve 96% this is reportable to Lancashire County Council and may result in a Penalty Notice being issued. Please ensure your children are in school every day and on time. School starts at 8.55am. LUNCH OPTIONS FOR LATE ARRIVALS The dinner register closes at 9.25 in order that the kitchen staff can provide the hot dinners chosen by pupils. Any pupil arriving after 9.25am will only be able to order either a jacket potato or a sandwich.

Summer Weather As the weather is very warm, please remember to provide a hat for your child to wear at playtimes and put sunscreen on before they come to school.

Uniform Fittings We have now finished all the designated times for uniform fittings. If you have still not had your child fitted for the new school uniform please contact the office.
