Who helps us with our learning?

Mrs McGowan & Mrs Nelson will be helping us with our learning in September.



Getting Ready for School

Children are interested in all sorts of things and enjoy learning and exploring and we can't wait to see where their interests take us. Starting school is a big moment for children and you as their parents or carers. We have put together some ideas for how you can help your child when they start school.


Here are some documents with important information for you:

New Intake


There are a range of on-line resources which parents can be signposted to, which can offer guidance on preparing children for school, as well as supporting effective home learning, particularly focusing on developing communication and language skills and school readiness.


Department for Education launches Hungry Little Minds campaign | LuCiD                     Resources for professionals and volunteers - BBC Tiny Happy People                        

Lancashire Adult Learning have free online sessions for parents to help support children when they start schoolReady Steady School, Fun with Phonics and Fun with Maths may be useful.


Labelling Children's Clothes

When they start school children can take a while to learn how to organise and identify their belongings.  Putting your child's name in everything will make this much easier. Our PTFA have been in contact with a company that provides name tags and our school will receive commission on sales.


Our school ID is 22718.  

If you are thinking or ordering name tags please consider using this company and help support our PTFA whilst ensuring your child's clothing does not get lost.
