10th September 2014 Mr Caunce

Dear Parents,

I am very pleased to welcome back all our pupils after a very long summer break.  It was lovely to see so many smiling faces on their first day back in school, the pupils seemed very happy to see their friends and new teachers.  I hope everyone is ready to work hard and put their best efforts into school life as…Together we will make a difference!


EarringsAll earrings MUST be removed by Monday 15th September.  Any pupil wearing earrings from this day will have to remove them in school.  Please note, if this is not possible, pupils will be sent home.

A reminder that nail varnish, transfers, designs/colour in hair are not permitted in school at any time.


On Monday 15th September you will have the opportunity to meet your child’s class teacher (Year 1 to 6 only) which will take place at 3:15 p.m.  If you have more than one child in school it would be advisable to see the eldest child’s class teacher first.  Please go directly to your child’s class where the teacher will be there to greet you.


The reading targets this year, based on 3 reads per week, have been set as follows:Owl

Autumn Term 2014 – 40 reads by 15th December 2014

Spring Term – 30 reads by 23rd March 2015

Summer Term – 33 reads by 13th July 2015

Thank you in anticipation of your continued support in helping your child to reach these challenging targets!



Just a reminder that the Lancashire County Council Library Service ‘Summer Reading Challenge’ ends on Friday 27th September.


Please can parents ensure that their child’s inhaler is in date and present in school.  Please see your child’s class teacher if you need to check your child’s inhaler.


UniformWe are unable to keep a ‘Lost Property’ box in school so please ensure that all items of your child’s uniform is clearly labelled, including footwear.  This will ensure that if any item is misplaced it can be returned to the correct owner.  Last year we were inundated with jumpers, cardigans, and coats etc. some of which were brand new!


Year 1 would really appreciate it if you could bring into school, by Wednesday 17th September, any ‘Police Station’ role play items.  Outfits are very welcome too.  Please take the items either to Year 1 or to the school office.  Thanks!


Please ensure that any money being sent into school, cash or cheque, is in an envelope clearly labelled with your child’s name and class.


We would like to offer your child the opportunity to enjoy one of the following hot dinners:

  • Pizza and Chips
  • Fish, Chips and Peas/Beans or
  • Jacket Potato with a choice of toppings including beans, cheese or tuna.

all accompanied by salad and bread.  There will be an assortment of desserts to follow.  The cost will be £13.80 until October Half Term.  If you would like your child to enjoy a Friday Favourite Hot Dinner then please complete the reply slip below and hand it to the school Wednesday 17th September.  Those children who already receive a hot dinner in school will automatically be included.


School ClubsAll clubs will start again during week commencing 15th September. Please keep an eye out for letters as they are sent out over the next few days.


The first PTFA meeting of this year will be held in school on Wednesday 17th September at 6.00 p.m. in the Staff Room.  The PTFA play a vital role in raising funds for the school and are integral to school life.  If you feel that you can contribute in any way then it would be great to see you at this meeting.
