Infant Trip to Lakeland Wildlife Oasis

Miss Race will be taking all the infants to Lakeland Wildlife Oasis on Monday 30th April.  We have hired a coach to transport them and have to pay £6 entrance per pupil, so are asking for a donation of £10 each towards the cost of this.  Please complete the slip at the end of the newsletter, giving permission for your child to go on this trip.  All children going on the trip will need to bring a packed lunch on the day. Detailed information sheets will be in the bag next week.


Royal Wedding Picnic

We are planning a picnic lunch to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.  The lunch will be on Thursday 17th May and all children are invited to take part.  An invitation is included in the Friday bag today for all children who don’t usually have lunch on a Thursday.

There will be no charge for infants joining in, but juniors will need to send in £2.20, please return the form in the bag on Monday to allow Cookie to plan.


NISCU Competition

Included in the Friday bag is a flyer inviting you to draw, paint or make something to show ‘What is the biggest thing you can give a friend?’ Don’t worry about the date on flyer, but all entries need to be in school first thing on Monday morning.

Outstanding Dinner Money and Residential Payments

Reminders about outstanding dinner money are included in some Friday bags, these can either be paid by logging onto the school money website or we are still happy to receive cheques made payable to Lancashire County Council.  Also included are any outstanding debts for the junior residential, these need paying by the end of April please, if this causes a problem do come and speak to us.


Drop off and pick up

Please could we ask parents to use the pub carpark and main school entrance both before and after school. There is limited space in the staff carpark and pupils should not be using this route into the playground, as cars are regularly coming and going.
