Welcome back to a new year! We hope that you had a happy Christmas and holiday period. Thank you for all the gifts sent in to staff. They were much appreciated.

A slightly shorter newsletter this week with some dates for your diaries for this Spring term.

This week, we have welcomed our new Headteacher Mrs Nicole Davison, Nicole has joined us on secondment from Lancaster Christ Church and will be with us until the end of the Summer term.

We have also welcomed our new SENCO Erin Jones, Erin will be working at Hornby on a Monday.


Infants – next week

Please could all children in the Infants bring in a photograph of their house or email to angelafarrington@hornby.lancs.sch.uk as we are going to be using them as a starting point for Art and materials in Science.


Also, if anyone has some spare time and would like be a reading helper, we are looking for volunteers in an afternoon for Infants (any day)



All the children should be accessing TTRockstars, reading and practising spellings each week, in addition to this Mrs Cottam’s Maths and English groups will be bringing homework home every Friday to be completed and returned the following Tuesday. Thank you for your support with this.

The PTA would like to invite all children to a disco in school on Thursday 11th Jan 5.00 – 6.30pm.

Tickets will cost £2.50 per child which includes a ¼ pizza and unlimited squash. There will also be a tuck shop if children would like to buy some extra treats.

If your child would like to attend, please send £2.50 cash in a named envelope to Hannah in the School office with details of any dietary requirements we should be aware of. Thankyou!
