Lots more fun this week in Forest School. Year 4 were very excited trying to put up their shelters in the wind!

There were some super clay models too.

Well Done To Everyone ! 

Keep Up The Good Work!


Well done to the 76 Children who have been in school every day we have been open this year. Certificates will be sent home next week.


If your child needs to be off school for reasons other than illness you must make a request using the following form. School will decide if the request will be authorised and send you a letter.
Any pupil having an absence without making a request will be classed as unauthorised – so it’s really important that you inform us!
Attendance - Reporting Absences
Reporting ALL absences is even more important at the moment. This helps us to keep the building Covid-19 secure.

Parents please make sure you follow our procedures, so we don't have to isolate any bubbles.  

Please telephone school on 0151 477 8400  on the first day of absence. You can also send an email to

Tell our admin staff the reason for the absence, and when you expect your child to return to school.

All unexplained absences will be looked at by our Attendance Lead, & possibly the School Attendance Service, so it's really important that you report all absences by 10am on the first day of absence!

Remember if your child is off school due to illness,  hospital  or dental appointments,  you must  also send an email with a copy of the medical letter / proof to  

We cannot authorise any absence without proof!

Covid-19 Information

Covid-19  Vaccines can now be booked for any one aged 18 or over.


Face Masks Must Be Worn At ALL Times -

As You Approach School
& Within The School Grounds! 


Staff must not be approached at the classroom door / outside - Please Telephone!


Please treat school staff with respect – they are implementing the school risk assessments.  

If anyone in a household is sick or showing signs of illness;
nobody from the household should come near school.

If someone is waiting for a Covid-19 test result
the whole household should not come near school!

If anyone in household has a cough, temperature, or loss of smell,
then a PCR test is needed, at a test centre, lateral flow tests cannot be used!

We do not want anyone put at risk!

Please note that the situation around Corona virus is rapidly changing and the information is correct at the time of sending this communication.
