Dear families,

This year we will have an end to our school year that will be different than normal. It may be different... but we will keep the theme of celebration alive throughout the school community. Thank you for your patience, support and understanding. 

More information is the events section of this email.

5 Ways to Reading

The focus this week is reading at home.

Reading can include comics, magazines, reading together with an adult, listening to an adult and many more enjoyable opportunities.
Next week our class bubbles will share a reading activity over Google Classroom with another year group.

Remember your Oxford Reading challenge. We already have some Infant children who have achieved their Gold Award.

Fantastic Ferns
Fantastic ferns, bio-diversity and developing an enthusiasm for plants.

The Year 4 children built a terrarium in a jar this week...

They were fantastic.

Red Squirrels

Year 3 had great fun learning about red squirrels with the Knowsley Safari expert this week. 

Well done everyone. 
5 Ways to Wellbeing



New learning can include hobbies, languages or learning from experiences.

How can you keep learning at home with your family? 

How about going on a "Home School Safari"?

Happy to Help

Special Needs Survey 
Knowsley Council are currently asking for the views of Parents and Children with Special Needs.

Do you have a child with special needs...? Share your thoughts on the council special needs service below.


School Events
Sports Day

Knowsley Council advice to schools is that any sports activities must not include spectators or families.

Sadly, parents will not be invited to Sports Day this year. Classes will have their own special event in their bubble.

Sadly, due to Covid-19 restrictions, things will have to be done differently this year.

Following the distribution of end of year reports any class teacher/parent or carer catch ups will be via telephone or Google Meet this year.


Year 6 end of year celebrations will be planned as in school events for the pupils.  We will be using the current in class bubbles, due to the restrictions of 30 people remaining until at least 19.07.2021 at the earliest.

Thank you for your patience.

Pope Francis Tweets
Pope Francis sends us inspiration via his tweets.

Our favourite one this week is....

  "Where there is no honour for the #eldery, there is no future for the young.

Remember to respect and care for our elderly. There is a lot that we can learn from them about resilience and strong spirit.

Well Done To Everyone ! 

Keep Up The Good Work!


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!
The best attenders this week are...
Class 10 - Miss Hester 99.7%

Class 8 - Mrs Ferguson 97.9%

All of these classes were above our school target of 97%

This is Brilliant - Keep Up The Good Work!

Come on every other class... let's get your class on the leader board by being above 97% next week!

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!
