The appalling attack at the Manchester Arena last night is currently being treated as a suspected terrorist incident. All our thoughts are with the families and friends of those who have lost loved ones or been injured or traumatised.  The police, hospitals, Council and emergency services are doing all they can to support them. As a City we will remain strong and it is more important than ever that our communities continue to support each other.

Our school leadership team will continue to ensure the safety of our children and security of our school building, and we will remain vigilant at all times.

We appreciate these terrible events will be distressing for your children and the school community. We will remain open as usual and we appreciate your support in keeping the day as calm and normal as possible for the children. We have access to Educational Psychology Services should anybody require this.

There is an increased number of police, including armed patrols out in communities following yesterday’s incident. These are general patrols aimed at providing community reassurance and there is no need to be alarmed.

There is no intelligence relating to a threat to schools and GMP are not advising any schools to close.

As we receive further information from the City Council we will update parents/carers via our website and we will notify you by text message that there has been an update.

Thank you as always for your continued support.

Mrs Fox, Headteacher

Our school mission statement is ‘Working Together As One.’ We view education as a joint venture, involving everyone – children, parents, staff, Governors and the wider community. We hope that we will be able to depend on your co-operation and support in this partnership, hoping that together we can provide the best for every child.

In order to provide parents with information on pupil progress and development, we hold two parent consultation evenings throughout the year. We also hold an Open Evening, as an opportunity to showcase the children’s achievements. Each term, the children are set targets and these are shared with the children and parents to support us with the encouragement of completing homework. We also share with our parents and children what their achievements so far have been and give a grade for effort.  A written report is sent home towards the end of the year to summarise achievement in all areas of the curriculum. In the summer term, an Achievement Assembly is held and all parents are invited to celebrate the achievement and success of our children.

We hope that we have included as much information as possible in this section. If there is any more questions, please contact the school office on 0161 681 1385
