A welcome page for prospective parents is now at the top of the Class News section!

School is open but only to children of critical workers and vulnerable children where there is no alternative childcare.

In order to minimise numbers in school, stick to the lockdown and beat this virus, your children should be cared for at home and work remotely wherever possible.

Please stay safe and well and do your best to stick to the new Level 5 lockdown rules! 


Details of our risk assessment and remote learning policy can be found by following links on the parents page.

The latest news from around Bury can be found by clicking on this link.


Our new Head Boy and Head Girl appointments for the academic year 2020-2021 have now been made:

Maisie Fu will be our head girl with Lia Rogers as her deputy.

Zak Hashmi will be our head boy with Jake Sommers as his deputy.

Well done to all of them and well done to everyone who applied. All of your letters were amazing and it was the most difficult task for staff to judge (anonymously I must add!)


Copies of all letters sent home can be found under the parents page of the website by clicking the "letters" tab. 


Coronavirus - symptoms in children

Research from the COVID Study App shows that over half of children who test positive for coronavirus do not present with the "typical" 3 symptoms of a persistent cough, temperature or loss of taste/smell.

The top five symptoms of coronavirus in children are:

  1. Fatigue
  2. Headache
  3. Fever
  4. Sore throat
  5. Loss of appetite

One in six children have also displayed a skin rash.

Finally, a reminder that your child should not attend school if they have been in close contact with anyone who has symptoms, is awaiting a test result or tests positive, for 10 days from the last point of contact, or until a negative test result is returned.


Please use the following sites for remote learning:

Foundation Stage: Please use Tapestry and Phonics Play

Key Stage 1: Please use Tapestry, Purple Mash, Numbots and Phonics Play.

Key Stage 2: Please use See Saw, TT Rockstars, Epic and Purple Mash

 Your child already has a login for Purple Mash which has a wealth of activities across the curriculum and a log in for TT Rockstars.


 If you and your child are finding the current situation challenging  then please check the SEN section for further advice.
