School is currently closed for the Summer Holidays. We reopen for the start of the 2021 Autumn Term on Monday 6th September.


Some summer activities to engage your children!

Summer Reading ChallengeBury libraries are teaming up with the World Wildlife Fund for a very special nature-themed challenge to inspire you to stand up for the planet! Children can join at Ramsbottom Library, Radcliffe Library, Bury Library and Prestwich Library.

The challenge runs from Saturday 17 July to Tuesday 31 August.

Children are asked to read 6 books to help the Wilderville children make a difference to the environment. As they read, they collect stickers for their folder. After reading 6 books they earn their certificate and medal. Children can read any library book of their choice. 

It is open to all children, free of charge. Children can take part in the online Summer Reading Challenge on the Wild World Heroes website to earn digital rewards.

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.


At this difficult time, it is essential that we all act to protect our mental health as well as our physical health. To support the mental health and well-being of children and families across our communities, Team Mental Health and EdStart Sports Coaching have partnered to design and develop a range of fun 'Wellbeing Through Sport' activities to do at home.
