School is now closed for the half term break and reopens on Monday 2nd November.

Please continue to communicate via email over any concerns or positive results for coronavirus where appropriate.

We hope you all stay safe and well.

Bury council will provide food vouchers for almost 8,000 children over the half term holiday this week.

The £15 vouchers will be distributed from Monday 26 October, continuing previous half-term and holiday support. Two thousand vulnerable children will be contacted directly and those eligible for free school meals should call 0161 253 5858.

Councillor Tamoor Tariq, cabinet member for children, young people and skills, said: “We’ve all seen Marcus Rashford’s campaign and I and my colleagues are equally concerned about children going hungry in this borough.

“Whether at school or at home, they need a square meal and the voucher scheme will make sure that almost 8,000 children will get the food they need over the holiday.

“It’s an extension of the packed lunches we provided at the start of lockdown and the food parcels we’re providing now for those who are self-isolating and away from school.

“Times are tough for many right now and we hope that this will help keep our young people healthy and their parents and carers supported.”

School is fully open to all children using the staggered start times: see below.

If you have more than one child attending school, and they start at different times, you are welcome to drop all the children off at which ever time is the earliest according to the timetable.

To reduce the “crush,” only one parent should bring children each day; preferably walk or cycle to school if possible and no dogs should accompany you.

We will meet you at the school gates and staff will walk the children up to school.

We ask any parent coming onto the school premises to wear a face covering.

At home time Classes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 can be collected from designated areas on the playground whilst Classes 7, 8 and 9 will be walked through the car park to be collected at the car park gates. Arrival and exit times will be staggered as follows and we ask that you stick to them strictly from the very first day:

Arriving at 8.45 a.m. Class 8 and Class 6 at the car park gates and Class 1 at the footpath gates. These classes to be collected at 3.00 p.m.

Arriving at 9.00 a.m. Class 9 and Class 5 at the car park gates and Class 2 at the footpath gates. These classes to be collected at 3.15 p.m.

Arriving at 9.15 a.m. Class 7 and Class 4 at the car park gates and Class 3 at the footpath gates. These classes to be collected at 3.30 p.m.

Foundation Stage: To arrive via the footpath gate at 9.15 and be collected via the footpath gate (Bumblebees) and Car park gate (Honeybees) at 3.00 p.m.

There is no before or after school provision initially as we try to keep class bubbles separate and work the staggered start and finish times.

  You will also find advice on face coverings and transport on the parents page.
