Robins Children – Important Safeguarding Message


A reminder to parents and carers of children in the Robins class that children must be handed over to a member of staff every morning. We have noticed that some parents are dropping their children at the top of the path and letting them walk down by themselves. Please ensure you walk your child all the way down the path and hand them over to a member of staff. We do not want any child to go missing.

Blackburn Foodbank


We recently received this lovely message from Blackburn Foodbank:

I wanted to take a moment to personally thank you for your incredibly generous donation of 303.70KG food/goods to Blackburn Foodbank in the month of October. Your support is making a profound impact on our mission to alleviate hunger and food insecurity in our community.

Your kindness and compassion are truly inspiring. Due to your donation, we are able to provide essential food supplies to individuals and families who are facing challenging circumstances. Your contribution brings hope and comfort to those in need. We are incredibly thankful.

It is through the kindness and generosity of individuals like you that we are able to continue our work and bring about meaningful change. Your belief in our cause and your commitment to making a difference is ultimately inspirational.

Falcons’ Class Assembly

A reminder that the children in the Falcons’ class will be leading our assembly next Wednesday, 29th November at 8.45am.  Parents and carers of children in the Falcons’ class are very welcome to come along and join us.
