       In light of the tragic events that happened at the Manchester Arena, please see below for update from Salford Council's Children’s Services Team

      24/5/17

    "We understand that parents are worried following the tragic events in Manchester. We are in    unsettling but fast changing times.  

 We have also seen false rumours that all Salford schools have been closed on police advice. This is absolutely untrue – please see GMP website to get the latest, accurate information http://www.gmp.police.uk/

 It’s crucial that we all try and remain calm, reassure our children and only seek or repeat information from official sources. Salford schools are open and ready to support children emotionally through chances to talk, the safety of predictable routines and spend time with their friends and teachers enjoying ordinary everyday activities.

 Salford City Council works very closely with Greater Manchester Police, particularly at times like this to share any relevant safety information for the public.

 GMP have stepped up patrols in our communities to provide reassurance.

 Our schools have their normal security and safeguarding plans and procedures.

 If anything changes the police will advise the public directly – and Salford City Council will share that information with schools and parents or carers.

 Please be vigilant but our strength lies in returning to business as normal as soon as possible."

More good news!

The school recently came first in the  Salford heat of the national TESCO Bags For Help competition and our prize of £12,000  is to be spent on upgrading our play facilities in the Key Stage 1 outdoor area. We have also received £3,000 from the Awards For All Big Lottery Fund which will be used in the same way. This will lead to a big improvement in our outdoor recreational facilities and will complement the new Tree Trail on the school field. Our heartfelt thanks go out to all parents, carers, guardians, friends and families who took the time and trouble to visit TESCO stores to vote in this competition.

Ofsted: Pupils are provided with rich, stimulating and creative opportunities to learn.

Ofsted: The proportion of pupils exceeding the progress expected of them has increased...many pupils made good and sometimes outstanding progress last year from their starting points.

Pupils are polite, welcoming and respectful to visitors. Pupils' highly positive and trusting relationships with staff help to boost their confidence in learning and self esteem. Ofsted 2015

Ofsted: A typical parent comment was, 'I can't praise the school enough'.
