We have had a number of reports that there could potentially be some snowy weather next week.
In the event of disruption caused by heavy snow the prime concern of the school must always be the safety of the pupils and staff. We will always endeavour to open the school in the event of bad weather, as long as it is safe to do so.
If we do have to make the decision to close school at any point, please be assured that we will inform Parents/Carers as soon as possible. Any information about school closures will be shared via our school website, on BBC Radio Lancashire and via and text message.
In order to ensure you do not miss any information, please ensure that we have your up to date contact numbers.
Our vision is to foster a love of lifelong learning and give every child the opportunity to develop socially, academically, creatively, spiritually and emotionally. We will provide a broad, balanced and rich curriculum which will challenge children’s thinking, encourage them to care for others and inspire them to fulfil their individual potential in order to achieve success.

Since returning to school in September, we have had a lot of problems with cars parked on the Zig-Zags on both Pilmuir Road and Crosby Road.
If you are a Parent please can you ensure that you are not parked dangerously and not on the Zig-Zags. Please park in a safe place, and walk a short distance to school if necessary.
If you travel to school using a taxi, please ensure your driver does not drop you off on the Zig-Zags.
If any Parents/Carers witness taxis parked on the Zig-Zags please take a picture of their driver number and registration plate and report them using the following number - 01254 585585.
Enforcement Officers have been visiting school and will continue to do so at various points throughout the year. They have been issuing drivers with fines and will continue to do so.
Please help us to keep your children safe
