What a great first week!

It’s been a fabulous first week at Manchester Road, the children have returned to school ready to learn and get motoring in their new classes, and we are so proud of their positive attitudes and enthusiasm for being back.

The letters for different clubs have been given out today, and we know lots of children will be interested in joining our sport and extra – curricular activities. If any children don’t get their first choice, there’s no need to worry… They will be on the register for term 2.

A huge welcome to children who are new to our school… We have welcomed 12 new children into KS1 and KS2, and the school is very nearly full! The Early years department has welcomed the reception children to Rabbits and Hedgehogs, and I’m amazed at how quickly they are settling into our school routines. Well done everyone 🙂

We have also welcomed 3 new members of staff to the team – Miss Arrowsmith, Miss Manfreidy and Mrs Brennan have had a great start and are amazed at just how polite, caring and enthusiastic our children are… Comments like that always make us proud.

We have some very early trips and visits this year – Year 2 are off to Jodral Bank (volunteers needed please), and the Year 6 have their residential on the 16th – 18th September.

During the INSET day on the 1st we launched the BLP project with the staff. This is an exciting way of developing children’s learning and thinking skills, and a proven way in which to increase attainment and achievement. We will be holding parents information evenings through the year to give everyone an idea of what this is about, so please look out in the twitter and facebook feeds to ensure you don’t miss out. If you would like some more information at home, please follow the link below to open up a world of learning…


A diary sheet will be sent out next week with up – coming event leading right up to Christmas, so please look out for these in your child’s bag… or pocket!!!

Welcome back Everyone, it really is great to see you all!
