Easter Club Launched - update
Please see details on the link in the picture for our activities.
Update: 22:08, 30/03/2021
All children who have a confirmed place for our holiday club have been contacted by our holiday club supervisor, Vicky Pountley today. If you did not receive a call today from Vicky to confirm a requested place you should assume that a place is not available for your child.
DO NOT ASSUME THAT IF YOU REQUESTED A PLACE YOUR CHILD CAN ATTEND - ONLY THOSE CONFRMED BY TELEPHONE CALL WITH VICKY POUNTLEY WILL BE ACCEPTED ON THE DAYS BOOKED IN.
With around 100 children eligible for income-related free school meals that attend our school we cannot meet all the requests for HAF funded places. We have provided the number that maintains an effective club for all children.
If you have booked a paid place and you have been allocated a HAF funded place (limited number of spaces) you will receive a refund. If you booked a paid place and you have not been given a HAF funded place then we will charge for this place as prevuously expected before HAF availability.
Lunch arrangements: If your child is attending for a paid place you should provide a packed lunch for your child as previous holiday clubs. If your child is attending for a confirmed HAF funded place your child's lunch will be provided. If your child has any allergies please let the club assistants know on arrival.
Timings: HAF funded places are now only from 10 - 2pm on the days we have confirmed. Paid places are as per your booking.
Activities: Due to the increase in the number of staff members involved including from Warrington Youth Club we have been able to offer an enhanced programme. This includes some requirements for the HAF funding such as health eating, mental health, bushcraft activities and sports. All children will access all enhanced activities regardless whether it is a paid place or a HAF funded place,
We are so looking forward to having all our pupils back on Monday. Please note the newsletter issued earlier this week: NEWSLETTER NO 17

World Book Day 2021 - making it great wherever you are...
The Masked Reader Competition and more for World Book Day
Below are some great activities to get you 'bookish'. In case you are wondering - no costumes this year (phew!)
Tomorrow we will be joining in with the celebrations for World Book Day - a day for sharing our love of books and the extraordinary adventures that stories can take us on. Across our whole school, we will be sharing a fantastic book called 'Perfectly Norman', which encourages everyone to celebrate and love their uniqueness, rather than trying to hide it away. A range of fun activities that are linked to the story have been planned, as well as the keenly awaited 'Masked Readers' quiz! Will you guess who's behind the mask?
Teachers will be sharing Perfectly Norman and the Masked Reader quiz with their class during live lessons, but to make sure parents can enjoy sharing the fun with their children, we have put links to the story, the Masked Reader quiz and the Pick 'n' Mix afternoon activities below. You will also find a link to the World Book Day £1 Book Token which can be printed off at home (paper copies will be sent out when all children return to school on Monday). These can be exchanged in participating books shops for one of the World Book Day books.
Please make sure you share any photos that you take during the day, either using your child's Google Class stream or on Tapestry or you can Tweet them on parents’ Twitter Accounts with the hashtag #smcepslovereading

INSET Day Change in 2022 & Exciting Training
On 4 January 2022 we are delighted to be hosting Andy Wolfe, the national Deputy Chief Education Officer for the Church of England to inspire our teaching team. We are running the event for five other Church of England primary schools in Warrington in the 'Grace Hub'. As a result we are swapping the INSET Day from 1 July to this date. He have avoided changing the other holiday dates.
Our revised Term dates for 2021-2022 are published here:
