Flourishing Children, Flourishing Schools Conference
We are delighted to host for the schools in the Grace Hub and other local schools in the diocese, our first conference to further develop Christian education in our Warrington Church of England Schools.
Key note speaker, Andy Wolfe, will be leading sessions in the morning and afternoon, as well as contributions from Lou Morley (Diocesan RE Consultant) and Lesley Dennison (Diocesan Collective Worship Consultant).
The day will unpack three of five key themes in Andy's latest book; purpose, teaching and wellbeing in a flourishing school system. Lou Morley's session will take us through the developments of the new Diocesan RE Syllabus recently launched by Blackburn Diocese, and Lesley will get us to think more deeply about the place of class-based collective worship and spiritual renewal through this.
Scarlet Fever & iGAS
Please find below information regarding the above conditions.
Signs and symptoms of scarlet fever: Scarlet fever is a common childhood infection caused by Streptococcus pyogenes, or group A streptococcus (GAS). The early symptoms of scarlet fever include sore throat, headache, fever, nausea and vomiting. After 12 to 48 hours the characteristic red, pinhead rash develops, typically first appearing on the chest and stomach, then rapidly spreading to other parts of the body, and giving the skin a sandpaper-like texture. The scarlet rash may be harder to spot on darker skin, although the 'sandpaper' feel should be present. Patients typically have flushed cheeks and pallor around the mouth. This may be accompanied by a ‘strawberry tongue’. As the child improves peeling of the skin can occur.

Gold Award - Yes we did it!
As a school we earned the Gold School Games Award. Huge thank you to all the staff and pupils, but particularly Miss McGivern our PE lead and Miss Leigh our resident sports coach, who have encouraged us towards achieving the stringent criteria. Our children continue to be a credit to our school and it is always a joy to celebrate such broad talent in many areas. We participated in many inter school and intra-school activities. The football matches (both girls and boys), netball fixtures and practices are due to the great efforts of our parental support. Thank you Team St Margaret's.
