Homework is set weekly via the EDshed platform. All children are provided with logins. 

PE Days

PE Equipment

Games – shorts and jumper/sweater, t-shirt and trainer (jogging pants can be worn in very cold weather). Dance/Gym – close fitting shorts (above the knee) and t-shirts. Please ensure that your child’s name is on each item and they wear their PE clothes in to school that day.


Please make sure your child’s name is on their lunchbox. All lunch boxes are kept on a trolley for the children to collect.

Home Time

Following October Half Term, parents will enter school through the Oswald Road gate and follow the blue running track past the Willow Garden and on to the black pitch. Teachers will bring the children to their allocated space on the astroturf area and line them up. At 3.10pm children will be sent home in order of their line. 


Coats should be put on pegs outside the classroom. Please name your child’s coat.


Please don’t allow your child to bring toys into school.

Contacting a Teacher

Please make an appointment via the school office by emailing, to arrange a mutually convenient time. If your child is going to be absent from school please ring the office on 0161 881 4266 and leave a message on the answer phone before 9.30 am. If you are collecting children for an appointment please remember to sign your child out at the school reception.


Our PPA (Planning, Preparation and Assessment) time will be on Wednesday morning and covered by Midge Murray, Kieran Bentley and Nicky Appleby.
