Latest update Thursday 17.9.15

Dear Parent / Carer,

An update on plans for tomorrow and next week.

The air analysis tests carried out this week have unfortunately proved inconclusive. As we have stated previously, we are not prepared to risk the wellbeing of your children until we have an ‘all clear’ and, as a result, we have asked for a second, broader, set of tests. These will take place over Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week, with the new results due back by the end of the week. The plan is to seal the school over those days in a bid allow the atmosphere inside to settle. As usual, we will let you know the outcome as soon as we can.

Lowton CE High have very kindly allowed us to continue to use their facilities for the whole of next week. Just to reassure you, we will be at Lowton this coming Monday even though the site is also being used as an educational activities day for other primary schools.

We plan to restart P.E. lessons at Lowton on the usual days next week and it would assist us greatly if you could send your child with t-shirt, shorts and pumps / trainers on those P.E days.

We will also enter into negotiations with school meals providers tomorrow (Friday) to try to provide hot meals on site from Monday. In the meantime, please send your child with a packed lunch and drink (as well as their water bottle) for tomorrow.

Year Four swimming will go ahead tomorrow with the coach picking up and dropping off at Lowton CE High.

The coach bringing Year Six back from Low Bank Ground tomorrow will also drop off at Lowton CE High from approximately 3.30pm onwards.

We are hoping to have a Breakfast Club up and running at Lowton from Monday. Please watch the website for further details tomorrow.

From tomorrow morning we are also asking Reception, Years One and Two children to be dropped off and picked up at Lowton High’s Main Entrance (right outside B Block and opposite the car park roundabout). Everyone else please make your way up to the all weather pitches as this morning and we will collect your children there. If everyone could arrive for 8.50am tomorrow that would be great.

Unfortunately, next week’s music tuition, including brass lessons, will be cancelled.

Please keep an eye out tomorrow for news about the Autumn Fayre. Gilded Hollins will not be able to host the event, but an alternative venue may be available.

One final note to thank you all for your support and good humour today. It was good to see both you and your children.
