Burnley Together – Christmas Gifts 

As a school we would like to say another massive thank you for the generosity you have shown. Last week we managed to collect well over 100 gifts, which have been collected by Burnley Together and will be given to children across Burnley this Christmas.


Burnley Together 

Mrs. Barnes, our pupil and family support worker, received contact from Burnley Together asking if we could help. As a school we were given two wheelie bins to fill with as much food, clothing and other essential items as possible. Our school community came together and we managed to fill two wheelie bins. Thank you to all those who donated – we appreciate it!


Video call with Anthony Higginbotham MP

We had a great experience of asking questions to our local MP, Anthony Higginbotham. Mr. Higginbotham spoke to the school for 45 minutes and each class were able to ask him questions. We would like to thank Anthony for his time and we really enjoyed the morning!


VE Day Celebrations 

In school our children had a fantastic day celebrating VE Day with staff. A big thank you to Kath and all the kitchen staff, going out of their way to get as many Union Jacks items as possible. Everybody in school really enjoyed the day!
