Yes, your child can cycle to and from school if they are accompanied by an adult or if you give them permission to cycle alone or with friends. We have a bike rack available. All bicycles are left at own risk and we recommend using a bike lock. We are unable to provide bike locks.
All children in KS1 must be accompanied by an adult.
However, if you wish for an older child to walk to school alone we do need a permission letter from somebody with parental responsibility. The information will be held on their data collection sheet for reference.
We always promote healthy eating and encourage our parents to make healthy choices when putting together a packed lunch for their child.
Please be aware that we are a NUT FREE school. We have children at school who have severe nut allergies and would require medical assistance if they came into contact with any nuts. Therefore, please ensure your child's snack/packed lunch do not contain any nuts.
We ask that parents should label all clothing that comes into school. If an item goes missing, your child must inform their class teacher and teaching assistant and also look in the lost property box. Each Friday after school, we will have a lost property table outside the school office for parents to check for items.
We offer support in the transition from primary to secondary school. This process includes parents' meetings, workshops and transition booklets.
Due to our geographical location, our Year 6 pupils will move to various secondary schools across Warrington including Penketh High School, Great Sankey High School and St Gregory's High School.
Usually children join Reception class in the September before their 5th birthday. Please read our Admissions section here, or for further advice speak to our school office staff.
