At Padiham Green we are currently thinking about how to keep our children safe when they use the internet. For parents and students who would like more information about this topic can follow this link.|
Please have a read of our RE Inspection report. We are really proud of it and I hope you are too with the recognition that the people who work here really do love and care for the children of PG.
Health, Safety and Security - Parents’ Art Gallery Thank you so much for complying with ALL our requests and arrangements last Friday. I’m not surprised because you clearly understand we are looking after your children as well as we can. Thank you! However, if there are ways you think we could improve, then please don’t hesitate to talk to us.
Many thanks to our Governors for their significant efforts in recruiting our new Deputy Headteacher for January 2019. The process continues to go forward and I’ll keep you as posted as I can.
Back to School Sunday Our Padiham Green and St. Leonard’s school families were warmly welcomed at St. Leonard’s Church last Sunday. Many thanks to all the PG children for wearing their PG colours too! It was great to see you there and thanks for that brilliant support from our staff and their families too!
Padiham Greenway Meadow Festival Saturday 15-09-18 (Tomorrow!) from 12-4pm at the Lightning Sculpture in Memorial Park. There will be lots going on and it’ll be a fun AND educational experience too. I’m interested in the Bee Trail! I love bees!

New annual donation for morning toast Having an energy boost with toast at morning playtime is brilliant for supporting our children’s learning in our second morning lesson so we want to continue to provide it. However, instead of the weekly £1 donations, we’re going to ask for an annual, one-off £5 payment. Yes that’s all! So if you want your child to have this valuable snack every day, please let us know by sending £5 to school asap and we’ll sort that out. We can see the benefit in lessons so we think it’s important and we hope you do too.
Year 4’s Roman Soldier Visit Brilliant day for Year 4 as Roman Centurion, Giius (Gary!) visited with loads of resources, weapons, battle tactics and stories to start this project. Great work!
Y2 Cross Country! Well done to all our Y2 runners this week – particularly those with Girl Power! Amazing results for our girls (Jaycee came 10th and Georgia came 18th!) and funny responses from our lads …who set off at a sprint! They said they were k…really tired! Huge thanks to Miss B and Miss T for taking them too – it is much appreciated!
Forest Schools Mrs. Mills and Year 3 were the first group to use our new Forest Schools Classroom today …and it’s been chucking down! But they weren’t bothered as they were under cover both inside and outside ...as well as getting wet and working with the elements. Brilliant to see such excited, smiling faces in the rain! Well done Year 3!
We will be arranging attendance awards for all children again this year that meet the required criteria in attendance and punctuality. We’re setting high standards for everyone. Every day, every lesson counts!

Health and Safety: Earrings + PE Please take them out on PE days or send plasters to cover them if still healing.
Family Contact/Data Sheets The new data collection sheets are out so please return them asap.
