If your child is in year six you should apply for a place at a secondary school. Applications are open between September and October each year. You need to apply for a place at a secondary school, even if it’s linked to your child’s current primary school, or your child's brother or sister is already at the school.
Closing date for Primary School - 15th January 2018

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.
Happy 2018 to everyone in our Padiham Green school family! I hope 2018 brings everything you are looking and hoping for so I wish everyone a very Happy New Year!
Health and Safety – Inconsiderate Parking. Another request for your attention please on behalf of all our children and our pram-pushing parents in particular: please park safely and sensibly without blocking pavements because this forces pedestrians onto the road. This is just another reminder that parking a couple of streets away will make the turning circle space a much safer space. If you are late, being a bit later will be better than causing an accident. Thanks.
Inventors’ Week What? First week back? After Christmas? Just like Art Week? Then you think well Art Week worked ….and so has Inventors’ Week. It has been amazing! From YR to Y6 everyone has done something amazing and everyone has been engaged in learning and we’ve had a really interesting week staring with a visit from an Engineer called Vicki! She was a great role model – especially for our girls! It’s actually been a great way to start our ‘learning year’ too! We’re developing quite a culture of this practice as part of our new curriculum. We’ve linked Inventors’ Week to Science and Technology and other areas of the curriculum too. We also started this week with another whole school educational visit to Manchester Museum of Science and Industry, which was a great success. If you haven’t been, think about planning a family day to visit. It’s free and there are so many things to see and do - it’s a great day out and your child could be the tour guide! We saw all sorts of interesting things and hopefully, our PG children have been inspired to learn more in school.
Before School Club Appeal for unwanted toy cars please with thanks from Mrs. Simpson.
This week... We’ve had Street Dance for Year R, 1 and 3; and our Sing Together Choir; we’ve also started Yoga too in YR and Y4 which has been brilliant. I joined in with YR at one point …and it’s hard! But great!
On behalf of Y6, I want to thank all our teachers for offering to lead extra teaching sessions to everyone in Y6 this year. Everyone has an extra teaching session either before or after school with one of us. It was actually one of our parents thanking us that spurred me to write this message of thanks. We have some amazing parents that appreciate us! Thanks!
A reminder to give next year’s Y6 parents lots of time and opportunity to send in little and regular amounts of money to pay for this wonderful team-building opportunity for our oldest learners in the all-important, final Y6.
And finally… I love this. We had a phone call from one of our parents who asked if she could bring her child into school after telling us he was poorly because actually, she didn’t think he was! He was trying to pull a fast one and mum sussed him out! Brilliant parenting!
