This Half Termly Gospel Value is Forgiveness
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.
We had a great World Book Day at Padiham Green once again. Many thanks to everyone for getting characteristically stuck in and dressing up. We had a visit from our Chair of Governors too and even she dressed up! Brilliant! I carried a copy of a Harry Potter story around with me so we didn’t forget the purpose of the day …and I had such a bad hair day too! Mrs. Mellor played a blinder in the morning offering an illustrator’s masterclass for the whole school. Many thanks Mrs. Mellor – that was great! It was also funny watching you have serious conversations at Parents’ Evening with someone in a onesy, Little Red Riding Hood …and the Wolf!; Mrs. Fox, Willy Wonka, Gangsta Granny, Professor Trewlaney and a crayon! Brilliant! It was a great day but we hope the message that reading is REALLY IMPORTANT got through! Get reading everyone! Get into books! Reading for pleasure …is a pleasure!
Thanks to all the parents that joined us for Parents’ Evening. It’s great that you came along and made that important statement to your child that you are interested and engaged in your child’s learning at school. We really appreciate it.
Congratulations to Alivia Shearer, India Graham, Daisy Wilding, Tia Davies, Ian McLean and Chloe Moore for being the coolest spellers at Padiham Green. This is a brilliant accolade that we’re all really proud of. Mr. Tranmer awarded their ‘PG Spelling Star’ badges that sit alongside our golden / merit badges and official office badges on our ceremonial–Sunday-best uniforms! We also had the SWAT Cluster’s Spelling Bee Competition here yesterday!
If you have a message for teachers before school, you can give them directly to them because they are outside from 8.50am. Please don’t expect to be able to talk to them at 9am when they are getting ready to start lessons. Messages can also be passed on via the office. Thanks.
Paper Newsletters Just a reminder that you can request a paper copy of the newsletter that will be sent home with your child when you ask. Just let us know.
China Visit October 2018 Meeting - We are going to decide whether to offer this October 2018 adventure next week dependent upon appropriate numbers of interested parents. I will lead discussions with a PowerPoint presentation on Tuesday after school at 3.30pm. At the end of the meeting, I need a firm commitment from parents to say yay or nay! There is no pressure to make a yay decision but we do need to make a decision. If we get an appropriate number of interested parents for the places available, there will obviously be other meetings with more concrete details. The other school is oversubscribed with requests to go.
