This Half Termly Gospel Value is Justice
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 and Safety – Crossing Patrol: Use it or lose it! Unfortunately, it is the perception of the local authority (as the organisation to provide it), that our Crossing Patrol is an underused service. When we have external people providing this service on a supply basis, due to the infrequent absence of our regular Crossing Patrol Officer, they report that it is under-used in comparison with other patrols. They report pedestrians are also observed to cross the road at different locations away from the patrol. I’m sure you will feel this service would be a great loss if it were taken away but it must be used to be seen as providing a service and, therefore, continue to be provided. This is a local authority service: it is not provided by us …so please encourage your children to use it.
Summer School - We are looking for expressions of interest in a Summer School for PG children in the first two weeks of the summer holidays (and possibly more). Key information includes: it will be run by Mr. Greenwood, our PG Sports Coach and other PG staff (all well-known and loved by our children); Monday to Thursday from 9am-3.15pm; for current Y1 to Y6; £12/day; places limited but will accommodate where possible. More details will follow but I’m sure it’ll be a great experience for participants with lots of fun and exciting activities planned. Please ask at the office for more details.
The Importance of Free School Meals Eligibility to School Funding - All schools are facing an uncertain financial future these days and we’re no different at Padiham Green. In a low birth rate year when more children leave than arrive, there is always a financial kick. That kick will hit us this year so we need to make sure that any family eligible for Free School Meals applies ….and we’ll help you and it’s easy. We know all infant children get free school meals anyway but if you are eligible, it really helps us (and you) if you apply. Mrs. Ashton will be contacting families just to check if you are eligible and she’ll help you sort it all out. Many thanks for your co-operation here.

School Disco Many thanks to everyone for supporting the brilliant school disco last night and especially to Mel, Rachael and Jackie for leading it. Most importantly, it was great fun and everyone had a great time but it also raised £334.76! Thanks! And it was a brilliant ‘Floss off’ too by the way!
Non-Uniform Street Party - Thanks to Jackie and her team for organising our Royal Wedding Street Party and very best PG wishes to Harry and Meghan: I think Harry is brilliant! Good luck to them!
School Uniform Please ensure all items of school uniform have children’s names in. As the weather is getting warmer children remove their sweatshirts and we have found a number of these un-named.
I want to pay tribute to our great Y6 class this week by saying thank you to them all! This week, they have been brilliant! Their behaviour and attitude during their SATs tests has been truly exemplary as they start to build their legacy for next year’s Y6. I’m delighted that this important tradition at Padiham Green continues from our 2017/2018 Y6.
