Padiham Green C of E Primary School

Mrs. Edwards has been offered an opportunity to teach in her children’s school closer to home. She always said this would be the only move she’d make away from Padiham Green and she says she does so with a heavy heart, so it is with great sadness that we will say farewell to Mrs. Edwards after Christmas. Claire (because that’s her real name) has made a most significant contribution to our Padiham Green development story for the last ten years and she goes with all our love, thanks and best wishes. She was here when behaviour for learning wasn’t outstanding but she’s helped us get there so many thanks for all your Padiham Green service Claire and good luck from us all going forward!

I’m also pleased to announce the Governors have permanently appointed Mrs. Perkins to take our Y2 class full time (apart from Fridays when she will continue with our exciting Forest Schools work across the school). I’m equally delighted to announce that it will be Mrs. Atkinson teaching in Y2 on Fridays. Mrs. Edwards and Mrs. Perkins told the Y2 children and parents this week.

Fair Many thanks to Miss Gartside, Mrs. Gardiner and Mr. Wright for going along to support our AMAZING choir on Saturday – they were excellent! I was so proud of the quality of their singing! It was the best performance I’ve heard! Well done to everyone but a big thank you for all the parental support to physically get them there! You play a great part in that success and we really appreciate it! We can’t do it without you!

Athletics tournament and we were the best runners up so we’re in the final – well done to all; Manchester Museum for Y1 and Y2 – excellent behaviour and attitude to learning – well done again; YR went to the Post Office and had a very successful experience; and our piano was tuned!

We are very proactive with ordering lunches for visit days and Jackie our cook is so accommodating with us but she can’t perform miracles (…which is a bit disappointing tbh!). We had eight children who hadn’t told us they needed a lunch for the Manchester Museum day until the day itself which means parents didn’t respond to our requests in the letters we send for lunch details. If this happens again, we will just provide a simple packed lunch but there will be no choice.

The Book Fair is coming next week from Tuesday to Thursday; PG Christmas Fair is on Wednesday 7th December 2017 from 3.30pm; our choir is singing at Padiham TESCOs on Tuesday from 11.45-12.30pm and at Woodside; Dick Whittington Panto is on Thursday; and Class R’s Stay and Play is on Friday.

Purple Mash is our fun online learning area.

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.
