Joe Wicks inspires our school – 05/10/2021

It was fantastic to welcome Joe Wicks to our school on Tuesday. He did a workout, signed his new book ‘The Burpee Bears’, donated a copy to every class, read his book to us and met every class.  A big thank you to Mr Ford for entering the competition and organising the event. 

His promotion of reading and physical welfare is inspiring and he is a great role model for all of our pupils.

Parent Maths and English drop in sessions

Dear parents and carers,

We would like to invite you to some Maths and English drop in sessions so that you can experience how your child learns during these core subject lessons and hopefully get some ideas for how to help your child learn at home. You will be able to sit with your child as they participate in activities in class, and join in with them.

The sessions are as follows:


Snowdrop, Bluebell and Buttercup class Autumn activity session- Please see individual class letters.

KS1 classes

Tuesday 19th October 9:10-9:40 Phonics and Reading drop in session

Wednesday 20th October 9:10-9:40 – Maths drop in session

KS2 classes

Tuesday 19th October 9:10-9:40 – Reading drop in session

Wednesday 20th October 9:10-9:40 – Maths (times tables) drop in session – KS2 classes

If you have children in more than one class, you are welcome to drop in to their different classrooms for a few minutes each!

Due to space in the classrooms, please could we ask that only one parent/carer per child attends – thank you for your understanding.

We look forward to seeing you at the drop in sessions and thank you for your support.

Kind regards,


Miss Warburton and Mrs Cox (KS2 and KS1 leaders)

Piano going to a good home

Good afternoon, 

A member of the public has a piano that is free to a good home and will be delivered free in Glossop. We already have a piano in school and it would be shame if nobody can make good use of it. 

If you are interested, please contact our office and we will put you in contact with the person. This will be on a first come, first serve basis.
