Letter to Parents of Year  R 1 and 6




Fun Run Challenge


Latest update 18th May 


Hi everyone, hope you are all safe and well. Just to let you know the next batch of food vouchers are available for collection on Friday 22nd between 11am and 2pm. 
In terms of re-opening no decisions have been made as yet, I will keep you updated on this when I am able to. Stay safe. Mrs Cole





Afternoon everyone hope you’re all well and staying safe.
The Edenred food vouchers have now arrived in school. These are for children in receipt of pupil premium and are therefore entitled to free school meals. (Families who collected food bags during the first two weeks).Vouchers must be collected from school by a parent of the child in receipt of the voucher. Vouchers will not be given to anyone other than the child’s parent. You cannot collect vouchers on behalf of another family. Vouchers can be collected from school between 11am and 2pm on either Tuesday 12th or Friday 15th May. Mrs Cole

Latest Update


Hope everyone is safe and well and coping with the current situation as best you can.
School will be opening on Monday, for Key Worker children only. If you are a key worker and require childcare please contact us via Facebook or my email - head@poolhouse.lancs.sch.uk with details of days and times you need. Please do not turn up at school with your child without prior arrangement as the school needs to be staffed adequately for pupil numbers.

To those of you who should and will be receiving food vouchers I can only apologise for the delay, there have been problems issuing these which is out of our hands. I have been informed that they are being re-issued. We will contact you as soon as they are available.
Take care everyone, looking forward to seeing you all, hopefully sooner rather than later! Mrs Cole





Dear Parents           


During what is an extremely difficult time for us all we are writing to give you as much information as we can about the current situation.


As you are aware the government have made the decision to close schools in an effort to manage the Coronavirus pandemic. The exception to this could be for children with an Educational Healthcare Plan and for children whose parents are ‘key workers’.


As a result of this school will be closing until further notice at 3.15pm tomorrow, Friday 20th March 2020.


I appreciate this may be a challenging time for you and unsettling for the children but we will do our best to support you throughout the time of closure. We will keep in contact with you as much as possible and when there is information to share with you, we will do so through the school Facebook page and also through the school website.


We will not be sending home curriculum work for the children to complete during their time at home but you will find attached a list of websites which the children can access to support their learning and also a list of ‘fun’ activities which will also support their learning.


If you anticipate any difficulties with childcare because you are a ‘keyworker’, please do not hesitate to contact us before we close tomorrow.


We wish you all the very best of health.


Kind regards


Rev H Bloomfield                                Julie Cole

Chair of Governing Body                   Headteacher
