Parental Request Regarding Parking Following recent features on our newsletters regarding parking outside school, a parent has requested that I make a polite request to all car drivers. If you are waiting outside school to collect your child, could you please turn off your car engine. Parents with toddlers or pushchairs are having to walk past a long line of parked vehicles with their engines still running. Exhausts are just at a toddler or baby height and fumes are going into their faces. Whilst we cannot enforce this, we are asking for your support with this to help make drop off and pick up better and safer for everyone. Thank you.

The Hive A new mental health and wellbeing service is now open for children aged 8-18 years in Glossop. The service provides a safe and confidential space for children to talk. One-to-one appointments are available as well as group sessions. The Hive is open on Mondays 4pm-8pm and is based at the Bureau, Bank House, 22 Henry Street. If you would like more information please call on 0161 330 9223. Children under 13 years require a parent or carer to attend with them.

P.E.Kits - Please make sure your child has their P.E. kit in school every day. This term we will be going to the scout hut each week and another session will be delivered weekly at school. The timing of this will very much be dictated by the weather, so it is important that children have their kit available. P.E. pumps are required for indoor lessons and trainers are ideal for outdoors. Please make sure everything is labelled clearly.

Water Bottles - We have recently taken delivery of a new supply of school water bottles. FODS have kindly provided these for every child in school. If your child’s needs replacing then their teacher will do this. Thank you to FODS for their fundraising efforts that allow these items to be provided free of charge.
