Additional Update - Monday 18th July

 

Due to the extreme heat, we will not be able to go ahead with our Sports Day tomorrow unfortunately.  We are very disappointed, but we are sure you will understand.

 

  • The Year 10 trips tomorrow will still go ahead of course
  • Students in school follow the same dress code as they have today
  • Years 7, 8 and 9 will have their usual 5 lessons for Blue Tuesday.

 

We are keeping the planned ice cream van for the day.  Every class in school will be taken down during one of their lessons to buy an ice cream if they wish to do so.  With this in mind, £3 will be the maximum required.

 

FINALLY, an important message received today by Greater Manchester Fire Service

 

Water Safety Information

We know that hot weather creates a temptation for children to want to cool down in water and we have been sharing water safety messages over the last week.

Unfortunately despite all the work that GM Fire and Rescue Service and our partners put into sharing water safety messaging whenever there is a warm spell some young people still head for open water. Over the weekend there have been a number of incidents with young people getting into difficulty and needing rescuing from open water. You may have seen in the media reports of a 16 year old who tragically drowned at Salford Quays on Saturday. This occurred just a few hours after Firefighters had rescued a 15 year old who was struggling in the water in a different area of the quays.

The most simple message is “Cold Water Shock Can Kill” and information about the campaign including videos of people who have lost their loved ones to drowning can be found here Water Safety.

 

For younger pupils aged 5-8 there is an online Water Safety Game which can be found here Water Safety Story
