School Newsletter – Friday 29th June 2018

Dear Parents,

Today’s Pirate Day was a great success and everyone looked fantastic in the costumes, keep an eye out on Facebook for photographs soon.

The children were very well behaved on Tuesday on the Whole School trip to Spaceport and the Mersey Ferry.  Well done everyone.

Year 6 Transition day for all high schools in Rochdale is on Tuesday 3rd July.  Wednesday 4th Wardle Academy have a second induction day.

On Tuesday 10th July Elm and Birch class will be performing their end of year show, The Rocky Monster Show.  Tickets are on sale from Monday, 02nd July.  This is a ticket only event so please buy them when they come on sale, don’t leave to the last minute and miss out!

Friday, 13th July is the Primary Prom, a free party for the whole school with a licenced bar for the parents downstairs.  Further details will follow.

In September 2018 the class structure for the school will be as follows:

Class

Age Group

Next week we will be talking to the children about which class the children will be in.  This is particularly important to the children in year groups which are split into two classes.  At Stansfield Hall we split the children on a range of criteria and make the decision based on the child’s best interests pastorally and academically, as such children’s attitude to learning, social groupings and ability are all taken into account when coming to this decision.

Reminder, school returns after summer on Wednesday, 5th September for all but reception who start on Monday, 10th September 2018.

Thank you

Mr. R. Walthall
