Extra Curr Activities

Art Enrichment Day


We had a visit from a real artist who worked with us to make this wonderful Christian Values Tree! 

Generations Unite Club


We have the most wonderful time every monday when we take a group of children to Sutton Grange Care Home. We play games together, look at books and work on lovely group projects. 

Reporters' Day


Two children from Year 6 were chosen to attend a Reporters' Day held at Tarleton Academy. This was organised by the TARDiS cluster of schools in the local area.

They completed a memory task where they had to take it in turns to memorise information about rabbit show jumping and then order the facts in terms of importance. After that, they learnt about how to write a sports report using the 5 W's of report writing - what, who, why, when and where.

They have now been tasked with reporting on one of the upcoming TARDIS events. Each event this term will have a report written by children from one of the schools which we will publish on our website.

Look out for Lucy and Shay's report very soon!

School Games Award


We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games GOLD Mark Award for the 2018/19 academic year. This is the first time we have achieved the Gold standard having previously been awarded Bronze and Silver.

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

Spirit of Sport Pledge


All children in Year 6 in Lancashire were invited to write a Spirit of Sport Pledge with the winning entry being read out at the SPAR School Games finals in Blackpool on July 2nd. We were delighted when we were told that Chloe's pledge had been chosen out of all the entries received in West Lancashire. Chloe was able to attend the finals with her family as a VIP Guest, read out her winning pledge and also lead the team out at the Opening Ceremony. What a fantastic achievement! 



Children in Year 5 went with Miss Baines today to Banks St Stephens Bowling Club where they were shown the rules of bowling and then had a go themselves. The children quickly picked it up and were soon competing against each other and in teams. We have another 3 sessions at the Bowling Club in the next few weeks and the children have said they are really looking forward to going again. 


Children in Years 3-6 took part in the Dengineers event at Tarleton Academy on Friday 14th June. The children were tasked with building a shelter in the woods using materials they could find in the surrounding area. They also had to earn bamboo canes, rope and tarpaulin by finding tokens located around the school site.


The shelters were then judged by the staff at West Lancashire Sports Partnership on their stability, creativity and how waterproof they were - this was put to the test by throwing water over them whilst the children were underneath! There was also a certificate given for teamwork.


The Year 5 and 6 team won the certificate for the Most Stable Shelter and Years 3 and 4 won Most Creative Design. Well done to everyone who took part!



TASA Swimming Gala


Well done to our swimmers that took part in the Tarleton Active Schools Alliance Swimming Gala held at Edge Hill at Thursday 13th June. Everyone swam their best and represented our school well. We even came away with a few medals!

High Fives

This half term we are starting our High Fives Club for Years 5 and 6. We are lucky to have a specialist sports coach from West Lancashire Sports Partnership to run this after school club every Monday until the Summer Term.
