Weekly Newsletter – 29 March 2021

Dear parents and carers

Thank you and well done to everyone!

Well! We have made it to the end of term! And what a turbulent term it has been. Throughout the challenges of lockdown and remote learning, the school community has been amazing. Together we have maintained learning for the children and this leaves us in a strong place to move forward.

Thanks very much to everyone who supported our pupils in their learning during this time: teachers, teaching assistants, support staff, parents and grandparents – well done to you all! Let’s hope that, as the vaccination programme rolls out and restrictions start to be lifted, we can look forward to a terrific summer term for the children. There are lots of exciting things to look forward to including Year 3 and Year 4 starting their swimming sessions on Tuesday 20 April. I will update you further on everything else after the break.

I wish you all a restful and enjoyable Easter holiday. Let’s hope that the sun shines.

Easter lunch

A special Easter lunch is available on Wednesday. The menu is available on the website.

Please note it will be Fish & Chips on Thursday not Curry.

Red Nose Day

We raised a fantastic £263 for Red Nose Day thank you to everyone who took part.

Notify school of a confirmed case

Please note that, like at the end of last term, if a child tests positive for Covid up to 2pm on Saturday (5pm for children at Link Club), you will need to let school know by emailing

Please note that the term ends this Thursday and that school closes between 1.40pm and 2.10pm for the Easter holidays. School opens again on Monday 19 April with the same staggered times as this term.

Reminder: It is still very important that we adhere to government guidance regarding social distancing and staying safe. After dropping off or collecting your child(ren), please leave quickly and do not hang around to speak to other parents.

Thanks very much everyone. Please take care and stay safe. Kind regards.

Craig Richardson, Headteacher


Easter Egg Trail 1st to 14th April


Over the Easter holidays Frodsham WI is setting out an Easter Egg Hunt around the lovely green spaces of Frodsham.

 Sorry, these aren’t chocolate ones, just 110 pained wooden ones. The idea is the follow the trail round the town and see how many you can spot. But please don’t remove them or they won’t be there for other children to find.

 You might discover places, like Marshlands or Manley Copse that you’ve never been to before.

Included here is a list of places to visit and how many eggs to hunt for, and a map showing you where those places are.

Happy Hunting everyone, and remember to stick to current government guidelines.
