Bereavement Message 9th February 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce Mrs Janet Jackson, one of our most long serving and loved teachers, died on Sunday 7th of February. Many of pupils and their families will have worked closely with, and known Mrs Jackson as a Science teacher, Form teacher and in her role as SENCO - helping and supporting pupils and their families. School staff and our counsellor are available to help and support pupils. There is Professional help available and information on our school website - Bereavement. Please get in touch if you need our support we are here to help you in whatever way we can. Our thoughts are with Mrs Jackson's family at this time.
There is an online Book of Condolences being opened and the link to that is below if anyone wishes to pay their respects. We are very grateful for all the kind messages that have already been sent in.
Urgent Update Notice 28th January 2021
If anyone in your household has any illness symptoms, please keep your child at home until COVID-19 is ruled out. We are having children come in to school when there are symptoms in the family and then positive tests happening. This could close the school to everyone and make staff and pupils very ill. Thank you.
All school and St Helens Borough Council updates and letters can be found in our News Section at the bottom of the website - Coronavirus Update Headteacher and School Letters.
