A range of notices and updates about various things this week - it is a busy time of year!

All years

  • Attendance - from Mrs Gorrill, our attendance officer: It is important that your child is in school and on time every day. Where possible, please book any appointments outside of school hours. Depending on the nature of the appointment, we will usually authorise half a day, and evidence of appointments will be required. You can email these to: attendance@waltonledale.lancs.sch.uk 
  • New school ties: On the first day back in September we will be swapping existing ties for the new ones for no charge, so please ensure your child continues to have a correct school tie up until the end of term.  We will charge for new ties where the old ones are not in a wearable condition (broken clip, drawn-on etc...)
  • Shin pads - notice from Mr Moore, Head of PE: For Sports Day (Friday 15th July), students will need shin pads for football in the morning. Without shin pads students will be not be able to play.  This is not a rule unique to our school - it is the case across all schools in our area.
  • Air Cadets Open Evening - Thursday 23 June:  Please see the poster here.
  • Families of students using Moving People School Buses: Please see email sent out on Tuesday  Due to driver shortages, Moving People have requested the changes.
