Free half term activities at Lifestyles

LifestylesLifestyles Gym has a brand new membership for young people, Activ8, and it’s launching soon – and to give you a taste of what’s to come Lifestyles has decided to make all activities this October half term absolutely FREE.

From Monday 23rd to Friday 27th October visit any participating centres where there’ll be a range of fun activities for children aged 8 to 16.

From pool inflatable fun to multi-sports activities and team games, there’ll be loads happening across Lifestyles centres.

And that’s not all! Some centres will be running exercise classes including Clubbercise, Zumba and Spin sessions to get you moving!

If that’s still not enough, you can also swim during public and family swim times and get stuck in at the gym all for FREE. Just make sure you check out centre timetables online for swim times.

Think Safety

Think Safety

As part of our ongoing commitment to keeping all our pupils as safe as possible, Childwall Abbey School had a “lockdown” alarm installed over the summer holiday. On Monday we will be letting all our pupils hear this sound (a calm voice giving instructions), when we are gathered together for assembly. The purpose of the alarm and “What happens next?” will be explained in a calm and non-threatening manner. This session will be followed up by opportunities to talk to form staff. A planned practice of the expected routine will take place within the following week.

We are informing you in advance so that you will be ready to talk to your child should they come home with any questions.

It is a fact of life, that we all have to be prepared and able to behave appropriately in the highly unlikely event of an emergency. Our pupils always respond well to fire drills and I am sure they will do the same in this instance.

Many thanks for your support in this matter.

Mrs Piercy

Welcome back…

Welcome Back

Welcome back to school everyone! An extra special welcome to anyone who is joining Childwall Abbey School for the first time this term. We hope you have enjoyed a happy summer holiday and are ready to enjoy learning together.

What an artistic year!

Our year of artistic activities came to an suitable end last week when some pupils attended the Philharmonic Hall to participate in a DaDaFest performance. They joined with pupils from other schools across Merseyside to perform at an evening performance. We would like to thank parents and carers for their continued support at such extra curricular events.

The Mayor and Mayoress came to watch too!

Parents Evening – Summer 2017

Happy School image On Thursday 6th July 2017, parents and carers are welcome to attend a Parents Evening at Childwall Abbey School (between 4pm – 5:30pm). You will have the opportunity to discuss your child’s academic, social and emotional progress, celebrate their achievements and share any concerns. We will have displays in the School Hall about our successes in the Duke of Edinburgh Award, the Artsmark, the Reading Quality Mark, Liverpool Counts Quality Mark and the Restorative Practices project. This term’s parental survey will be on Attendance Matters and we will be grateful to hear your views.

If you are unable to attend for any reason, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you with a meeting at another time.

Refreshments will be available to all our visitors. We look forward to seeing you soon.
