Thank you to parents…

Thank YouMany thanks to all who were able to attend our Parents Evening on 16th November. It was a great turnout, with parents and carers having the opportunity to meet with Pastoral staff, purchase items produced by our Enterprise Group and learn more about our Artsmark work, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and the newly introduced Forest Schools Programme. We all enjoyed the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress.

Thank you also for taking home the latest copy of the Digital Parenting magazine. Parents and Carers who were unable to attend will receive a copy, which will be sent home with their child. We urge you to read and make use of the good advice in the magazine, as it is vital to keep our children safe online.

Peter PanWe look forward to seeing Parents and Carers again very soon for the Christmas Pantomime, which this year is Peter Pan. It will take place on the afternoon of 19th December (1pm arrival for a 1.15 pm start). See you there – watch out for pirates and crocodiles!

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!
