Celebration Assemblies

We hold celebration assemblies at each site on Friday. The Wilkes Street site (nursery, reception and year 1) have an assembly in the morning and the Conduit Street site have their assembly in the afternoon. The parents of the children who have won an award that week are invited to see their children receive an award. We send invitations using the Parentmail electronic system. Please make sure you are registered as all communications throughout the year are primarily sent home this way.

Nut Allergies

As we have a small number of pupils in school with nut allergies we would ask that parents and carers exercise extreme care and consideration when planning the contents of lunch boxes. Reactions to coming into contact with nuts and nut products can be very serious indeed for nut allergy sufferers. We are therefore asking that NO nut products are brought into school. Lunch boxes will be monitored and nut products will be removed.

We appreciate your support in this matter.

Car Parks

Please can parents be reminded that the school car parks are for staff cars only unless a prior arrangement has been made. At the Wilkes Street Site there is no admittance at any time (this includes Nursery lunches and collection from after school clubs).

At the Conduit Street Site dropping off and picking up at Scalliwagz is permissible between 7:30am – 8:10am and after 4:30pm in the evening. Again no access to parent’s cars collecting from after school clubs.

Please note at all other times gates will be closed, this includes the pedestrian gates, if you use these gates could we please ask that you close them. Safeguarding our children is a priority and we appreciate your cooperation in this matter.


Train to Teach

Our schools direct training offers a high quality programme that addresses a variety of skills required to succeed in this demanding, yet extremely rewarding profession.  Through the Northern Alliance, our  primary schools work in collaboration with Blue Coat school and Liverpool Hope University to share and guide in our sound pedagogy.

In embarking on this intense learning journey, you will be supported by our dedicated staff, who will help you to develop the knowledge and understanding needed to become an excellent practitioner.

We believe that the best way to learn about how to become a teacher is to have the opportunity to develop good practice under the guidance of working alongside class teachers.  The ability to reflect and evaluate on what we do is a skill that we can only develop through practise.  With highly trained staff to mentor and through sensitive coaching, we are proud to help and nurture our primary school teachers of the future.
