Dear Families

Please see below the latest Newsletter. As always, please take the time to look at the information within this Newsletter. It is being put on the website and onto Dojo.


Useful Links for parents of children with Special Needs.

If you have a child of any age with additional needs you may find some of these websites provide helpful information about the type of help and support you could access.


Leisure activities:


Larkhall Primary Campus Family Centre will be running free courses for all at our Family Centre from 3rd May 2023.

Baby and Us is a 9 week course, starting 4rd May, which helps parents learn practical skills for everyday life. The course will provide support with:

  • You may be aware from media coverage, that the National Education Union (NEU) has declared strike action. The two dates for these to take place are:

    Thursday 27th April
    Tuesday 2nd May

We are working closely with our staff union representatives to keep up to date with the situation, and I will inform you of the final arrangements as soon as possible.

I’m sorry about the potential disruption to you, and to your child’s education. I understand that this situation may be frustrating.


Eid Mubarak to all our families who are celebrating with their loved ones today. We wish you all the best!


All families will today receive their child’s Class Newsletter for summer term 1. These Newsletters are sent out at the start of each half term and are such an important part of home-school communication. They outline the learning content your child will be covering this term. Of course, after reading this Newsletter, you would like to know more about how to support your child at home, then please speak to your child’s class teacher.

That’s it from me. If there is anything else myself or a member of the team can do to help and support you during this time, please do not hesitate to get in touch in the usual ways. I am also always on the Gaskell Street gates each morning from 8:30am.

Best wishes
