Mission Statement


We aim to make the community a better place by helping charities, local families and local businesses.

For our first community project we have asked for donations to be made to Blackburn Hospital instead of gifts being brought into school.

Hopefully we will raise lots of money for the NHS as they are awesome!

Cards for Kindness

The Year 2 Community Group have arranged for the children in their class to make Christmas cards this week.  The cards have  been  sent to residents and staff at local care homes as part of the Cards for Kindness campaign which aims to help spread cheer and ease loneliness in care homes at Christmastime. What a lovely gesture Year 2, I’m sure your cards will be greatly appreciated!


Red Nose Day!

The Community Group organised a Crazy Hair Day in school to raise money for this very worthy charity!  It was a whole school fund raising event and it was lovely to see such an array of colour and fun across school on Friday! Such a fantastic effort from children and staff!

Thank you from the Community Group!

Autumn Term

We had our first meeting to introduce ourselves and to decide on what our mission statement, or motto, was going to be for this year. We came up with the one above. For most of us in this group, it is the first time we have been elected to be a Pupil Voice Co-ordinator and we are super excited to have been chosen this year! At our meeting we also decided on our action plan for the year. We are going to be doing the following:

  • Helping to interview any new staff who want to come and work at our school
  • Check the displays around school and in the classrooms to make sure they are looking their best, show off our learning and inspire us to learn more.
  • Look through the children's books to see what we're all learning across school



Sports & Extra Curricular Group 


“Sports for all - All for sport.”




Our new pupil voice team have been busy collecting information from their peers regarding clubs and groups they would like to see in school this year.  They will soon be feeding back to Miss Pennington and Mrs Wilton, who will try to put some of their ideas into place.


Phoebe and Ethan have been doing a great job presenting sports reports in our Friday worship.  Cayden and Rafal have been busy taking photos of our sporting superstars and the rest of the team are making sure that our playtime equipment is returned carefully at the end of break times.





In our recent meeting, the children reported back that the playground equipment is still not being used properly and needs monitoring further before they think about ordering any new kit.


The children had also conducted some research into clubs that each class wants to be offered as an extra-curricular activity.  Some suggestions were drawing club, dance, basketball and dodgeball.  Miss Pennington fed this information back to Mrs Wilton (clubs co-ordinator) and she is looking into this for us.  Phoebe is also going to work with Sude to come up with a suitable dance routine for Year 2/3 children and will deliver this as an after school club, supervised by Miss Gahagan. 


We also discussed the visit from former Olympian Daniel Purvis.  If you would like to check our out photos from the event, please click on our PE curriculum page.  The children had spoken to their peers and the feedback from the visit was extremely positive.  They would like other high profile visitors to come into school to inspire them in the future.  They suggested possibly an artist or dancer.  They are going to ask their classes and see what suggestions they can come up with.

The Well-being Group 


''To promote the emotional health and well-being of each and every member of our school.''

Chorley Hedgehog Rescue Centre

We are a group of hard-working students who want to promote a school environment where all children have the same rights, share responsibilities and are equally respected.


We meet with Miss Bryan to discuss issues that we find within school and with the aim of promoting respect.



We are planning to hold a respect day to raise awareness of the importance of respecting everyone around us.



We are also trying to find solutions to the problems we encounter with the junior cloakrooms. We are looking forward to meeting with Mr Hudson to see if we can bounce our ideas off each other. We believe we should all have the right to better storage of our personal belongings and that it should be everyone's responsibilty to respect all belongings in the cloakrooms.
