Dear parents,

If you have any issues or concerns regarding your child/ren over the Easter holidays, please do not hesitate to contact me on head@bretherton.lancs.sch.uk

Although Bretherton school is temporary closed, children of our key worker families can access child places through our cluster Hub at Tarleton. Please contact me if your situation changes and childcare is required. We are open right through the Easter Holiday period and beyond.

Wishing you all a restful Easter ( whatever this may look like in your homes over the next couple of weeks) and we look forward to getting in touch again after the next 2 weeks.

Stay safe, keep well

Key worker guidance, by Mrs Moxham

Date: 20th Mar 2020 @ 7:31am


If you cannot safely look after your child/ren due to being employed as a keyworker, please complete the form on the education at home - letters to parents page or telephone school.

Apologies for any additional stress this has caused- we are operating in ever difficult times and guidance from the Government changes daily.

welcoming you in the morning, by Mrs Moxham

Date: 18th Mar 2020 @ 9:46am

Good morning,


From today, the children will be able to come straight into school at 8.45 in the morning to avoid gatherings on the playground and would encourage parents and adults collecting children to take additional precautions of spacial distancing at this moment in time. Children will continue to come in their usual doors and wash their hands on entry to continue our hygiene measures. 

If your child attends the hub, we will collect them from the door without the need for adults in school unnecessarily and on collection will return them to the door. Please just ring the bell as usual.  If you have any questions , please contact school or Kelly on the Hub phone. 

Thank you for understanding and supporting the measures that we are putting in place.

Health update, by Mrs Moxham

Date: 17th Mar 2020 @ 9:55am

Good morning, 


I thought it may be prudent to add information to the news page of the website as things change in relation to Government advice.

In accordance with the advice yesterday, we have noticed that some of our families have chosen to self isolate their whole families as a precaution based on a family member showing even mild symptoms. This is a decision for you to make on the advice from the Government and we respect that. It is important that we acknowledge that this will happen and not overly worry or see this as an indicator of increased cases within our community. The guidance is clear but ever changing so please review on the Government website regularly https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance

For those children in this position, I have set up a new page on the website with links to learning for each class. This can be found under Education at home' tab

If your child is off as they are displaying symptoms, they are ill and so there is no expectation of work, however if they would like to complete any of the activities or learning, we would be happy for them to share this with us on their return. 

We would be grateful if you could keep us fully informed via email Head@bretherton.lancs.sch.uk or bursar@bretherton.lancs.sch.uk or call on 01772 600431 so we can continue to assess the risk and make plans for our school.

If you have any concerns , please contact school as we are here to help and support our families at this time.

donations to OXFAM instead of Christmas Cards, by Mrs Moxham

Date: 2nd Dec 2019 @ 11:32am

Our postbox is available for children to post their letters to their friends - just remember to write clearly the recipient's name and class so we can pass it to them.

If however, you and your child would like to make Christmas special for others less fortunate, the children have come up with an idea of donating the money to OXFAM instead and purchasing a goat or chickens to support families feed themselves long after Christmas is over.

The link if you would like to know more is:https://www.oxfam.org.uk/shop/oxfam-unwrapped/charity-gift-card/super-goat-ou9010ml

If you would like to join our staff in donating, please send your donation in an envelope marked OXFAM to the school office. We'll let you know what we have managed to arange before the end of this term.
