P70900999 children from year 6 have recently spent a day with Mark and Tony from Salford Sailing Club based at Pennington Flash. They alerted Year 6 to the dangers of playing near water. There are many reports of children (mainly boys) who get into difficulties in water and sometimes pay for this with their lives. A great day out with a very useful purpose. This was a really good example of The Police and our Local Authority playing a proactive role in preventing loss of life by using  their resources to best effect. Thanks to the BOYS and to Mrs Royle for supporting the trip. Excellent behaviour from Year 6!!

In support of the campaign group ‘Brake’ we walked around the field today as a school. Our banner urged drivers to slow down to 20 mph in built up areas and around schools as a means of saving lives in any future accidents. It was wet and windy and our banner got a little soggy!Brake
