Latest News


WE have been working hard over the last few days on securing an appropriate site for ALL our pupils to stay together whilst the repairs to the Academy building are being done. Our aim was to find a suitable building which would be large enough for our 230 children to continue their Burnley Road journey together, enabling their education to grow with the least disruption and to have a fun experience they will remember. As you can probably appreciate, this task has not been easy.

To achieve this, we have acquired a large unit on the Moderna Business Park in Mytholmroyd which had already been divided into classroom sized rooms. Work is currently underway to ensure fittings and fixtures are suitable for all our children, no matter what age or year group they are in. Staff will be working next week during the holidays to make classrooms ready for children.

If everything goes to plan, we hope that children can start at the new site on Monday 24th February.

We understand that there may be lots of questions about the new arrangement and we will try to keep you informed with as things are going.

Thank you for your patience and understanding so far and, please feel assured, we have the welfare, happiness and education of all our children at the forefront of our plans.




We are very sorry to inform parents and pupils that, due to the level of damage in school from the flooding, we will not be open for the rest of this week.

It will take a long time to dry and refurbish the school and work begins tomorrow in restoring our school.

We are in the process of arranging alternative accommodation and will let you know about this ASAP.

Sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.    



NSPCC Visits 7th and 8th January

All Ks1 and 2 children were involved in work with the NSPCC this week. Assemblies took place on Tuesday and Year 5 and 6 took part in workshops on Wednesday.

The children thought about their right to be safe, learned who to talk to when they feel worried and memorised the Childline telephone number 0800 11 11.


Forest Activities - Fantastic Fun Whatever the Weather

Children from every class have had a great time at during Forest Activities this term.  We persevered and had lots of fun in spite of the wet, chilly weather. Activities have included searching for wildlife, making mini beasts out of clay, building and testing waterproof dens and harvesting vegetables from our polytunnel. We have improved our bush craft techniques whilst whittling sticks into interesting shapes, made bird nests from hay and wool, found the ages of some of our trees and learnt some tree names. We have also begun thinking about the sustainability of woodland areas and forest maintenance, and cleared parts of the woodland, moving fallen logs to clear a path through the wood. We are looking forward to our next sessions in November.
