What's been happening?
Monday 5th September 2016 - Children returned to school (or started school for the first time in Rockets class or joined our school from elsewhere) - everyone looked so smart and PRIDE IN OUR APPEARANCE will be a big focus this year - well done!
Friday 9th September - Roald Dahl Character DRESS-UP DAY & 'Read Dahl Out Loud' competition. We raised over £75 for seriously ill chidren and brave children from each of the classes read an excerpt from Roald Dahl - they were superb and Sophie from Pegasus won a Roald Dahl dictionary for her class whilst Margaret from Phoenix class won some Roald Dahl novels.
Wednesday 14th - Friday 16th September - Year 6 (Phoenix class) went on their residential trip to Hothersall Lodge and had a fantastic time. They climbed trees, canoed on a lake, excelled at archery, went caving, pond-dipping and on a night-time walk listening to nature (and Jacob!). The staff and children came back exhausted but with memories, confidence, smiles and deeper friendships - a big well done.
Monday 19th September - Reception children are in all day (for the rest of the year) - they are settling in really well and we are very impressed with how grown up they are being and how delightfully they are behaving - well done Rockets!
Thursday 22nd September - INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL PHOTOS - the children looked gorgeous and the smiles were fabulous. The photos will be ready soon for parents to order.
Thursday 22nd to Wednesday 28th September - SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR - lots of excellent books this year. Well done to our two 'Reading Challenge' winners who both chose the latest David Walliams book as their prize
Monday 26th September - some of our children from Year 3, 5 and 6 took part in an International Language Day learning about the cultures and languages of a variety of nations and traditions including Gypsy, Bangladeshi, Russian and Polish.
Thursday 29th September - HARVEST ASSEMBLY (toiletries & tins) was wonderful. Some of Year 6 children read out their 'thanks' and we collected lots of items for homeless young people in the Leyland area which we presented to Tony from SLEAP - thank you
Tuesday 4th October - clubs have started!
Thursday 6th October - visit to Year 6 of the vicar from St James' Parish church who told the children all about confirmation as part of their RE curriculum study ito Christianity.
Thursday 6th October - well done to our footballers who took part in their first matches in this year's football tournament.
Wednesday 12th October (9am) - MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING thank you to all those parents who supported our event raising money for MacMillan Nurses. So far we have raised £400 - wonderful!
Tuesday 18th October - The Bethany choir from Tanzania visited Seven Stars today and performed songs and dances for the chidlren. They were truly amazing and the children enjoyed learning all about their culture and music. (Further pictures and videos on our music curriculum page)

‘since my children have joined this school progression has been brilliant’
Welcome to the website for Seven Stars community primary school. We pride ourselves in knowing our children and their families well and having high ambitions for every child in our school.
We make learning fun through our Learning Journeys curriculum and children traditionally make excellent progress during their time with us. We place great emphasis on visits and visitors to stimulate experience-based learning. In the last few months we have had visits from Celed Rock experts, the local police, an Indian dancer, a local rock band and a 'History man' as well as taken children on trips to Spaceport in Wallasey, a Hindu Mandir, a farm in Bolton and the Maritime museum in Liverpool.
100% of our teaching is good or outstanding and the children themselves are friendly, welcoming and enthusiastic about their learning. This year our Reading results were above the national average, our phonics results were the best in four years as were our end of Reception class results.
At Seven Stars School we believe that every child matters and as a school we work closely with parents, families, guardians and all agencies to ensure the best possible outcomes for all the children in our care.
I look forward to meeting you and if you would like a visit to the school, send me an email or have a chat on the phone please get in touch.
High Five netball winners!
Well done to our fantastic netballers who won their first two matches of the season tonight. They also looked great in their new sports hoodies. Keep it up!
Our Nursery is
We achieved the Step into Quality Mark in December and have decided to offer full-time Nursery places for any parents who would like them. Parents can have as many sessions as they like and the first 5 sessions (morning from 8.50am or afternoon from 12.15pm) are free. Any other sessions cost £10 per session (so a full week would cost £50 with free lunchtime supervision). We have a Nursery teacher and very experienced key workers in place who would love to meet your child.
If you are interested please contact the school on 01772 422503
We also run a breakfast club from 8am which costs £1.50 per child in the main school hall.
