Please may I confirm that children will break up for October half term week on Friday 26th October 2018, which is the same week as the majority of Oldham schools. An incorrect posting on our school website had indicated we would be on holiday the week earlier. This has been corrected and I apologise for the previous error.
If parents have already booked a holiday for the week of 22nd to 26th October, of course no fines will be issued.
For me and many teachers, the summer holiday is a time when we can enjoy reading a bit more extensively than we have the time for during the school term.
If you’re wondering what books to suggest for your own children, the following link has recommendations from the Book Trust:
If you would like recommendations by our own pupils, search above for “Literacy questionnaire” and you will see books recommended last year by our own pupils.
