Headteacher

Following our latest inspection, we are pleased to announce our school is ‘outstanding in all areas’. Our Ofsted Report is available for you to read here Ofsted Report March 2019.Thank you for all your support.

 

My name is Mrs Thomas and I have the privilege of being the Head Teacher of Mersey Park Primary School. We are very proud of our school and its community. We promote a friendly family atmosphere where everyone is encouraged to show care for each other. We aim to ensure that everyone in our school feels safe and secure in their learning environment. We also promote high standards of achievement for all, encouraging pupils to work hard and persevere at tasks they may find difficult.

Our three main values ‘Be Nice’, ‘Work Hard’ and ‘Never Give Up’ are central to everything we do and all children have been involved in deciding what these values mean to them. We offer an exciting curriculum which has been designed to engage all our children and help them develop a love of learning. We hope this website will give you more insight into our school and provide you with important information. If you require a paper copy of any of the information, please contact the school office to arrange a supply free of charge.

What's On
  • Annual Flu Vaccination October 14, 2019 .

    Your child’s annual flu vaccination is now due.

    Children in foundation 2 and years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are being offered a flu vaccination in school. This vaccination is recommended to help protect your child against flu. Flu can be an unpleasant illness and sometimes causes serious complications.  Vaccinating your child will also help protect more vulnerable friends and family by preventing the spread of flu.

    You will have received a leaflet and consent form. Please complete the consent form (one for each child) and return it to school.

    The vaccination is free and is a quick and simple spray up the nose.  Even if your child had it last year, it is recommended to have the flu vaccine again this year.

    The leaflet contains some commonly asked questions about flu and the vaccination, including details about the small number of children for whom the nasal vaccine is not appropriate. Since the programme was introduced, most children offered the vaccine in schools have had the immunisation.

    The vaccination session for your school will be on: Monday 14th October 2019

    If you have any queries, please contact the Healthcare team on 0151 514 2510

    The children will need to wear casual trousers or jogging bottoms, long sleeved tops, a waterproof coat and wellies or old trainers.  All clothes should preferably be old as they may get dirty!

    If the weather is good, please ensure that your child has a sun hat/cap and sun screen should be applied before they arrive at school. They will also need to bring a packed lunch in a disposable bag (no glass bottles please).  If your child is entitled to a free school meal and you would like a packed lunch to be prepared by the kitchen, please return the slip at the base of your letter to school.

    We would appreciate a voluntary contribution of £3.00 per child to help cover the cost of this trip.  All payments should be made via ParentPay.  If you have any problems accessing ParentPay please call into the school office where we will be happy to help you.
