Don’t forget, we’re taking part in the Big Peddle this year.
Let’s see if we can get the whole school walking, riding, scooting or wheeling to school from the 19th-30th April.
There are daily prizes for the top schools across the country too!
What a great way to start the summer term.

Comic Relief 2021//php the_excerpt(); ?>
Thank you to everyone who donated to our Comic Relief collection today helping us to raise (so far) an incredible
The money raised will help Comic Relief to support organisations all over the UK and around the world.
This really demonstrates how important our school values are to the whole Coopers Lane community. Taking Responsibility for making a positive change in the world, showing Kindness towards others, and giving Love to those who need it most.
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s pupils from Coopers Lane Primary School channelling their
inner superhero for Red Nose Day!
Red Nose Day is back on Friday 19 March and this year it aims to bring the UK together (although we may be apart) to show just how powerful humour can be
through the toughest of times.
REMINDER: At Coopers Lane, will be joining in by dressing up and donating our spare change. If they want to, on Friday 19th March, children can come to school dressed up as their favourite superhero, dressed in red or just wearing a Red Nose/Red Nose Day clothing! We will have collection buckets out at drop-off and collection for any spare change that you might have.
From Wonder Woman to Superman, the day of dress up will put the power to change the world in pupils’ hands as they take part in some superhero-inspired activities to raise money for Red Nose Day. By channelling their inner superhero, pupils will be able to unleash their superpowers to support people living incredibly tough lives across the UK and around the world. The money raised by Red Nose Day will support people in the UK around the world, and help tackle homelessness, abuse and mental health stigma.
We look forward to sharing this event together and showing the ‘power of funny’.
School Street//php the_excerpt(); ?>
We are pleased to confirm that Pragnell Road is now a school street, meaning that it will be closed to most traffic from Monday 8th March at key times in the day. Only residents or blue badge holders will be able to access the road at drop off and pick up times. This will help to make the journey to and from school much safer for our whole community. Please plan ahead! We hope that many of you will decide to walk, ride or scoot into school, rather than driving. If you do drive, please be respectful when parking on neighbouring streets. Do not park over drive ways. Park sensibly and then walk the rest of the way into school.
School reopening to all pupils 8th March//php the_excerpt(); ?>
Re: Schools Reopening to All Pupils
I hope you all had a lovely half term break and managed to enjoy time with your families. As you probably know by now, the government announced on Monday that schools will reopen to all pupils on Monday 8th March. This is fantastic news and I am sure like me you are really pleased with this decision. The staff at school are very excited about welcoming the children back to Coopers Lane.
We are already making plans and putting in place everything needed in order for the children to return safely on the 8th March. For the most part, everything will remain the same as it was throughout the Autumn term. The government guidance remains relatively unchanged and we will be continuing to work in year group bubbles, keeping the need to mix between year groups to a minimum.
We have updated the parent/carer handbook, which has all the information you need concerning the school reopening to all pupils. You can access this, along with updated drop-off and pick-up times, on the school website Covid page:
In order to give teachers time to prepare the classrooms and to meet in teams to plan for all of the children being back in school, there will be no live zoom sessions or feedback given on Friday 5th March. However, lesson videos and activities will be provided on Google Classroom as normal on this day. If your child has been in school during this lockdown, but you are able to keep them at home on Friday 5th March, we would really appreciate it.
This has been a really challenging time for everyone, but thankfully we can now begin to see a brighter future. Thank you for your incredible support throughout the lockdown, both to your children and to the school. Our community has really pulled together throughout this time and we should all be proud of what we have achieved.
I look forward to seeing you and the children on Monday 8th March.
