Helmshore School has never been so quiet and empty! We are all missing the children, the parents, the structure of a school day and lots of other things too.
Whilst the school is closed, we are hoping to stay connected with you via newsletters, updates on the school website and twitter page. They will of course be different from our usual ones but we hope that through them we can share positivity and the wellbeing in our school community and signpost practical help and support.
If you have a child who is currently in his or her last year at primary school (Year 6) then you must apply for a secondary school place by Friday 31st October 2019. This is a national statutory deadline and late applications will not be dealt with alongside those which have been received by 31st October 2019. Late applicants may therefore be disadvantaged in terms of receiving an offer for one of their preferred secondary schools.
For further information regarding Secondary School applications for 2020 please contact the school office on 01706 213756.
