A group of secondary school students swapped the classroom for the boardroom when they spent the day at a firm of accountants and business advisers.

Year 11 Business Studies pupils from Rhyddings Business and Enterprise School in Oswaldtwistle visited Cassons in Haslingden to take a look behind the scenes and get a taste of how real businesses are run.

Year 7 Science Practical

My Year 7 Science class have been learning about forces. They’ve been doing a lot of work calculating speed and distance, and on Tuesday we were out on the yard doing a practical which involved them calculating a distance, running that distance and having it timed so that we could calculate their speed.

The students were very enthusiastic (no doubt helped by the sunny weather!) and every single student completed the practical to the best of their abilities.

Well done!

Miss Bedwell.

ParentPay Update

Logo_PPImportant changes to ParentPay 

All parents will need to use a verified email address as their username from 03 March 

What’s happening and when?

From 17 February, parents who login with a username that is not a verified email address will be prompted to change their username. Parents will have until 03 March to make the necessary changes if they wish to continue to use ParentPay.

Why are we making this change?

School staff are getting an ever increasing number of username and / or password reset queries from parents – taking up valuable time.

To reduce the number of ‘forgotten login’ related requests, we, like other major online services will require our users to have a verified email address as a username.

Why this is better for parents and schools?

Easy to remember – An email address isn’t easy to forget, so less people will be requesting username resets.

Quick password resets – Having a verified email address means users can reset passwords themselves – within minutes; better for them and no support required from schools.

What do parents need to do?

The vast majority of parents already use a verified email address as their username and will not need to take any action.

Those parents that are required to switch to a verified email address will be prompted as they login and presented with advice on how to make necessary changes.

If you require further information, please download the following guidance information.

To all parents and carers

As we break up, we’d like to thank you for your continued support throughout the first part of this school year.  If you are thinking of replacing any items of uniform during the break or your child is considering any piercings, change of hair style or colour etc., please could we ask you to refer to our uniform policy. You will find this under the ‘PARENTS’ section of the school website.

Thank you and we hope you enjoy the break.

Blackburn College Taster Courses

Blackburn College is running the ‘Young Hair and Beauty’ and ‘Young Chef’ award again this year.

These clubs are usually extremely popular with those students who are thinking of studying a Hair/ Beauty or Catering / Hospitality course at college. Both clubs are taking place on the college campus over four Saturdays in February and March.

The clubs offer students the chance to learn some basic skills and get a taste of their chosen course, as well as receiving an award at the end. This may help those who wish to pursue a career or have applied/ looking to apply to a college course in these particular areas.
