As you may be aware, new guidance has been issued regarding areas where it is advised that self-isolation should take place on return to the UK, this has affected some schools due to trips to Northern Italy over half term.

Following Laurence Jackson School’s Ofsted inspection in February 2019, the Department for Education believe that the best way for the School to make rapid and sustained improvement is by becoming a sponsored academy.
On Wednesday 9th October our school sports presentation evening took place. The evening was once again a fantastic occasion, celebrating the past year of sporting success at LJS.
Mrs Crawford had the pleasure of accompanying Mr Wyke and 7 Y11 girls (pictured above) last week to see them receive their Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award.
If you have any books you wish to donate to LJS library please feel free to bring them along and they will be added to our stock.
The following authors are especially well-liked: Roald Dahl, Jeff Kinney, Michael Morpurgo and Jaqueline Wilson. Series of books such as Harry Potter, Skulduggery Pleasant and The Wimpy Kid are particularly popular and will be useful additions to the library.
Books should be suitable for ages 9-16 and all contributions will be gratefully received.
Thank you for your help
Mrs C Nowell – Literacy Co-ordinator
