I am writing to let you know about some changes and developments to our school curriculum from September. Over the last few months, Mrs McNeil (Assistant Headteacher) has been working closely with subject leaders across the school to further enhance and strengthen our wonderful bespoke curriculum at Vernon. Our themes will continue as a basis for each term in every year group, as they are extremely popular and enable children to become immersed in their learning throughout the term. We have spent time scrutinising our curriculum in every subject area, altering where necessary and adding learning opportunities or revising the structure to further enrich the children's experiences throughout their educational journey. We are all extremely proud of the rich, ambitious and vibrant curriculum on offer at our school. For more information, please read our revised curriculum statement here: http://www.vernonprimaryschool.com/page/curriculum-overview/44190. This webpage also includes our enhanced curriculum maps for each year group. You can find more detailed information about each subject within the dedicated webpages as always (these can be found on the dropdown menu under curriculum). We hope that the children at Vernon will continue to relish every learning opportunity on offer throughout each academic year!

Normally at this time of year we’d be holding a Summer Fair and raffle. Sadly, due to Covid-19 restrictions the fair cannot go ahead and we’ve moved the raffle online.
For £3 a ticket you are entered into 12 draws, with 12 chances to win £5000. This is a raffle with other PTAs, not just our school, which is why the prize amount is much higher than normal.
At the moment we’re raising funds to continue enhancing the outdoor spaces and play equipment for the children. Any support is greatly appreciated.
To find out more, and buy your tickets, please go to https://www.bigptaraffle.co.uk/support/vernon-primary-school-sk12 or search for Big PTA Raffle, select to buy tickets and search for Vernon Primary.
Thanks and good luck!

All the children and staff look fabulous in their green and blue outfits and the kitchen even made us some blue and green cake to help us celebrate!
We were so lucky to be chosen as the school to receive the virtual visit from The Royal Manchester Childrens' Hospital Charity patrons Max and Harvey. The children were treated to a live performance of their songs plus a question and answer session to the fabulous duo. Mrs Currall will be collecting with her bucket in the playground again at the end of school and will share the total raised next week. A huge thank you to everyone who has donated to this fantastic charity.
