New Starters 2021
We are very aware that you and your children have not had a chance to look around school. Some of our children have helped make a video during lockdown, so you can see the Oak Reception classroom, indoor and outdoor spaces. We hope you enjoy looking around.
We have also included lots of information for parents and carers, which should answer any questions that you may have.
If you do have any further questions, please email NewStarters@carrhead.lancs.sch.uk.

Your Child’s Health
ImmunisationsLetter from the School Nurse
If your child has asthma, we will need a named inhaler and spacer (if required) to be left in school at all times. Please order spares of each now so you have it in time for your child starting school. We will also need instructions from the doctor about dosage. This will either be on the named label on the inhaler box, or on your child’s asthma plan. If you child does not already have a plan please print the attached and complete it with the doctor/asthma nurse the next time your child has an appointment. Bring the completed form into school and we will keep a copy to help support your child in school.Asthma Care Plan
If your child has an allergy, it is very important that school are aware. If your child develops an allergy, please inform school immediately.
If your child requires medication for their allergy, we will need this to be kept in school. at all times. Please order/buy spare medication now, so you have have it in time for your child starting school.
If your child has an Epi-pen, please contact school direct so we can discuss this further,.
We are lucky to have an amazingly supportive PTFA group within school comprising of Mums, Dads, Carers, Grandparents and teachers. A lovely friendly group who are fab to work with. Unfortunately, they are not able to arrange events for the foreseeable future, but if you would like to be involved at a later date, it is a great way to meet people and support school.
School Dinners and Milk
All children in KS1 infants are entitled to a Universal Free School Meal (UFSM) as part of a government initiative.
All food is cooked on site. Carr Head is a ‘Fresher Plus’ school which means that most meat is fresh (not frozen), and pizza products/dough etc are handmade from scratch by our cook Tracy. Please see menu link below. Please note. Due to COVID restrictions, we are currently only able to offer 2 meal choices per day. This is to save time, because we are having to stagger dinner times across the school so that class bubbles don’t mix.
If you are in receipt of one of the following you may be entitle to additional benefits such as free milk etc. Please contact school to find out more.
Milk is provided by a private company and delivered to school. It is free to children under the age of 5, and for those entitled to Free School Meals (income/benefit dependent). If you wish your child to have milk, please register now with Coolmilk at https://www.coolmilk.com/parents/
If you have any questions, which have not been answered above, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help.
We will also post answers here to help other parents.
Thanks for taking time to view our website. We hope to welcome you to our Carr Head family.
We have a Crossing Patrol outside school. Please read the attached safety leaflet with your child so they can learn the safest way to cross the road.
