Children in Need – Friday 17th November 2017

We’re joining in the national fundraising for BBC Children In Need this Friday, inviting children to bring their teddies into school to join them for lessons! All teddies will be going home again at the end of the day.

After a little bit of mixed-up communication, we have decided that it WILL be a non-uniform day, so please come to school wearing your own clothes – and don’t forget your Pudsey and Blush ears if you have them!

We’re asking for a donation of £1 to the Children In Need campaign, or an advent calendar that we can pass along to Rochdale Food Bank.
Children In Need will accept the old £1 coins so have a look down the back of the sofa!

Thank you so much for your support!

Jeans for Genes Friday 22nd September 2017

On Friday 22nd September we will be joining thousands of adults and children across the country paying £1 to wear jeans to school for the day. This will raise money for research and help for children who suffer from a genetic disorder. Genetic disorders affect 1 in 25 children in the UK .

Thanks in anticipation – Lowerplace School Council

Thanks to us and you from Rochdale Foodbank

Last week we received a lovely thank you letter from Rochdale Foodbank, who we as a school and you as a community support so well.  Our Easter raffle raised £174.51, which was donated to Rochdale Foodbank to help them support vulnerable families across Rochdale.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the causes that are important to us!

Red Nose fundraising!

We had a fantastic day last Friday, with children and staff coming to school with messy hair!  We had mohawks, plaits and crazy colours to show our support for Red Nose Day, and of course sold red noses!

We’re proud to announce that we’ve raised a fantastic £444.34 for this amazing cause!


Red Nose fun at Lowerplace!


We are really excited to be raising money for Red Nose Day 2017!  We will be selling Red Noses for £1 each on Thursday 23rd March and Friday 24th March. Also children can pay £1 to come to school with “Messy Hair” on Friday 24th March.  Uniforms must still be worn.

Children in Key Stage Two will be able to buy Red Noses at lunchtime in the playground. Key Stage One will be able to buy them in the classroom each day.

This year we have made the decision not to sell Red Noses to children in the Reception classes, as we find that they are often too big for little noses and are easily lost.  We’d still love them to have crazy hair and we’ll be giving everyone in Foundation Stage a special Red Nose Day sticker!

The whole school will take part in the messy hair day.  We only have a limited supply of Red Noses, so please send £1 in with your child on Thursday or Friday if they would like a Red Nose.

Thank you

The Lowerplace School Council
