Giant Spectacular 5th Oct

1st October 2018

Just a reminder about the upcoming giants visit to New Brighton this Friday 5th October.

The Wirral parade will be along New Brighton promenade and it is expected that the event will attract a vast number of visitors to the area which may make it difficult for parents to access schools during peak times.

For these reasons, it has been agreed that pupils of schools situated within the Wallasey cluster will be able to visit The Giants without incurring an unauthorised absence. Families who would need to travel close to the route would also be able to collect their child from a Wallasey cluster school earlier than the usual time of closing to ensure safety.

Following many requests from parents/carers, we have arranged that you can pick your child/ren up at 1:30pm on Friday 5th October, from the usual collection point. However, if you are unable to pick your child up at 1:30pm he/she can remain at school until the usual finish time of 3:15/3:20pm.

Please be aware of high volumes of traffic and road closures in the area and allow plenty of time to travel: https://www.wirral.gov.uk/leisure-parks-and-events/giant-spectacular

If your child is in F1 and only comes in for afternoon sessions, you have the choice for them to either not attend their afternoon session, come in for the whole afternoon session or get picked up at 1.30pm. Please let your child’s class teacher know what your child will be doing on that day.

Please DoJo or contact your child’s class teacher if you are unable or do not want to collect your child at 1:30pm.
