We are a Healthy School too!

We've gone award mad this week!  We are proud to announce that our status as a Health School has been renewed.  The adjudicator even said that ours was one of the best schools she'd visited!  

"The Improving Health and Well Being Staffordshire Healthy Schools Programme quality assures schools provision for health and well being including anti bullying policy and procedures. It also provides an effective framework for schools to develop specific areas and to show impact through measured outcomes." Staffordshire County Council

Congratulations to everyone involved!

We are a Gold School!

We are very excited to announce our new status as a Sainsbury's School Games Gold school!  You can find our new award logo at the bottom of this page.

Congratulations to all staff involved for their hard work towards achieving this award!

Best Summer Fayre Ever!

What a glorious day we had for the Summer Fayre!  People turned out in droves to enjoy the sunshine, have Mrs Tapp decorate their nails, watch Mr Fuller almost suffocate from the barbecue smoke, take on the skipping challenge and watch the Dakota C-47 fly past plus much more! Thank you to everyone who attended, we managed to raise an amazing £1500, our best yet! Well done to our super-hard-working PTA!

 

A warm welcome to the Picknalls First School website

  

 At Picknalls First School we put the children first. We are committed to fostering a love of learning and ensuring our children meet their potential by developing a modern, creative and personalised curriculum to prepare them for the future. We want all the children to be successful learners, who really enjoy learning, make progress and achieve. Our aim is to develop confident individuals who are able to live a safe, healthy and fulfilling life. We want them to be responsible citizens who can make a positive contribution to society.

 

   "Children get a good start to their education in the Nursery and Reception classes.  Pupils are polite, courteous and they behave well in lessons and around school.  This is because staff care for them successfully." - OFSTED July 2013
