Welcome to Mrs Kababji and Mrs Brownley who have joined the Year 1 class.  Mrs Kababji is a PGCE student teacher from Edge Hill University, who will be with us until the end of the school year. And Mrs Brownley, has now joined the KS1 team, having previously been working in KS2. Both staff members are very excited to be working in year 1 and cannot wait to help the children ‘Reach for the Stars’.



It has been a very challenage time for us all, and in so many ways. I am so proud of all of the children. Both you and your children have all worked so hard and have shown such resiliance and determination during this time. Thank you for your continued support and North Walkden team spirit.
