Path leading to the Parents' Car Park
Welcome to our vast outdoor spaces, where the joys of play and adventure await our children.
These grounds are filled with opportunities for laughter, exploration, and boundless fun.
From our open playing fields to the bustling yard and various outdoor play areas, we offer a diverse range of activities to cater to every child's interests.
Our obstacle courses and climbing frames challenge their physical abilities, while the picnic benches provide cosy spots for shared moments and socialising.
We also understand the importance of tranquility; providing calm areas where children can unwind and find solace amidst the energetic atmosphere.
We believe that play is not just a break from work, but an integral part of a child's development, fostering imagination, social skills, and overall well-being. Lifelong memories are made in the playground!
We provide a dedicated car park for our parents that can accommodate plenty of cars, accessible from Helmshore Road.
From the parents' car park, follow the path that leads up past St Veronica's hall and through the side gate. The main entrance and reception area are located directly in front of you, offering easy access and a convenient drop-off point for your child.
On your walk from the car park to the school you will find St Veronica's hall, a hub of activity and a space where memories are made. Beyond the hall, we have more green space, which together with the hall, serve as a gathering place for the local village community. From festive celebrations to community events, our school opens its doors and extends a warm welcome to everyone, playing an integral role in fostering a sense of togetherness and belonging. At St Veronica's, we take pride in being an active and cherished part of our vibrant community.
And here we are. Welcome! Upon entering the school through the main doors, visitors will find our reception area located to the right-hand side. Here, Mrs Haworth will greet you and assist with any initial queries you may have. Beyond the reception, visitors will step into our entrance hall, which is adorned with colourful and creative displays showcasing our children's special work.
On your left, you'll find a corridor that leads you to our EYFS and Key Stage 1 classes: Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, where your child will embark on their journey with us.
Along the way, you'll also discover our cosy library and peaceful quiet area, perfect for children to immerse themselves in the joy of reading.
On your right-hand side, you will find the corridor leading to our Headteacher's office and toilets.
Stepping through the door into our spacious resource area, you will have access to some of our Key Stage 2 classes, including Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5.
Moreover, the resource area opens up to our school hall where our children engage in school assemblies, lunchtime, dramatic performances, and indoor sports activities.
The last corridor branching off from our entrance hall will lead you straight to our learning zone and our final classroom, Year 6, where your child will complete their educational journey with us before moving on to secondary school.
