  • Digital Healthy Schools Programme

    Published 08/02/21

    We are delighted to inform you that Fisher More is taking part in the ‘Digital Healthy Schools Programme’, an initiative designed to educate our students on responsibly using mobile technology to help them manage their health.

    As you know, our country is facing big challenges to the healthcare system. Yet, many of the long-term illnesses that impact so many lives and cost so much to treat are entirely preventable.

    It has been shown by healthcare professionals that mobile technology is an effective way for patients to manage their conditions and for people to maintain and improve their health. Despite this, mobile Health (mHealth), which can include everything from step counters and stress busting apps to personal diabetes monitoring and skin cancer diagnosis tools, is a relatively unknown area for many people. It requires more awareness, and we need more help navigating the options available.

    This programme provides an unmatched education in mHealth. Your child will be made well aware of how they can use mHealth solutions for the benefit of themselves, their friends and their families, teaching them how to find the best and, importantly, safest apps available to them.

    After half term, during their PSHCE lesson time, your child will be introduced to the programme and learn about many aspects of mHealth. Please ask them about this programme and visit the site at www.fishermore-lancs.digitalhealthyschools.co.uk - you too can benefit from what they are learning!

  • Update - 31 December 2020

    Published 31/12/20

    31 December 2020

    Dear Parents and Carers

    Yesterday, the government provided information on how schools are to reopen after the Christmas holidays.  In this letter, I will outline our plans for reopening that fulfils that guidance and that will be in place from Monday 4 January 2021 at Fisher More.

    We will open on Monday 4 January 2021 for the children of critical workers and some other identified groups of children only. If you are a critical worker, I ask you to contact the school via the following email address: adviseus@fishermore.lancs.sch.uk  by midday tomorrow to identify your critical worker role so we can add your child’s name to our list .  This will enable us to form a group bubble of these children following previous guidance.  Please do not send your child into school on Monday if you have not contacted the school as stated or been contacted by Mr Walmsley or Mr Swarbrick.  School will start for this group of children at 10am not the usual start time of 9am.  This is to enable us to put everything necessary into place for the children.  All other year groups are to remain at home next week (4 - 8 January 2021).  Year 11 pupils will receive remote learning from staff for that week; all other year groups will have work set by their class teacher in order to support them in their learning.

    From Monday 11 January 2021, Year 11 pupils will return to school and follow their normal timetable along with the children of critical workers and other identified groups.  All other year groups will remain at home. These children will receive remote learning from their class teachers that week.

    As it stands, all children will return to school from Monday 18 January 2021.

    You may have also heard that testing of children and staff for COVID-19 will take place.  School has received guidance on how this must be done.  During next week, we will be making plans on how we will carry this out at Fisher More and we will send out more information about this early next week.

    If you child is in receipt of free school meals and is attending school, lunch will be provided as normal; if not in school, vouchers will be provided as previously.  If you have any concerns or questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Fitzpatrick on the school phone number next week.

    As I mentioned earlier in the letter, please advise us if you are a critical worker via our 'advise  us' email by MIDDAY TOMORROW so we can be ready to receive your child back into school on Monday.

    As you are probably aware, everything is changing very quickly and often dramatically in a very short time period of time.  As a school, we are having to respond to these changes as best we can.  We will make sure we keep you as fully informed as possible and welcome the support you are giving us as we try to put everything into place that is being asked of us.

    I wish you a very happy new year and hope that the New Year brings us eventually to a return to some sense of normality.

    Yours faithfully

    Ms C Hayes

    Headteacher
