Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award Day Walks

Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award Day Walks

23rd & 24th March 2019

Well done to 34 of our Year 10 Duke of Edinburgh participants who practiced their navigation on Saturday or Sunday. They covered a total distance of just under 8 miles and learned compass techniques and map-reading in preparation for their planned expeditions.

All our students did extremely well.

Mr J Cudworth – Duke of Edinburgh coordinator.

Special thank you to all voluntary staff who helped out over the weekend – Martyn Wilson, Mr Healey, Mrs Thompson – Miss Chadderton – Mrs Hugo – Miss Harvey.

Keep track with our new parents’ app

We are launching a brand new parent’s mobile app called MyEd this week. The new app not only gives you school news and information direct to your phone, but through the app you can also monitor your child’s attendance and performance in school.

Full instructions of how to get the app and connect with your child’s data are on our dedicated app page which you can access by tapping the link below.

MyEd School App Information Page

Please make sure you put a security PIN code on the app & enable your phone to accept push notifications to start receiving instant messages. Once you have connected the school to the app on your device you can start communicating directly to the school.

Any feedback about the app will be greatly appreciated. One parent has already commented on it:

“I downloaded it and a few hours later both of my children were added to the app. I can see absences and attendance records and their school timetables. The app seems really useful with loads of info and resources all in one place. The school dinner app links to the Bury website, something we have not been able to access previously.”
