Year 7 and 10 food technology pupils worked hard to create a brilliant banquet serving a high quality afternoon tea to senior citizens of the local community. Run by Mrs Roby, Miss Whitworth and Mr Davies, the tea party has been an important annual opportunity for the school and our pupils to give back to the community and this year was no exception.
This year the event also celebrated the Ninetieth Birthday of our Queen.
Mrs Roby, Miss Whitworth, Miss Brier and Miss Clayton worked with their very talented Key Stage 4 pupils to cater for the event with sandwiches, pastries, cakes and scones for our guests to enjoy. Year 10 pupils also volunteered to act as hosts for the afternoon and displayed fantastic kindness and consideration to our guests.
Our brilliant Boys Choir and Glee Choir provided excellent musical entertainment for our guests and there were also solo performances. Our Senior Citizens had a thoroughly great time. We now look forward to next year’s event.

ParentPay has changed, and as we no longer allow cash payments in school it’s vital that you understand how to use the all new ParentPay system. So I’ve decided to make it nice and simple by outlining all the things you need to know below. Hope this helps!
The journey of paying for an item on ParentPay is essentially made of 2 steps, the 'My Account' step and the 'Item' step.
Step 1 - 'My Account'
'My Account' is like having your own little ParentPay bank account. It’s an overall pot of money that you can add funds to and withdraw funds from at your leisure.
At this stage, you have not paid for a specific item, you have simply added to your 'My Account' pot!
Step 2 - 'Item'
The item step comes once you have added money to 'My Account'. If there is money in 'My Account', you can now transfer/assign as much or as little of that money to an 'Item', whether it be school meals or a trip.
I hope this helps. If you are struggling to get logged in or have any other queries about ParentPay, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Salendine Nook High School
On Tuesday 14 June, the MFL department held the annual Primary Languages Afternoon. It was attended by Y6 pupils from Lindley, Spring Grove and Moorlands. The Year 6 pupils had great fun getting stuck into language and cultural sessions, which were run by some of our Year 8 pupils.
The Year 8s did a fabulous job both in engaging the younger children and representing our school. We were very proud of them.
In French, Y6 made use of our ICT facilities and their French language skills to create a poster in French about a celebrity of their choice In Spanish, they learned about the different places where Spanish is spoken and cut and glued to decorate a fan. In the Japanese session, they learned basic greetings, how to count to ten and made a booklet using special Japanese pens.
The afternoon whizzed by and everyone had lots of fun. We value our links with our Primary colleagues and this is a wonderful opportunity for us all to get together and have fun learning about different languages and cultures.
