St. Philip’s leads the way

St. Philip’s has received a prestigious national award in recognition for outstanding provision in the visual and performing arts. The Leading Aspect Award recognises our school’s commitment to providing:
“A creative approach to learning through the visual and performing arts and presenting learners with a variety of opportunities in their education.”
Many thanks to all those who have helped towards achieving this special accolade.

Key 103 Scanner Appeal

Many thanks to those parents and children who raised £106.27 for Key 103’s Cash for Kids appeal by making and selling cakes after school in the playground. The money collected will go towards the £80,000 needed for a new scanner at Manchester Children’s Hospital.

Diocesan Creativity Day


In May, St. Philip’s were asked to contribute to the ‘Diocesan Creativity Day’. Four schools from across the diocese were involved in an event aimed at promoting creative approaches to teaching and learning in Catholic schools. Mrs Slack and Miss Magdzinski led a practical art session for staff, demonstrating the artistic process which leads to the outstanding work produced by our children in school. After lunch, seven Y5 children led a liturgical sign for all those in attendance.

Geraldine Bradbury, Director of Education at Salford Diocese, praised and thanked the children and staff for all their efforts.
