Sports Days:


Thank you to everyone who was able to come along and watch our Sports Days this week.  We were lucky with the weather this year.  Well done to every child that took part.



Good-bye and Good Luck:


We are going to be saying good-bye to several members of our St. Martin’s staff this summer.

We wish Miss Fabian, Mrs Rawsthorne and Mr Mulock every success with her future ventures, as they leave St Martin’s to take up positions in other areas.  We will, however, still see Mr Mulock in school next year, two days a week, in his new role as an external P.E provider.


We will also be saying good-bye and good luck to two members of our team who are retiring this summer after long dedicated careers at St. Martin’s.  We wish Mrs Baird and Mrs Tyler long and very happy retirements as they begin a new chapter in their lives.


We would like to thank them all for their commitment to school and their hard work and we wish them all well with their new adventures.  We hope they all enjoy a happy and successful future.

School Uniform


Uniform is currently available from Debonair in Oldham.

We always look forward to seeing all of our pupils looking smart in their full school uniform in September.

Even though it is coming to the end of the school year, all of our children are still expected to attend school in their full school uniform.


We also have a large selection of new and nearly new uniform in school which you are welcome to have free of charge!


Every child should be wearing:

Yellow polo shirt or white shirt

Green sweat shirt or cardigan

Grey shirt or trousers

Black or grey socks

Black school shoes (not trainers)


PE kits are also part of the uniform, and should consist of:

White t-shirt

Green sports shorts

Black pumps and outdoor trainers


Please make sure that ALL of your child’s uniform is clearly labelled with their name to avoid any lost items.

Thank you.
