School closed on Monday 13th June 2016

A reminder that Monday 13th June is an INSET training day and school will be closed to pupils all day. 

Summer lunch option

From Tuesday 14th June, our catering team will be offering a picnic bag as Option B (Monday - Thursday) on the lunch menu.

The bag will be filled with delicious healthy treats such as pizza pasties, home made wholemeal buns filled with tuna or cheese, fruit, vegetables and home made cookies. The new menu option has been sent to all parents by email and can be found on the school website in the school meals section.

The Animal Man Show

Macclesfield Academy are playing host to Simon Airey, wild animal expert, on Thursday 30th June at 7pm to raise funds towards the school expedition to Southern India in July 2017.

15 students will be heading off to work with children in the slums of Chennai and helping to construct a house for a family in Kerala amongst other exciting experiences. They are holding a fundraising event to help them raise the £3000 per person required to take part in this fantastic opportunity. Tickets for the event are priced at £5 per adult and £3 for u16s and are available from Macclesfield Academy school office. 

Advice from the school nurse

There have been a number of cases of head lice reported in school. Our school nurse has provided us with the following advice for parents and carers

  1. Please check your child's hair regularly, ideally every time their hair is washed.
  2. Use a fine toothed head lice comb to brush through your child's hair at least every 4 days.
  3. If you find any live head lice, please treat with an appropriate solution from the pharmacy.
  4. Continue to comb regularly even if you have applied a treatment - the lice have a 4 week cycle.
  5. Please ensure that if your child's hair is shoulder length or longer, that it is tied back in school at all times.

Macclesfield Half Marathon and 5k      Community Challenges

This year, schools have been invited to take part in a new community challenge at the Macclesfield Half Marathon and 5K.
