At Larkhome, it is important that our children have a voice in how our school develops. Each year the children vote for their representatives to join the school council. The school council is led by Miss Smith and Eco Club is led by Mrs Sims who is supported by Mrs Foulkes (Governor) who is our link for RotaKids.

We also have Head Boy and Head Girl who represent Larkholme at key events and house captains who help lead the house teams: Wyre, Boston, Marr and Hewitt.

Current Council Projects.


Thanks to the fantastic Larkholme PALS we are beginning to put together our outdoor reading/chill out café based on the children’s designs. More pictures to come as we develop this area further!

Today our Larkholme friends presented representatives from Kindness Counts with the proceeds from our recent non uniform day. The charity works alongside schools to encourage kindness and friendships. Our current group of year 6 Larkholme Friends will soon be handing over the reins and we will shortly be looking for some current Year 5’s who would be interested in being a Larkholme Friend next year.

Thank you to Kindness Counts for your continued support and we look forward to working with you on our new outdoor reading area.

Today Eco Club worked with our Chair of Governors (thank you Mrs Atkinson) to weed our big planters. Then they met with the Premises Committee and were able to ask the governors questions about the school. Including asking the governors to investigate about solar panels for the school and how our waste removal is managed!

Picture News Crew- Sign Language Assembly

A huge well done to our Eco Club who have earnt the Green Tree School Gold Award for Larkholme. They have planted trees, led assemblies, completed fund raising and raised awareness.

Thank you to everyone who donated a teddy for our Asthma UK teddy donation. Our Larkholme Friends made sure they were all handed over safely.

A big thank you to Eco Club who led our assembly yesterday and shared the story about The Man Who Planted Trees.

Our newly formed Picture News Crew met today to decide which assembly they would like to deliver to the whole school in a few weeks’ time. Lots of very in-depth discussions took place and there were some very persuasive arguments before the voting took place. Democracy and British Values in action! #picturenews

Today we had a visit from Darran, who works for WISE(Waste Investigations, Support & Enforcement), and on behalf of Wyre Council. First of all he went with Eco club on litter pick and we filled 4 bin bags worth of rubbish! He then led a whole school assembly and we discussed why littering is bad for the environment. He also made links to the rule of law explaining that littering is a criminal offence and fines can be more than £100. If it goes to court costs can be up to £2500! The children were very passionate talking about reducing the amount of litter in order to protect the environment and their future.

Thank you to Darran for his time and kind donation of extra litter pickers as well as to Eco Club for their work this afternoon.

We would like to say a big thank you to two of our Governors, Mrs Atkinson and Mrs Thwaites. They were interviewed by Eco Club, who wanted to learn more about how decisions were made in school and whether some of their ideas could be taken for future consideration.

Today our lovely head boy and head girl, delivered a Christmas hamper to the residents at Fleetwood Hall Care Home. We wish them all a very merry Christmas

A big thank you to everyone who was able to join us for the Lantern Parade on Saturday. We had a lovely time!

2H would also like to say a big thank you to Mr Binyon, who came in to talk about the work he does with HM Coastguard Fleetwood. He talked about how to stay safe around water and answered lots of questions!

Eco Club would like to say a huge thank you to Blackpool Explorers who have made and donated a selection of bird boxes for our outdoor area.

Today Eco Club went to The Mount in Fleetwood to help pant bulbs ready for spring. A huge thank you to Georgia for organising this event for us. Also a big thank you to Mark Bradley from Rossall who very kindly drove the minibus.

Larkholme friends introduced our new Kindness Trophy in our assembly today. This was kindly donated by Kindness Counts. Staff and pupils can nominate each other for acts of kindness. The class who has the most nominations at the end of the half term will win the trophy until the next count. Any nominations that really stand out will be then sent on to Kindness Counts themselves to go into a draw to win a prize or letter from the Mayor. Next time you’re in school, feel free to make a nomination using our big red post box and the slips sat on top.

Thank you to our amazing Larkholme Friends, and to Kindness Counts for all of their support!

Thank you to everyone who came dressed in their PJs today. We have raised over £250 for Children in Need.

A big thank you to the Rotary Club who gave the Eco Club a check for £50 to help them start a money making project. The Eco club used £20 to buy the ingredients needed to run a biscuit sale. Eco Club has raised £139, which is a brilliant start to our pond fund.

The Eco Club will be coming up with some new ideas very soon for their next money raising idea!

A big thank you to all the members of Eco Club for giving up their time this week for the sale and thank you to everyone who has supported them to raise some money.

A big thank you to our head boy and head girl for representing Larkholme at the Remembrance Day parade and placing our wreath at the Cenotaph.

We will remember them ????

Today, a group of our year 6 children led our remembrance assembly. They reminded us of the importance of taking time to reflect and to think of others, both past and present.

Our head boy and head girl will be attending the service on Sunday and will be laying our wreath at the cenotaph.

Throughout the day our pupils will be taking time to reflect on Remembrance day and what it means.

On the 11th May 2023, Year 2 each made a coronation stick in an Outdoor learning session with Miss Howell. They all participated in writing a letter congratulating King Charles on his coronation which we sent directly to Buckingham Palace. Yesterday, we received a response! The children in Year 2 couldn’t believe it! What an amazing piece of History for Larkholme to hold onto.

Today, Eco club led our assembly. They introduce themselves and explained the work they have been doing around school. They are asking for everyone to take part in Cut Your Carbon November #cutyourcarbon They are hoping that everyone will be able to try at least one of the challenges. At the end of November Eco Club will be completing a survey and collating our results to share with the Cut Your Carbon campaign.

Today Eco Club took part in a workshop delivered by Georgia from Wyre County Council. They spent the afternoon harvesting seeds from berries in order to plant our very own tree nursery. We have planted rowan, hawthorn, cherry, pear and blackcurrant seeds although we might have to wait a while as it can take up to 2 years for them to start growing! Hopefully, we will see signs of growth this spring.

Eco club would like to say a huge thank you to Georgia for a great afternoon!

Today, our Larkholme Friends were lucky enough to meet with ambassadors from the charity Kindness Counts. They have been extremely kind and donated a personalised buddy bench to school. We have also been gifted personalised t-shirts and badges for each of our Friends, so that other children can easily recognise them over lunches. Our Friends will be there to help other children who are feeling upset, have nobody to play with or to just have a chat! You may also notice a large post box has appeared outside the library, we will share further info on this soon!

To help raise funds for this amazing charity, we now have a collection box in the foyer for any old technology such as mobile phones that can be recycled. Kindness Counts also run their own events, such as a make a Christmas Card competition. Look out for further details on these.

We would like to express a huge thank you to all at Kindness Counts for helping us spread kindness at Larkholme!

The children in 3/4I made PowerPoints about their outdoor learning this term.



Local Democracy Week 2023

Today, our Head Boy and Head Girl and our Y6 School Councillors were invited to be involved with Local Democracy Week 2023 at Wyre Council!

Brooklyn, Jessica, Ruben and Liam met with other children from other local schools and engaged in a variety of interaction and activities. They were involved in a vote and asked questions about what would happen if they was a draw. They also had a go at spending a budget – such important decisions were made, with very good reasons and arguments!

Today our head boy and head girl delivered all of the harvest donations to the Pantry and have received a lovely letter of thanks.

Eco club have had their first meeting and have chosen their actions for this term. They plan to work on making the school a greener place by making sure lights are turned off, blinds are opened and interviewing the Governors about bigger green school plans.
