Welcome to Billinge St Aidan's C of E Primary School

A child's first step into full-time education is very important and it must be a positive and happy experience. Our aim at St Aidan's is to provide a calm, happy and secure environment which is also stimulating, challenging and exciting.

Your child will gain in confidence and initiative, work hard, learn to think independently and experience the satisfaction which comes from their own achievements and successes.  Our dedicated and professional teaching staff are committed to developing the best that is in every child.

We have developed this web site to provide information for parents considering St Aidan's for their child's education and to provide a wealth of useful information and resources for parents of children already with us.

Headlines Of The Week

As you will be aware our school was inspected on Wednesday this week by an HMI. We will have the full report after Easter and will make sure you receive copies of this. We feel the Inspector got a true reflection of our school. He made some lovely comments about what he saw and particularly the attitude and kindness of the children. We were incredibly moved by the response from parents to the online questionnaire and the support and feedback from you during the inspection. Thank you.

PTA News:

Many thanks to all the parents and staff who helped on Wednesday. As always the children had a fantastic time - we now look forward to the Summer Fayre!
Our Reading Garden is well under way. It looks brilliant and the children cannot wait to start using it. The children will be able to read, draw, write and chat in this area. We are confident that it will also be accessible to Infants at lunchtimes even though it is on the Junior yard.


Thanks to the support of Mrs Colley we will be providing all children from Reception to Y6 with a Bible on Monday morning. We hope that they will treasure them and enjoy reading them. The children’s names have been written in the front. We would ask Year 4 in particular, to keep their Bibles safe as their RE topic in Year 5 is about this special book and it will be useful for them to have a Bible to bring into school.

Children’s University:

Good luck to our Graduates who will celebrate their Graduation on Monday the 27th of March at Hope University. We hope you have a wonderful afternoon.

Infant Performing Arts:

Tickets are now on sale for these two shows from the office. Adults are £2.50 and children £1.

Easter Egg Hunt:

The Easter Egg Hunt is an absolute ‘highlight’ for all our children. This will take place for all children from Nursery to Year 6 on Friday the 31st of March. We need your help with donations of Easter Eggs for the hunt. Please can every child in school donate an Easter Egg, there are some offers in supermarkets at the moment.
