GEMS' Noticeboard

Thank you to parents/carers for supporting our fund-raising event on 26th May for the victims of the Manchester.  We have donated £356.65 to 


Our children wrote prayers and released balloons in remembrance of those affected by the incident in Manchester on 22nd May 2017.




We understand that parents are worried following the tragic events in Manchester. We are in unsettling but fast changing times.  


We have also seen false rumours that all Salford schools have been closed on police advice. This is absolutely untrue – please see GMP website to get the latest, accurate information http://www.gmp.police.uk/


It’s crucial that we all try and remain calm, reassure our children and only seek or repeat information from official sources. Salford schools are open and ready to support children emotionally through chances to talk, the safety of predictable routines and spend time with their friends and teachers enjoying ordinary everyday activities.


Salford City Council works very closely with Greater Manchester Police, particularly at times like this to share any relevant safety information for the public.


GMP have stepped up patrols in our communities to provide reassurance.


Our schools have their normal security and safeguarding plans and procedures.


If anything changes the police will advise the public directly – and Salford City Council will share that information with schools and parents or carers.


Please be vigilant but our strength lies in returning to business as normal as soon as possible.




Dear Parents/Carers,

As you will be aware the school was inspected by Ofsted on the 20th and 21st April 2017. Following a very thorough two-day Inspection, the Ofsted Inspectors concluded that Godfrey Ermen Memorial is a ‘good school.’

We are pleased that the Inspectors recognised the improvements within the school and noted how well staff, governors, pupils and parents/carers collaborate within our school community.


On 27th April 2017, the school also had a separate Religious Education Inspection – which also found that as a Church of England School, our distinctiveness and effectiveness is ‘good.’


You can read both the Ofsted Inspection Report and the RE Inspection Report below.

Dear Parents/Carers,

I am writing to you on the advice of the Police about an app named MUSICAL.LY which I am aware a number of children will have access to.

Whilst this app is totally innocent and a creative app for children to use, it does have the facility to connect to other people throughout the world.  We have today been advised that a girl of 9 years of age from Salford has been contacted by a man using this app and a process of grooming had started.  Fortunately the parents were vigilant in checking the phone and have been able to report the matter to the police.

We regularly remind children never to communicate with anyone online that they do not know personally and will be repeating this message again this week.

Could I ask you to also reiterate this advice strongly with your child.

Thank you,

Mrs Clancy
