All are welcome here to walk with Jesus as we love, learn and flourish.

News for Week Ending 9th Feb

Firstly a big thank you for your support for our non-uniform day for St Joseph’s Penny appeal. We have been able to send £140 to the Diocese.
Please note that all the after school clubs finish next week and the new ones start after half term. There are spaces in all the clubs except Pilates. Please let the office know as soon as possible if you would like to make a booking for your child. As a reminder the clubs are:
Monday: KS2 Zumba
Wednesday: KS1 Dance
Thursday: KS2 Orienteering
Friday: KS2 Football
Orienteering is an exciting and challenging outdoor sport that exercises mind and body. The aim is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map. The coach brings an electronic tagging device for each child which is fun to use. If your child would like to try out this interesting activity, please let the office know.
As you know, Amanda is leaving this week. From Monday 10th February Chrissy Paterson will be in the office for four weeks on an interim basis. I am sure you will all make Chrissy very welcome and bear with her whilst she learns the ropes! Amanda will be in school with her next Monday and Tuesday to help.
On Monday 9th March the new permanent Office Manager,
Julie Dawson, starts.

Following Boris Johnson’s 8pm announcement we now know that as of midnight tonight the country has entered a new period of Lockdown, a Lockdown that includes the closure of school. 

School will be open for the children of Key Workers and for pupils who are deemed vulnerable. All pupils will be provided with work in order for them to keep learning. 

Tonight’s announcement was very short notice for you as parents and also for us as a Staff. Tomorrow, by 11am there will be three tasks on the school website for each Class to complete as their Tuesday learning. However, School will be closed to ALL pupils tomorrow. 

 

Staff, however, will be in school preparing for the rest of the Lockdown. Through tomorrow we will prepare school to make it safe for Key worker pupils and vulnerable children to return. 

We will send out a form for you to apply for a place in the Keyworker Bubbles and we will let you know more about how children will be learning remotely. We will do our very best to re-open to Key Worker children and vulnerable pupils by Wednesday. 

I am aware of how difficult this is for you all, School closing creates a multitude of problems for everyone but data surrounding this awful disease dictates that this is a necessary step. As ever, the safety and health of everyone must be a priority. 

Thank you for your continued support and we will be in frequent contact over the next few days. 

Many thanks

Claire Halstead
