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

News (Week Ending 19th Jan)

This term has got off to a busy start for us all! On Wednesday, children in Y5 participated in an intra school Sports hall Athletics event at Oakhill where they did a range of different events. The Lego Robotics session on Monday for KS2 children went really well and we have 11 parents signed up for the KS1 session next week.
We have sent out information about a course for parents – Keeping Up with the Children in English KS2. There will be three sessions running from 9am to 11.30am on Tuesday mornings starting on 28th January. Children join in for the last part of the morning and the outcome should be that parents feel better able to support their children with homework and learning at home. Please let the office know if you would like to attend.
On Tuesday we have a Resilience Day for KS2 provided by One Goal. The children will learn about The 6 Habits Mindset comprising attitude, behaviour, courage, determination, enthusiasm and friendship. The 6 Habits Mindset helps to build children’s resilience, shape their character and improve their overall health and wellbeing. The day will include role play and participating in numerous activities enabling the children to apply their learning.
On Wednesday we have KS2 Mass in church and you are all welcome to join us. Children doing the Sacramental Programme have had several after school classes and are attending church as part of the programme. Our prayers are with these children during their special journey.

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
