Head's Newsletter

Dear Pupils, Parent, Staff, and Governors,

We have had a fantastic maths week this week and the children have really enjoyed solving problems and puzzles.  All of the classes had a session with the Puzzle Company and got their grey matter working hard!

Year 5 and 6 Sporthall Athletics

We had a great time at Sportshall athletics. Overall we came first with 326 points. In field events we all did a brilliant job. Brandon, Lewis and Louis did an outstanding job in Javelin, throwing over a massive 15 meters. The girls Emma, Ingrid and Lara did just as well throwing over 13 meters. While Noa, Sol and Harry competed in speed bounce and scored points off the charts!! The girls also did an amazing job. Elena, Lulu, Melissa, Kalen, Ingrid, Sybil, Olivia, Odelia, Gabriella and Lara competed in the track events and came first overall. I feel a lot of the credit goes to Coach Grant for pushing all of us including myself. The parents are also the ones to thank for making our lunch and joining us on the day. We all deserve a pat on the back.

Can parents please note that there is no parking on the yellow zig zag lines outside the school gates either before or after school.  Parking here is a hazard and is a danger for our children.

The website CEOP has some very useful information about online safety and ideas for parents to initiate discussion with children regarding keeping safe on line.  This video is aimed at 5-7 year olds, and introduces young children to the idea of strangers online and how to stay safe:

The Government is making a critical decision on whether to overturn the admissions cap which prevents some schools from allowing all Catholic pupils to attend Catholic schools. By her own admission, the Secretary of State has said the rule has been ineffective and adversely affects Catholic families.

By forcing Catholic schools to turn away Catholic school children on the basis of their faith, the very principle of a Catholic parent’s right to choose a Catholic education is under threat. Please contact the education secretary to safeguard the future of Catholic education:
