Letters home

Letter from Fr. Frank

Letter from out CEO regarding Coronovirus

Dear parent(s)/carer(s),

For this Lent, we have been asked to participate in a fundraising exercise for CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Overseas Development).  All of the Catholic schools in our CMAT (22 schools) have been set a challenge of raising the equivalent of £1.00 per person. For our school that means a ‘goal’ of £247.00.  

In our Act Of worship on Monday this week, we looked at the focus for CAFOD’s current work, which is supporting people who live in the Amazon Rainforest. Here the equivalent of the size of a Premier League football pitch is being burned each minute!!  I have asked your child(ren) to tell you about this in order for us all to understand what the danger is to people and wildlife, plus the devastation of our planet! I look forward to your support with this.

Best wishes,

Jean Connor

Lay Chaplain

FLU immunisations - important


Dear Parent or Guardian,

We have had a number of inquiries from parents of children who have recently had chickenpox as they are unsure about their eligibility for the flu jab. We have consulted the immunisation service for advice and the position is as follows:

  • Children who have had chickenpox or have been unwell recently can still have the jab as long as they haven't been prescribed anti-viral medication and they are well on the day.
  • It is possible to pull your child out of the immunisation after you have given consent but you MUST let the school office know. 
  • It is best to consent to the jab, even if you are unsure. If you consent and your child doesn't receive the jab for any reason, this will defer the request and trigger a follow up email telling you how to access the catch up system. If you don't consent, you will not be given this opportunity. 
  • The advice from the immunisation team is to give consent as this will keep your options open. If you want to access advice directly from them, please call 0300 3000 007.

Kind regards,

Mrs. Jan Coghlan (Assistant head teacher)

World Book Day 2019

Young Voices Final Reminders:


  1. Your child will need 2 x packed lunches tomorrow - 1 for lunchtime + 1 for teatime. (Free School Meal children will receive their lunch, so only 1 will be required). The children will be responsible for their own belongings during the trip, so please ensure they are in a named bag and the contents are disposable, so that the children do not have to worry about losing their lunch box/drinks bottle. Also, because of Health and Safety regulations at the venue, they cannot contain glass bottles or cans.


  1. It gets quite warm on the stage and singing is thirsty work, so plenty to drink is essential!


  1. Children will be given their YV T-shirts before we leave. If you have not ordered a t-shirt for your child, please ensure they have a plain white t-shirt to change into. All children should wear their usual school trousers or skirts (not girls pinafores).


  1. We will arrive back at school at approximately 10.15pm, but we will contact you on our way back, by text, with an update.

Please see the 'Growth Mindset' link under the 'Information' tab. It outlines the work we're doing at the moment on the way children view their own learning. Each month we're focusing on a different value which will promote a healthy attitude towards the challenges they face - during January we've concentrated on perseverance.
