Sacramental Programme

Thank you to all parents and carers of our Yr 3 pupils who are currently on this year’s Sacramental Programme.  Thank you for attending the meeting last week and Mass on Saturday.  Our next meeting is Thursday 13th June 7pm at the Parish Hall, in preparation for First Holy Communion Mass on Saturday 6th July, 11am.

New Parents’ and Carers’ Meeting

We welcome parents and carers of children joining us later this year in September to a meeting on Wednesday 5th June.  The meeting will take place in our School Hall 6-7pm where parents and carers will have the opportunity to meet our staff.  We ask that children do not attend as they have their own dates to attend our New Pupil Workshops.

Please see the separate sheet which is going home today as a reminder of our School Uniform Policy.  If you would like to discuss any aspect of it, please get in touch.  Please note that the policy has not changed at all and we appreciate your support in ensuring that this and all policies at St John’s are adhered too.
