Reading Challenge

Well done George Franklin in Class 3 for being the first winner of our Bronze Award. Congratulations!

Friday Favourites are back!!!!

Pizza was delivered to class for Friday Favourites today and went down very well!  Mrs Halliwell and the kitchen staff have some great ideas for future Friday Favourites including popping chicken and hotdogs.  

If your child would like to join in please let the office know by Wednesday.  It’s £2.30 for Junior children.

National Poetry Day 1st Oct 

We are celebrating this year virtually!  Each class will perform a poem they are learning to the school via our interactive white boards.  


Thank you for the positive feedback about online homework.  See our website for this week’s work.  Each class has spellings and a multiplication task.


If you haven’t already activated your ParentPay account, please do so as soon as possible.  Until all parents and carers have done so, we are unable to fully launch the service.  If you have any questions or need any help, please contact the office.

October – the month of the Holy Rosary

As October is the month of the Holy Rosary, we will be praying the Rosary each day.  Each class will also have the chance (weather permitting) to gather at our outdoor Sacred Space and pray together. Please ask your child about this and try to pray together at home if you can.
