Many of you will know from the news about the tragic road traffic accident in which a young boy died.

Charlie was one of our past pupils and his younger sister is still in our school. Could we ask that you keep Charlie and his family in your prayers at this very difficult time. 

We have been asked by the road safety team to ask all parents to take notice of the new speed limits especially in the area. Most of the roads are now 20MPH.

Can we also ask parents to make sure their children DO NOT walk across the car park. As you already know you are not allowed to use the car park gates but if you do need to come to the office please use the footpaths and cross the car park as you would any major road.


The Parents’ Evening system is now open for you to book your appointments online. Parents’ Evenings are Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th November. The appointments are for 10 minutes and we must ask you to please stick to this as there is a knock on effect if anyone takes longer. If you need to speak more in-depth to the teacher please ask for a separate appointment. The times of available appointments can be found on the parents’ evening website.

If you or anyone you know has a child who will be starting in the Foundation Stage 2 class in September 2019 we will be having an open day on November 19th. Please contact school if your child was born between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015 and you would like to look round and we will be able to make an appointment for you.


On the reverse of this newsletter is some information about Bishop Marcus’ vision for all Catholic primary and secondary schools in the Diocese moving to one of the five Catholic Multi-Academy Trusts. Please take some time to read the letter and to look on the website and read the letter from Bishop Marcus. If you have any questions there are 3 meetings arranged, the dates are on the other side of this newsletter.

Please remember school closes at 3.15 on Friday and re-opens on Monday 5th November.

The clocks go BACK one hour this weekend as we see the end of British Summer Time.

Mrs. S. O'Brien
