Message from the Headteacher

Dear Parents/Carers


As you can see, I have made significant changes to how our school newsletter appears and how  you can access the information.


We have been experiencing many technical difficulties with Sway (our previous platform) and the many hours it was taking to produce the weekly newsletter was not cost effective for the school.  Therefore, we are trialling this method until the end of the academic year.  If it is successful, we will continue to use this next academic year.


The standard sections will be:

  • Message from the Headteacher
  • School News and Information
  • Catholic Life of the School
  • Forest School
  • Teacher Talk - Willow Class
  • Teacher Talk - Beech Class
  • Teacher Talk - Sycamore Class
  • Teacher Talk - Oak Class
  • Attendance
  • PTA Events and News
  • Community News
  • Diary Dates


Further information will be available as follows:

  • Celebration Assemblies - will be reported  in 'School News and Information'.
  • Love Reading - can be found in Home>Learning>Recommended Reads
  • Online Safety - can be found in Home>Parents>Online Safety
  • Health and Wellbeing - can be found in Home>Parents>Health and Wellbeing.  Parents will receive additional information about parental workshops etc via email throughout the year.


As always, thank you for your continued support and if you ever wish to contact me about any issue, please do not hesitate to email me at:


Kind regards
