Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero

Tuesday 16th November 2021

Good morning!  I hope you are all well today.


  • If you are a YEAR 6, then please go to the school blog and find my post.  There is a link on it, which I'd like you to click on. 
  • This is a safe link which will ask you which school you go to and which town your school is in. 
  • There will then be some questions asking you for your opinions about our lovely school, class, RE lessons and values.
  • You only have until 11:30am TODAY before the link stops working.
  • If you are too poorly, or miss the deadline, please don't worry; thank you to anyone who manages to complete it.
